Hue, Fiddlestick Games' smart, colour-hopping puzzle-platformer, has today launched for iOS and Android. It arrived first for consoles and PC back in 2016 and was quite the hit with critics, largely thanks to its smart core concept and appealing presentation.
It sees you playing as young Hue, who one day heads out on a grand adventure through his metroidvania-style world to solve the mystery of his mother's disappearance. What starts out as a rather grey video game locale soon becomes a vibrant, striking land of colour and intrigue.
The basic idea is that you can alter the colour of your environment to reveal doors, disappear objects, and avoid enemies or traps. It's a really smart system that builds nicely through the game's tight runtime.
It was among the most acclaimed indies of 2016, though I don't hear nearly enough people talking about it nowadays. Let's hope the mobile ports receive the love the original game deserved.
