Hue Ball for iOS, out June 18th

OUT NOW: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hue-ball/id957527514?mt=8

Hi everyone,

I will soon be launching Hue Ball to iOS.

Hue Ball is a chill-yet-challenging tap-to-shoot game with a pleasant mix of pinball, shuffle board, and bubble shooters. Also colors and Skulls.

- The playing field grows and morphs organically as you play
- Use skill to earn extra points and extra lives
- Game Center Leaderboards
- Free with occasional ads, and not annoyingly so. iAP option to remove ads.
- Coming to Android, but not quite yet.
- It was originally called Colornundrum, but that was a mouthful.
- Game and art by me.
- Music by @Podington_Bear.
- Game mechanic inspired by Wouter Visser's "Gimme Friction Baby."

I'll get some promo codes to you soon. Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks,

Some quick initial impressions... (I've only played for a little over 10 minutes)


Runs smooth. Love the soft and relaxing colors.
I am a little confused at the purpose of the game except to hit the correct color? But... Even when I hit the correct color, it sometimes develops a new circle.
I think I have it figured out.

So far, I love everything about the game. I would suggest though, to have directions or goals listed in the info section or settings. Otherwise, you might end up with frustrated players that choose to delete.

I will keep playing though.

Been checking almost daily for this!
How do promo codes work?

Edit: I see now. Thank you!
I took AFH74XAYF7KJ

This game is great. It should be called Orbital-killer.

Thanks for the Promo Code, I got ep6jj9fewy7m.

Got a score of 39 so far, I know now how it works you have to clear the field of dots but there is a timer running and when the timer runs down you get another circle around the dots you did not clear in time, and after 5 circles the dot becomes a monster face that you can't remove anymore.

When you bounce below the line you lose a bit of heart, the heart segment holds 5 hearts, after that it's game over.

So you need to avoid Getting too much monster faces on the field, so quick play is needed here, but it's fun to play.

Good luck with your launch next week.

Thanks for X4YKYJRMK7YE!

What Lavender said...and a little explanation would work wonder for certain people. I guess all six on the leaderboard figuered it out by now.

My little wish goes to a bit more visible "arrow" out of the cannon. Light grey on white doesn't do it for me to well.

This simple yet challenging highscore game is a nice mix of pinball, shuffle and bubble shooter (as in the description ), or think of the brilliant Orbital. The music is mesmerizing and well chosen, and the controls are responsive. For more accuracy and to get better, you definitely need to practice and find a good strategy. Looking forward to play more later.
I already would have paid the $2 to get rid of the ads, but a certain big Ninja release soak up my last money..for now.

Definitely recommend this to try out, if you like (and read) the description.
