There's nothing else like Monument Valley on the App Store, and for that reason alone you should go and buy it right now.
It's an experience that's almost breathtakingly unique, rich with ideas, and wrapped around a story of change and friendship, exploration, and heartbreak.
The eureka moments that pepper each of the ten levels are always accompanied by a warm smile, and even though you'll finish everything within an hour or so, it's an experience that lingers in the very best way.
This is a uniquely tactile game that could only work on touchscreen devices, a rallying cry for better thought-out control systems, more unique ideas, and the sort of exploratory gaming that the App Store is desperate for.
A brilliant, breathtaking, and brief adventure, Monument Valley is every bit as good as it looks
