A Review of I Love Hue (App)

I Love Hue

Type: Puzzle, Therapeutic

Basic Idea: The player matches colors in ascending and descending patterns.

Quality

Game Play: 3/5 The game consists of moving tiles that are out of sync into the correct color coordination. While there is no plot, the game’s focus is on providing a calming atmosphere and produce a thoughtful observation on the differences between colors.

Graphics: 4/5 Well Done: The game’s graphics could be summed in many words such as relaxing, therapeutic, calming, eye-balm. If you were to walk into Wal-Mart’s paint section, and set it to a background of a calming yellow, that would be the graphics of the game.

Music: 3/5 Average: The music has the kind of sound as an underwater theme in a Super Mario Bro. game. Many may find it calming, though I personally am not a huge fan of that kind of music.

Overall: The game is very simple, but the uniqueness of the game play will attract puzzle game lovers, especially if they have a love for the relaxing. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a puzzle game with calm, relaxing themes.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 0/5 None

Violence: 0/5 None

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 2/5 Controversial Content: Level names include “Mystic,” “Prophet,” “Guru,” and “Visionary.” Some of the pictures that decorate the levels may be considered a bit new age, such as the picture of an eye. The game says that you play to “unlock the mind’s eye” and each stage has a little quote, one saying you should “follow your heart.”

Magic: 0/5 None

Others: 0/5 None

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: Some Christian parents may not like some of the New Age content is used to decorate, but other than this it is a completely pure game. I would recommend it to children six to ten and older, though parents may want to first explain the meaning of the content in the game or avoid it all together.
