OverviewOverview

Hue is a puzzle game where you run and jump through platforms. You explore a grey land while searching for your missing mother. The novelty is in the coloured pieces you uncover, which when matched against obstacles will cause them to disappear, revealing new puzzles.

You need to match the right colour with the right obstacle to progress. As you progress more colours are unlocked and the game's difficulty increases. You need to combine colours to solve the more complex puzzles. There are eight colours to find in this game, and in order, the player finds aqua, then purple, then orange, then pink, then blue, then red, then yellow, and then green.
