    If you come home from your 8-hour job exhausted every day, you’re too tired to mess with logical games. But you do need to keep your brain in shape and the game provides relaxing color-grid gameplay that will prepare you for sleep and also provide the brain a great exercise.

    If you ever just want to zone out for 10 minutes, relax on the couch, and play a game that is relaxing and filled with pretty colors? Then look no further, here you can enjoy color-based games for a visually relaxing moment.

    Very satisfying to get lost in the colors and the shot of dopamine when I solve the image.

  • Stunning. Absolutely perfect. Jun 28, 2019

    By Sunnycalih
    This game is marvelous. I was looking for a game to doze to sleep by that engaged me, was beautiful, but didn’t stress me out. This is everything I was looking for and more. The visuals are exquisite. The little encouraging messages are so nice as you doze in bed. Seeing your ranking vs the world average is a nice nod to your achievement, without making it an ongoing intense competition. The musical tones are used perfectly, only as a reward after finishing hand as you start a round. Otherwise you just get to play in silence. Calm, mesmerizing, silence. And the tones that do play are so unobtrusive I actually leave the sound on as I play (something I rarely do with phone games). Also, the gameplay is surprisingly rewarding. It’s so cool to see the whole grid finally click together. It definitely gives the brain a fantastic little dump of positive brain-chemicals and works a beauty-appreciating part of your mind in a way rarely tapped in to so intentionally. My one complaint about this game is that they don’t have a buy-once-and-play-all-the-content-without-ads option. Seriously, even if it’s $20. You guys have made an exquisitely calming experience. It makes the awful casino style ads all the more irritating. Lol. I want to pay you to never hear them again in your beautiful game. TAKE MY MONEY. Ok, thx for your art. This wonderful. If you’re reading this, get. this. game.

    This game is a delight to play. The fact that it's color-based makes it feel a little bit creative, the music is very soothing, and the process is fun, and feels fairly brainless if you are someone who enjoys art and color.
  • One of my all time favorite apps. Feb 10, 2021

    By OriginalPebguin2011
    I’ve had this game for roughly three or four years now and decided it’s about time I left a review. I don’t know what I can say about this that hasn’t already been said but I can sure agree with all the positive reviews I’ve come across. Visuals, atmosphere, levels, ads, everything is so perfectly managed in this app. It’s all simple but truly wonderful. It’s an incredibly fun game to play but if I’m being honest I don’t usually open the game to have fun. At the end of the day this is my comfort app and it has been for a long time now. In moments where I feel incredibly stressed or anxious, both outdoors and in, opening the app and solving the stunning ombré puzzles always helps calm me down. I’m not one to stick to one gaming app for too long. I’ll usually complete it and/or get bored of it and proceed to replace it with something new. Same with apps that I download to help with anxiety or nerves. I end up switching them up because I never end up satisfied but this has certainly stayed with me for a while and it’ll definitely stay with me for a lot longer. This app just gives me a profound sense of comfort and calm while simultaneously providing an enjoyably fun time. I’m incredibly grateful for finding this and whether you want something zen or a fun game to enjoy I genuinely recommend everyone have this game downloaded.

    Only a few days in and it's a lot of "fun" if you like games that make you think. It's definitely driven by tons of ad revenue, but if you go on airplane mode it's still playable, no ads. Same as most games, you have to pay for plays after a while, but you get "free" credits to watch a video, which is available every few hours I assume. Being that I have short bursts of availability to play phone games this works for me and gives me something to focus on in this dull, discouraging life of 2021.
  • A wonderful experience in color! Nov 27, 2019

    By Islandberg
    I haven’t spent a dime on this game. I have read reviews where people say it costs money, yet I have accumulated enough hearts and prisms to unlock everything without the need to spend cash. I have been telling everyone about this gem! As a former art student and artist, I feel this game is really a study in color. It’s a zen-like experience that both calms and excites at the same time. I love that it doesn’t gouge my wallet and I can just sit back and enjoy the game. I absolutely love seeing how the shades of color play against each other. Once a square is placed in its proper position ones brain can immediately tell. What once looked off in shade suddenly registers in the brain and the puzzle starts to take shape. I am addicted to this game and enjoy seeing how my score ranks against other players. My best score was 77 moves over a 223 move world average. I was impressed with myself, that’s for sure! I think anyone who wishes to better understand color and how shades can interact with others should play this game. You will see how amazing it is. I am into the quests now and have gone past “explorer”, they just keep getting better. It’s calming and really aids in stress relief.

    very cool and relaxing game! the only thing i dislike is that as you move up levels, the puzzles dont actually get more challenging. from level 2 on is kind of just a repeat of itself with different colors. i still love it though!

