The Game Play:

Coming back to the game; along your way while playing this exciting game you will have to face the black beaked wild creatures, the evil Rooks who will block your way and whom will have to trap within the impossible shapes in order to progress. In the game of unexpected creatures design to amuse you and make it more interesting you will meet a few other characters i.e. ‘Totem’, an old friend who helps you reach the high ledges and elf spirits who will question your aims and give a subtle yet heartwarming plot. The game has a bit complex levels to keep you indulged with the soothing play backed sound and a spooky storyline.


Monument Valley is a beauty among the well-known puzzles themselves, where you have great controls to navigate your character. It has several rules: firstly; there isn’t any such move or attempt while solving the puzzle that takes you to dead end. Simply meaning, there isn’t any “Game Over!” situations to sadden you. Secondly; each chapter (i.e. the game being divided into 10chapters) introduces little concepts, polishes your mind and then it is over in about 20minutes. This prevents the concepts from being doubled and confusing you in any case and the best part; you never feel the game being repeated, while not being so context-driven that you cannot finish a chapter in a session which would lead the game overstaying its welcome in a mobile environment.

The game is designed straight and has narrow paths you go through whilst playing it. As soon as you reach the end of the path, the game prompts you to tap and hold on the gear. Once you do that, you can rotate the connecting piece of the stage and by doing so it will open up different ways to explore the area. As you rotate the block, a part of the level separates from one part and connects to another, hence creating a new path and then you can walk through it and get to the next level of the chapter. The style of the gameplay is peculiar and is resonant of Fez, Sworcery,  Sword and more.

The Art-Style:

The Monument Valley has induced the beautiful art of M.C. Escher, Japanese woodblock prints and the spiritual temple architecture from around the world. The game has pleasant music to the best sound effects that are timed just the very appropriate, that shows the developers kept in mind all age humans to provide the best entertainment. As a result the 3D visuals in the game are worth spending your free time playing it and enjoying to the very best.


The art defined here is very different from all other puzzle games and the realistic style graphics we see in our PC games and consoles. There are many games available in Google Play Store for Androids that have other style in their game but Monument Valley has simplistic and minimalistic art style which is very different from other puzzle games.
