“There’s a lot to love about HUEBRIX. The gameplay is addictive, the controls are smooth and responsive and the music helps calm the nerves, the graphics are simple and have a pixelated retro appeal to them that is enjoyable.” – 148Apps.com – 4/5 stars

“Almost to a tee, HUEBRIX manages to create this (the perfect puzzle game) atmosphere.” – Gamezebo.com – 4/5 stars

“Like a crossword puzzle, it’s about teasing your brain, not pumping your adrenalin.” – slidetoPlay.com – 3/4 Stars – Good

“HUEBRIX wants your brain. Not in a zombie-eating kind of way, but in a cool, challenging way.” – Jayisgames.com

“HUEBRIX is a puzzle game that requires the player to be aware and adventurous.” – AppSpy.com (4/5)

“HUEBRIX brings a fresh face to mobile puzzle games for a head-scratching good time.” (4/5)

HUEBRIX brings the “Puzzle” back to Puzzle Games. This game will test your visual, spatial and logical senses.

Solve Levels by dragging paths from blocks to fill out the puzzle grid. However, the blocks only give you paths of a specified length.

Special blocks determine the orientation of paths, acting as clues and challenges at the same time.

If you have bitten off more than you can chew, then our intelligent Hint System will give you a hint closest to your solution.

HUEBRIX will have 300 extra levels available for download via in-App, segregated by skill level for your convenience.

HUEBRIX also comes with a nifty level editor which allows you to create levels and challenge your friends to prove their awesomeness! Hello bragging rights!

(*) Full-resolution output requires lots of memory. We conservatively estimate available memory to avoid problems and display a warning if full-resolution output is not feasible.

Full resolution output only supported when saving to the gallery or sharing to other apps via Photo App Link. Facebook, Twitter, and Email use reduced resolution due to system limitations.

Note: We have had a problem reported that affects the output resolution on iPhone 3GS. We are investigating and will provide an update as soon as we have analyzed the issue. Until then we recommend that you do not update on iphone 3GS.
