Monument Valley

(Update: As of May 14, Monument Valley is available on Android!)

JohnBMonument Valley is a creative puzzle game that looks like something Wonderputt developer Reece Millidge would create and plays like Echochrome (or BOXGAME, if you like), even though it's made by ustwo, the developer of Whale Trail. Set in a surreal world of shapes and tricky perspectives, you control Ida as she ventures from level to level, walking on walls and twisting platforms as she tries to figure out where she's at and what the heck is going on in this dreamlike world.

Monument ValleyAll you have to do in Monument Valley is tap to send Ida walking along the path. Drag and twist blocks to move them around, altering the landscape so she can get from point A to point B. Here's the catch, though: Monument Valley isn't about realistic depth or direction, it's about perspective. If a block looks like it's touching another block, it is, even if the 3D logical side of your brain says it's above or in front. Sometimes you'll turn the same block a few times to move across an entire level, even though that "shouldn't" be possible!

Monument Valley more about the puzzles than the story, but it still feels like an adventure game. One that takes place in the most bizarre Arabian Nights tale you could imagine. There's a great sense of awe as you explore the stages, both in terms of the gameplay and the mysterious characters you'll encounter. Monument Valley is simple enough to immediately understand, but it provides enough wonder and amazement for hours on end.

As I don't have an iDevice I can't play this, but what's funny is that the second I saw the screenshot, I thought Wonderputt 2. And the description of the game certainly takes the mind to the first Echochrome game.

Achingly beautiful, but also achingly short, Monument Valley manages to retain its magic even on third playthrough, something many other atmospheric experiences have failed to achieve (Year Walk, Room 1&2).

Chapter 4 was when this game really hit home for me; after I completed it, I really knew I was going to love this game.

Chapter 8 was also a magical experience, but it was a bit too simple puzzle-wise.

My least favorite chapter was 7, as it was a bit repetitive and didn't really introduce anything new... or maybe I was just feeling a bit sad after

The Totem tried to come with Ida

A relaxing, and quiet game with surprising emotional strength, even with minimal story.

A must-play for all people who enjoyed The Room, Year Walk, or Kairo. 4.5/5

Kinda like Perspective. (Dunno if JayisGames has reviewed it) You're this strange blue crystal character and also the camera, and have to move around rooms to the exit. Where you can move is dictated by where the camera is.

Jeff, what you linked to isn't the game that Leopardmask was talking about. It has the same name, but he was referring to a different game, one that was featured in Weekend Download long ago.

Just a suggestion, when you guys are writing these articles, it would be great if you could include weather or not the app costs money or is free. I know you can just click the link to the app store, but by the time I get to the bottom of the article, I already want the game, then I'm disappointed when I find it isn't free. Thanks!

That's just the message that comes up when I go to download it. I have an iPhone 3GS, so even if it doesn't require a gyroscope, Apple's just trying to give me the hint that they'd like me to upgrade soon.

Whoo, working on a walkthrough for new levels! May be a couple of days away though.

The new levels are every bit as terrific as I'd hoped...no, they're terrific-er.

Sadly, there'a a thing where some people are actually reducing their App Store ratings from 5 stars to 1 because the new levels aren't free. It's a $1.99 IAP for seven levels, vs $3.99 for the original ten.

Gotta admit, I kinda want to smack these people, or at least ask them what they were doing giving the game a 5-star review in the first place if they didn't think they'd gotten their price of a coffee's worth.

Yup, I loved the new levels too, with new twists (some literal) on the pre-existing game mechanics. Although, I do see a lot of missed potential with the possibility of much more complex puzzles.

Oh, and there's a very very very bad glitch about running water displaying properly on rotatable objects. UsTwoGames, if you're listening, please check this out!

And yeah, the hate for the IAP is really sad. Guys, these people have worked hard on making a beautiful and original game for you. People seem to have no trouble with getting a free app and spending >$15 on in-game currency and giving a glowing five star review for it's unoriginal IAP reliant gameplay. Why should $2 for something that is worth far more than that suddenly cause so much rage? Just think of how much effort has been put into this game. If you've never done programming or graphic design before, triple the effort that you estimated. Now think of how hard you worked for $2. Stop the hate, seriously.

Ha, you mean the glitch where it looks like the water is going partway through the waterwheel blades? I hadn't noticed that until you mentioned it, but now that I do, it's actually sort of hypnotic. 8)
