    It’s great from start to finish and provided an incredibly consistent experience that made me want more.

    It’s a very enjoyable and at times challenging experience that never feels unfair. At times, you’ll be faced with a puzzle that looks impossible, but as soon as you figure out its design, you’ll think yourself silly for not having seen it immediately.

    A fun, challenging, original and well-constructed puzzle/platform game.

    Hue is a well-crafted, enjoyable experience. I don't usually like physics-based platformers, but the controls are simple and responsive enough that I never felt like a death was anyone's fault but my own. Its visuals are sparse but clean, and the puzzles gave my brain a workout. It's a little brief, clocking in at four to six hours, but that just means it doesn't overstay its welcome, and it left me wanting more.

    Hue is a great indie puzzle platformer with charm and character. It’s color themed mechanics work well and allow for some great puzzle platforming.

    While it never gets frustratingly fiddly, you'll also rarely be seriously taxed. Despite all those colours, Hue lacks the vibrancy of the very best puzzle-platformers. [Oct 2006, p.81]

    With tougher, longer puzzles and a proper storyline (or no story at all, for that matter), Hue could perhaps have clawed itself a couple more marks. As it is, it’s a passable puzzler that is priced according to its length and may serve as a light snack for puzzle and platform fans, but nothing more.

In terms of puzzle design it is certainly on-par with the likes of Limbo, The Swapper and other acclaimed puzzle-platformers. Most of the puzzles do not require heavy lateral thinking but there is sometimes a real-time constraint to the formula that requires you to think fast and right which makes it a rather unique (and beautiful) puzzler. The main concept of the game revolves around switching the world's ambient color so that some elements of the level appear and disappear depending on how the color affects them and the designer's variations on this theme are as numerous as they are ingenious (most of the time). What adds to my confusion on how mild some of the reviews are is how exquisite this game is on so many levels: the artwork is simple yet lovely (no retro pixelated crap), the soundtrack features some delightful piano pieces which render a calm and soothing mood and the story/narration while simple, is well told, heartfelt and very much engaging - this makes for a very well done game in every regard. In all, I completed the game in around 5 hours which makes the 17$ ish price-tag much reasonable. In short, if you appreciated Braid, Fez (imho, Hue's puzzles are better), Limbo (kinda weak on the puzzle side but oh the incredible ambiance!), Hue is a game for you - no pun intended. Expand

    Su única pega es la corta duración del título, y quizá alguna ausencia como un modo multijugador que le hubiera venido de perlas al títuloSu única pega es la corta duración del título, y quizá alguna ausencia como un modo multijugador que le hubiera venido de perlas al título (con cada jugador usando una paleta de colores distinta). Pero lo que ya tenemos es un plataformas de puzzles bonito, disfrutable y muy bien realizado, tanto artísticamente como jugablemente, que desde aquí deseamos que no pase desapercibido. Expand

It has a lot of positives from which I have to speak about the magnificent and relaxing soundtrack and interesting puzzle mechanics.

    Probably 70% of the time we will be pointlessly walking around, and some puzzles have difficulty pikes I cannot understand.

    Overal is still a great game, just not a 10/10.
