HUEBRIX

JohnBHUEBRIX, a logic-based puzzle game by Yellow Monkey, wants your brain. Not in a zombie-eating kind of way, but in a cool, challenging way. Similar to games like PathPix and Link-a-Pix (or a number of other Conceptis releases), HUEBRIX challenges you to fill out a grid of squares by dragging "color snakes" around the board. All of this happens on a timer, so you've got to be smart, you've got to be fast, and it wouldn't hurt to have a positronic brain, either.

HUEBRIXEach level in HUEBRIX fills your screen with a grid populated by numbered, colored squares. By dragging these squares, you can draw a colored line through the surrounding spaces. With each grid square you travel, the color square's number is reduced by one. The goal is to fill the entire board with color, leaving no gaps and working as quickly as you can to get a shinier medal for completing the stage. Later, on-screen icons like one-way arrows and off-screen teleport tunnels appear, turning your once simple strategies into more complex feats of logical prowess.

HUEBRIX comes with 105 levels out of the box, more than half of which are in the easy category. You can dip into the in-game store to buy well over 300 more, with difficulty levels ranging from easy to insane. And yes, they really are insane. You have a limited number of hints to use to get yourself out of tricky positions, but more can be bought in the store. Best of all, the iOS version of the game comes with a custom level creator, allowing you to create, send, and receive puzzles with friends!

Not only is HUEBRIX a full and challenging puzzle game, it also manages to add something a little bit different to a well-established genre. Kudos for that, and kudos for featuring heaps of puzzles to work through!

Great game. The review should mention that the browser version only has 35 levels. I'm guessing the reviewer didn't play that version.

Did anyone else spit coffee this morning because of how great the NAME of this game is? I will be checking it out on the merits of the name alone...although the graphics look great and I love logic puzzles!
