Find your method in the madness of multicolored tiles
“I Love Hue” is a puzzle game that tests your ability to create order from chaos, as well as your sense of color. Players are faced with grids of varying sizes with multicolored tiles. The aim of the game is to put the squares in the right order so that one tile’s hue flows easily into the next, eventually forming a pleasing gradient. Get the order right, and you complete the level and move onto the next. This game is not particularly competitive: It will tell you the average number of moves it takes for all of its players to solve a puzzle, but it doesn’t rank you or even award your stars based on efficiency. The result is that you’re working through puzzles, but it’s not at all stressful.
In case you can’t tell, this is not an action-packed game — in fact, it’s about as far from action as you can get. You’re not watching paint dry, but you are essentially putting paint swatches in order. And yet, organizing the clutter can be somehow meditative. It’s a great moment when you find the right place for a square that’s been tricky to place, or when you finally understand the way the grid is supposed to look. The game has in-app purchases, but they are not necessary to play.
Free, for iOS and Android.
