Description

The land of the Oübas, a peaceful race of strange multicolored creatures, is devastated by the powerful red wizard Garouba. The inhabitants are imprisoned on cages by the evil sorcerer, and must be liberated to reconstruct their home and bring it back to its former glory.

Oüba: The Great Journey is a tile-matching game, where the objective is to release the Oübas by making horizontal or vertical matches of three or more bricks of the same color, within a time limit. In the main game screen, the Oüba prisoners stand on top of columns made of multicolored bricks. They can only escape when touching the ground, after the removal of all the columns tiles with matches. The bricks can switch position with adjacent tiles and be moved in this way to any part of the grid. Garouba keeps adding new brick rows every few seconds, pushing the pile upwards. If any Oüba dies squished at the top, the game is over.

Power-up tiles appear randomly in the pile, and are activated by making adjacent matches. The bomb, marked with a radioactive sign, explodes tiles that are touching it. The row bomb, with two arrows pointing to opposite directions, removes six tiles horizontally. The column bomb, showing two arrows pointing up and down, eliminates 6 tiles vertically. The shuffle, indicated by two arrows in a circle, changes the position of all tiles. The rainbow bomb acts as a wildcard and can match any color. The color bomb blows up all tiles that share its color. The flattener reorganizes the pile in straight lines. The freeze tile prevents the addition of new rows for a few seconds. The hammer tile breaks individual blocks. The slow tile decreases Garouba's speed, making him less efficient in putting new tiles to the pile. The Oüba shuffle moves all the prisoners to the lower empty columns.
