ABOUT THE GAME

“Alone we do so little,
together we solve the puzzle”


Huerons is a simple and minimalistic puzzle game with a single goal “Merge all Huerons until only one is left”. Things start to spice up when interesting gameplay elements like Terminal, Blender, Portals etc are introduced into the game

We are wrapping up development right now. Want to show the game to as many puzzle-lovers as we can and get feedback on the game. We are also looking to use this feedback to make the game better and design tougher levels.

Me and team members: kinshuksunil and [Himanshu Kapoor] will respond to questions and feedback here.

If you would like to have a promocode, please leave a comment here mentioning your top 3 favorite mobile puzzle games, and we will give you a code as soon as we have them.

Happy gaming!!

First I need to say your game is awesome, plain and simply awesome. You took the touch grid puzzle genre and spun it on its head. One of the best puzzle games that have played in a while. I will leave you more impressions tomorrow.

Level 11 stopped responding to the touch grid after numerous failures. The restart and undo buttons still worked.

I think at the bottom left your total moves left would have become (0000) or close to it. Every time you make a valid move (merge two or more huerons) its deducted from your pool of total moves score. When it is zero you have to wait some time for it to refresh. You can click on it to get more information

The refresh interval is right now set as a very small period of time to help with testing.. it is not how it will be in the final game.

Is Hashtag still looking for beta testers? If so, my favorite iOS puzzle games are:
Threes!
Bad Piggies
Monument Valley
Cut the Rope
Paperama

Looking forward to testing the game and leaving feedback

I wonder why this game has not been released yet. It was practiclly fully functional. Anyways, as I said before the game is amazing. Last I heard they were going to make it free to play. I think they mentioned if you fail a certain amount of times you hit a timer. I would love if they made it premium because it's so good. Maybe make a separate premium version. I would easily pay $3 or probably more. Maybe some kind of full unlock iap? Even free to play with ads. Anyways, whenever the game is released it's a must for puzzle fans. Just download it.

Update, okay, I spoke to soon. It seems like it still needs some work. Some of menus don't look right and I think the mike Tyson level seems out of place because I think it is very difficult and it should probably show up in further levels. Also the time bar at the bottom probably needs some explanation also purchasing hints. When you use a hint it seems that part of the hint disappears when you undo a move.
Dev, any new info on Huerons?

Thanks for the love fellas.

The game hasnt released yet because we made a publisher deal and are right now working on a lot of puzzles for the game.

The issues with how the puzzles flow and how difficulty increases has been fixed; it just needed better puzzle planning. A lot more work has been done on the interfaces and the game has just gone through amazing amounts of polish.

The game will not be free to play on iOS. It will be a premium game.
If things go fine, we should be released by around August.

Wish us best
