Mobile Game Recommendation: I Love Hue

I Love Hue is my latest mobile gaming addiction. It is available on Android and iPhone for free!  

The basic premise is you are given a gradient, and then have to put it back in order. Sounds like something that would get boring fast, right? You’d be sorely mistaken!

There are TONS of different gradients to choose from and with a large variety of difficulties. This really helps mix things to keep it interesting. It’s really relaxing too, looking at all those disordered colors and making sense out of it. My favorite gradients to work with are the rainbow ones, they’re just so gorgeous!

The squares with dots in the center are fixed points to give you a guide on how to organize the gradient. Maps have a varying amount of these guide squares to make it easier, or more difficult!

When you beat a level, the game is SUPER encouraging. My favorite is when it calls me an iridescent moonbeam.

Try it out today!

Video Game Recommendation: Undertale

undertalePlatform: PC

Rating: Teen

Genre: Role Playing Game, Puzzle  

First Released: September 2015

Part of a Series? Nope! Play away!

Brief Synopsis:

“Welcome to UNDERTALE. In this RPG, you control a human who falls underground into the world of monsters. Now you must find your way out… or stay trapped forever.”

Commentary:

In Undertale, there’s three routes you can take depending on how you approach battles. There is Pacifist (kill zero enemies), Neutral (kill some enemies), and Genocide (kill all enemies).

I’m going through the Pacifist route as I’m playing and holy Hera is it hard. It keeps you at level 1, 20 HP the entire game because you don’t earn any experience to level up. You have to figure out each enemies’ quirks to figure out how to convince them to not want to fight you anymore so you can spare them. Sometimes I’ve had to run back many, many screens to buy more health items because bosses are too hard to get through without healing!

Overall, it’s super, super fun though! I’ve been really enjoying it despite its difficulty and the conversations characters have with each other are hilarious (Especially Papyrus’ terrible puns. I can’t get enough of those). It also has moments that you don’t expect to kick you in the feels. You’ll know them when you get to them.

(Quick note, make sure you have plenty of healing items before getting to the “final corridor!” I only have a few and I have to hope that’ll get me through the final battle. Eek!)

When you have 10$ to spare (or a really really awesome parent), I seriously recommend grabbing it on Steam!
