Ratings and Reviews
Mesmerizing from start to finish, Monument Valley offers a world of uncanny beauty and constant wonder. To help a princess proceed on her mysterious quest, you’ll face ingenious puzzles that involve lifting and spinning the environment in seemingly impossible ways. It’s a mind-bending journey filled with the joy of discovery, making Ustwo’s adventure a must-play for gamers of every experience level.
Ruined by the “story”
I have two issues with this game. The first is the puzzles. The individual elements, primarily the illusion aspect, are incredible but the puzzles as a whole were lacking. There was rarely any confusion about what to do next. I almost always knew where to move, what slider to slide, or what handle to twist. In addition, the puzzles are short up until the couple puzzles resulting in this game lasting me just over an hour.
The second issue I have with this game is the “story”. The story feels like it was created by a 4 year old. The player is some random girl who trespasses on a long dead civilization’s and is gonna get turned into a wingless crow person. Surprise! A few puzzles later she is turned into a bird with a crown and the crow people turn colorful, gain wings, and follow her without any explanation about how she got from point A to point B.
Admittedly, puzzle game aren’t meant to have any decent or important story, but this game takes their terrible story, makes it the central focus of the game, and conveys it in brief poems. Poems that are disjoint and conflict with each other but take themselves seriously. Like the 4 year Old also is inexplicably an decent poet. He has the ability to write poetry but lacks the mental maturity to make it understandable.
Brilliant puzzle elements, disappointing puzzles, and terrible story that is poorly conveyed, and makes itself seem like the most important part of the game.
Good but needs more game play
I just need to say it a great game. You all put great effort into it. I need to say it again it’s a great game, but (there is all ways a but) five dollars for a game with only ten level. Unless you count that level in the extras which feels like 6 levels. Also I know there is a second game, but five dollars for this game that’s insane. Two dollars understandable but four dollars no way. I do know that I can buy eight more levels for two dollars which in total that is nineteen level for seven dollars. Don’t think I don’t like this game it’s a great game as I said. I can tell it looks like a hard game to make so its understandable why there is very little levels. If you are reading this review I would not mind you getting this game. Just don’t be surprised that you finished this the game In one day like me. Also I don’t have the second game so if the second one is longer then the first that would be great. So if I was you I would get the game if you like puzzle game.(Yes this is a puzzle game if you couldn’t tell) It’s a very fun game so enjoy if you do get it.
