Monday Mind Teasers: Huebrix

It’s like a maze that had a baby with a bag of Skittles

I love games that find complexity by exploring simplicity. This flash game does a great job of stripping down the fill-a-grid color maze genre, and it continually adds new path manipulation puzzle concepts along the way. I wish it would have provided more of a challenge over its 35 free logic levels, but if you want the hundreds of more difficult puzzles (or the ability to make your own levels) then you’ll have to snag it for Android or iOS.

Add in soothing music that’s reminiscent of the “Love On A Real Train” song from Risky Business — and fun contrasts of bold colors — and it makes this game the evil twin of Paint By Numbers. You can play Huebrix here on Newgrounds.
