Get Monument Valley On Thursday

On Thursday, Get Monument Valley

It's been a rough few weeks for mobile gaming, with stuff like ratings scams and cloning scandals sapping people's faith in the platform to delivery quality content.

How nice it is, then, to sit down and play Monument Valley.

I got the game on iPad last night, and haven't been able to put it down. A seemingly simple puzzle game, it's got a lot in common with echocrome, in that you're manipulating the stage to create optical illusions that allows you character to traverse pathways that they really shouldn't be able to.

But good Lord, it looks and sounds amazing. It's a puzzle game, yes, but it's never frustrating or tense. Indeed, it's one of the most relaxing iOS games I've ever had the pleasure of playing, thanks to its soothing soundtrack and beautiful levels.

It's out on Thursday for the iPad and iPhone.

    Isn't this basically a colourful version of Echo Chrome?

    Monument Valley is a very nice looking game and that is all.
    The beautiful sounds, they suffer from distortion,
    The levels are very nice, however there aren't enough to argue its price tag,
    As for not being able to put it down, it took an hour to complete, I would only open it again to show a friend the trippy nature of level 8.