    I have never written an app review before, but I Love Hue deserves as much praise as it can get. This is simple yet challenging, incredibly satisfying (dare I say addicting), and visually stunning. As someone with OCD, I have found this game to be an amazing substitute for certain rituals as well as a great coping mechanism. It’s soothing and relaxing. Each stage comes with calm, zen-like messages that are just pleasant to read. I’ve played through every single level multiple times until I beat the world average in each one, partly due to perfectionism but also so I could get compliments such as “iridescent moonbeam” and “glorious butterfly.” There are no “pay to play” features, no subscriptions, and while there ARE ads, they are extremely tolerable. Ads come up very rarely, and always between levels so there’s no risk of interruption. Plus, in my experience they have always been skippable. Overall, this has been my favorite game for almost three years now and is by far the best color-sorting game I’ve come across. This morning, I downloaded I Love Hue Too and I am already hooked! Amazing and even more extensive than its predecessor. I highly recommend both of these apps.

    Just deducted a star due to not being able to sync play between phone & tablet. Followed the directions in the FAQ, signed out and in again, and even Uninstaller and reinstalled. I play mostly on my phone and don't want to have to go all the way back to beginning levels when I pick up my tablet. We're talking levels 23 vs. 3. More challenging than I expected, but I'm enjoying it. A great way to pass the time. Recommended.
  • A Study in Color Theory? Jan 22, 2018

    By Skayell
    I was wary at first that it might be another Blendoku, my daughter ensured me that it was different. I had played Blendoku, but to me it was more aggravation than I cared for. I Love Hue is challenging, but the puzzles so beautiful, I find joy in recreating the gradients that make up the puzzles. I think this app teaches more about tints, shades, value and hue than most introductory courses you will find in a book, a beginning art class in a community college, and far more than in a workshop for beginners at your local art store. The difference between books or instruction and this app is the material is all there; there are just no descriptions that leave you wondering how you can change the hue and the amount of shading at the same time. Play this app for the fun and the beauty, but realize you are training your eyes to recognize the subtle changes in the colors. After a while you can pick up that book on color theory that was a mystery before and it just might make sense then. (I do realize the preceding was probably confusing and, possibly pointless, but pretend you understood what I was trying to communicate.)

    Super calm, very interesting and enjoyable puzzle game. Game play is complex and challenging but not frustrating, and you start to learn about color and perception as you go along and solve harder puzzles. The music and sounds are gentle and not annoying and ad to the mystique of the puzzles. Ads are there, but appropriately used so they don't disrupt game play too much. Low cost for ad-free play. The "share" function that is available after you solve a puzzle doesn't seem to work.

  • It’s a really great game Jun 2, 2020

    By Marycobb
    I enjoy anything with spectrums and colors in my daily life so downloading this game was a given when I saw it. I love that it’s not just simple gradients and they aren’t all the same. Game play is straightforward; just match the tiles to their proper place in the puzzle. So far, a week into playing the game, I have made it to the 3rd level of puzzles. I have received enough diamonds to be able to play several games each day before I run out. My kids enjoy it as well. They don’t get the concept yet, but the colors are pretty and the tiles are simple to move. The youngest just clicks around mixing them up more. The ads are fairly repetitive, but at least they are all kid safe so far and you just wait for them to play. I also appreciate the fact that none of the ads have the hidden “x” or have a dummy “x” in the corner that takes you to the App Store. That turns me off on a game, especially if the offending ad is for another game by the same developer. All in all, this is a lovely game and I enjoy playing it.

    Nice no stress, no pressure game. Nothing is timed and the music is soothing. Very enjoyable. But I wouldn't play it if you have colorblindness. It would be frustrating if you don't have an eye for color.

  • Wonderful concept Jan 23, 2020

    By Avalovesart
    This game has a wonderful concept and with a few tweaks could be even better. A lot of people have commented about the calming nature of the game. The intro music is the first thing I noticed which contributed to my own sense of calm within the game. However, I wish there was an option for the music to continue playing during game play. Second, I enjoy the idea of different levels and the motivating messages shown at completion of a puzzle. However, I wish there were more diversity in puzzle shapes even at the lower levels of the game. Although the higher levels are more mentally engaging, there are many times I would prefer a simple game with less challenge. That is possible at the lower levels, but the puzzles feel nearly the same given the square pieces for every single puzzle. Finally, despite my minor requests for improvements, this is a nice game with a different approach to engaging users and I enjoy playing it several times a week.
  • Addictive game. Minor flaws Apr 12, 2019

    By GET OFF MY LAWN
    Very rewarding to slowly move colors around to see a rainbow pattern emerge from a random field of jumbled color tiles. I sometimes have a problem seeing the tile under my fingers frequently on the levels with small pieces. Maybe dev could have an selected option to offset the tile to 1 inch away on iPhones with 3D Touch, and rotate 90 degrees each time you press hard. Also, I think you can’t exit a game to play another one unless you’ve completed the current one. This seems like it would be a frustrating issue at higher levels where the difference in hues are very slight. I imagine people with marginal screens would get stuck and they couldn’t change games. The main reason I’m giving it a 3 star rating is that after I paid $10 to purchase the game, I read the fine print which said that the money was for tokens to play the game, more or less. If I knew this was the deal, I would not have bought it. Very sneaky.

    Game is fun and I understand the need for ads, but I absolutely hate the "you spend in game currency for each level you play, and when you run out you can watch ads to earn more or spend money or wait for hours" thing. Probably going to uninstall because of that.
