It is so awesome Family Friendly Gaming was provided a digital
download code for Hue on the Playstation 4. This color shifting game is
way more challenging than I conceived it would be. So you better be up
for a challenge if you download and play Hue. I do not know of a
physical copy version of Hue at this point in time. Who knows what will
happen in the next six to nine months as long as God lets the world
continue to exist that long.
Hue starts pretty dark. There are some great colors that offset from the darkness in Hue. The goal in Hue is to get from the start of the 2D side scrolling level to the end. Note some levels go up and/or down as well as side to side. The main character gets the power of color transition. He can transition himself from plane to plane. Lets say a blue boulder is rolling towards your main character. Transition to blue and you can go through without taking any damage.
I was surprised to see religious content like the Hindu statues in Hue. I also noticed things like skeletons hanging in this digital download. There are also references to God in Hue. The voice over and music in Hue is really nice. I enjoyed it better than the game play personally. Which for me is a bit too hard. I am not a fan of difficult games personally. I like games that have difficulty settings for all gamer skill sets.
Timing and color shifting are essential in Hue. The idea for the color shifting is a cool one. I liked it. Especially in such a dark, and dank world. The beginning of Hue is so depressing to me personally. Like many other games, Hue slowly adds colors so we are not immediately over whelmed with choices. I appreciate that. I wish the game play kept that same pace.
Hue looks like an indie video game. I wonder if it has any connection to Limbo. I see some similarities between the two games. There are plenty of differences in Hue. There are not as many puzzles. Hue is more about the action adventure side scrolling. I am thankful I was able to play and review Hue on the Playstation 4. This game is also on the PC, Xbox One, and coming to the PS Vita in September in the year of our Lord 2016.
