The game is an absolute wonder to experience, as intriguing as it is visually appealing. In a market where games are saturated in vibrant primaries, Monument Valley offers a variety of clean, elegant palettes from beginning to end. The game’s levels have been compared to M.C. Escher’s artwork, including a chapter in which you essentially recreate Escher’s “Waterfall.” As you manipulate the architecture in each chapter, one continuously marvels at the simple genius the designers created through perspective paradox.
Monument Valley’s visual elements are strong enough to stand on their own, but the team at UsTwo intertwined thoughtful design details with a wonderful story, intuitive gameplay, and an atmospheric soundtrack.
