If you're a fan of games like Threes! (opens in new tab) or 2048 (opens in new tab), Hues is a game you should check out. While the premise of the game is similar to other card-matching games in that you have a 4x4 grid to match different cards to earn points, instead of numbers, Hues lets you match colors.
In the game, you swipe across the grid to slide similarly colored cards, dubbed Hues, to form new colors, earning points along the way. A new Hue is created after each move. If you're not up to date on your color combinations skills, fret not, as there is a cheat sheet that lets you figure out the order to merge colors in. One of the key elements in the game is the GUI, which changes as you unlock more Hues.
The game features three modes. In Timed Mode, you have 60 seconds to get to the highest score possible. In Moves Mode, you get 75 moves to get the highest score you can. The third mode is an Endless Mode that can be unlocked via an in-app purchase of 99 cents. As the name signifies, Endless Mode does not have any limit on the time or the number of moves. Earning points let you buy power-ups, called boosters, which allow you to add moves or seconds to a particular mode.
Hues is currently available in the Play Store for free and is compatible on all Android devices running Android 2.3 and above. The game offers a few in- app purchases, like Endless Mode and a coin store that allows you to buy additional points.

Played this a while ago on my Q10. Nice to see it made the jump from BlackBerry to Android. Posted via Android Central App
I found the UI color changing part interesting. Also, the game gets super addictive after a point. I loved the simple graphics and the animations throughout the game!

10+ downloads? Sounds like a battle-tested winner! Posted via Android Central App
It's actually 100,000+ on other platforms and currently 1,000+ on Android. Takes a while for Google play to update the user numbers.
