Have you ever played one of those games that bend and twist normal physics? Regardless, you should play Monument Valley, developed by Ustwo on iOS and Android devices. It’s strangely addicting enough to make time itself vanish, with all its levels that are made up entirely of different puzzles. Basically you take the main character the Silent Princess Ida and get her from point A to point B. Sounds simple right? Well it is not. Honestly, there is no good way to describe this game till you have seen the trailer. So please check out the trailer below and see for yourself just what you can experience in Monument Valley.
So as you saw, the levels twist, turn, and make the impossible possible. What is on the first floor is now connected to the second floor, while making them all look like it is all on the same plain. This is just part of its charm; this game takes you on a little adventure with Ida, but don’t worry I won’t spoil that for you. The color scheme just pulls gamers in and immerses them in the world of Monument Valley. The mind breaking puzzles, wonderful adventure, and amazing color scheme is what can make you lose track of the real world and just fall in love with this game.
