There's something uniquely beguiling about Monument Valley's twisty, architecturally impossible puzzling.

In fact the only complaint we had about the game in our review, where we gave it a Gold Award, was that it was a little on the short side.

Well, talking to The Guardian, ustwo director Neil McFarland has revealed that there are some new levels on the way.

"We are making some more levels, but the reasons we’re doing it are artistic reasons."

"There are some ideas that we didn’t get to work so didn’t put in there, but which we’d like to see work. There are some other things we’d like to try."

"The only thing is we presented a complete story in the game, which we don’t want to mess with, so what we don’t really know yet is how we’ll present new levels within that narrative."

"We don’t want to break it! But there are things we want to explore without destroying that experience."

McFarland also revealed that an Android version is on the way, and that ustwo is figuring out the best route to take to Google-powered devices. 

"That’s the next thing: to release it on Android and work out how we’d best do that."

On top of that, ustwo is also looking at possibly porting the successful puzzler, which recouped its development costs in just a week, to the PS Vita.
