Monument Valley Reviews

This game makes us shiver but we dont want to stop!! For some reason it gives us the creeps. It’s such a fun brain game where you have to get through hard moving pathways. ` we love it so much. It really gets your brain moving.

Way too short for a paid game.

Ok to start the game has really good graphics and we never experienced any lag but Im still beating it. If your looking for a puzzle game go with this it worth the price. Whats also convenient is there are no ads people say there are a lot of glitches but we have never experienced any (if there are any) they can just be hard to notice but all in all its the barest way to spend your time if you like being challlinged.

We want to play more of this games, please make more.

No violence, just logical thinking !!

In Monument Valley, you wander through a beautiful world of castles, sunsets and towers that seem to reach the moon. In this completely kid-friendly puzzle game, you have to be prepared to cast aside the most basic concepts, even those such as gravity. Some of these are so complex that we cant find the words to describe it. Heck, some of this stuff is SIMPLE the way it works, yet we still cannot give it a label. With stunning music, challenging puzzles, and a captivating storyline, this game has it all. Beautiful Monuments, skies, and a whole little world of wonder await you in Monument Valley. They could charge a full 10$ for this game, and we promise it would still be worth it. While the storyline itself takes some rather sophisticated comprehension skills to understand (though does any player REALLY understand the story?), kids with growing minds will benefit from the challenges presented by the puzzles anyway. And once youre able to comprehend the story, the game gets so much better. This one game, in our opinion, is the best of its genre so far. Anyone whos played this game will agree, it is truly an unforgettable experience.

Beautiful, calming atmosphere, but challenging enough to make it engaging. We just wish it were longer, and maybe had a hint system or something.

We love this game. It is so creative and it is fun. This a masterpiece. We find it somewhat like MC Eschers work, and we love it. We hope you make a Monument Valley 3!

We think you should add a level creator. This would make the game much more fun, and interesting. Bai.

We were seriously addicted to this game. BUT! It needs more levels. Please make more!!

This is a great game but the last level is the hardest we dont think its even possible its the infinite triangle thats impossible! But we really love it looks great lovely music so we think its 10/10 we’ve already restarted the game we like it so much.

Glad to revisit this series. The add on is as good as the originals. Id gladly pay to have a full 3rd Version. Still one of the most enjoyable games in the App Store. Monument Valley and all its versions are an excellent way to relax while working your mind in new ways.

We were recommended this by our psychiatrist,Ive had 3 brain surgeries and cranial radiation so we have some cognitive problems and memory issues so this has been a great homework assignment. And we have replayed it many times as we dont remember it very well then they added more.

When we got this game we just wanted an illusion but when we played it for the first time we were blown away by how the illusions go with game, would recommend.

The most beautiful app created! We ~never~ buy apps, but splurged on this one. It was absolutely worth the money. The best part is that it is fun and challenging to do over and over again. We just reset our progress when we finish the main game and Forgotten Shores. We only wish we had bought this sooner!

We absolutely fell in love with this game and Ida and Totem! Visually beautiful yet simple. Music is calming. Puzzles are challenging but not impossible. We were hoping for more levels but it was a very satisfying game. We did the solo game and also purchased the extra chapters. Story was a little vague but that kind of added to the mystique. LOVE this game (and MV2, too)!

We just discovered that we can purchase 8 more levels called forgotten shores. We are not sure why we never noticed that. It was fun It was 1.99 you can purchase it separately if you go to monument valley in the App Store you should see forgotten shores. You need to select that manually in the app to start that after you finish playing MV. Fun game. Like a puzzle Music is good too.

We stumbled upon this game, while looking for another game. We’re not much of a gamer, so take that into consideration when reading this. Most games don’t hold much interest for us since they are about battling or racing against a clock. If we get involved in a game, it has to be relaxing. This game is abundant in great design, a simple, yet mysterious narrative, and visually amazing problem solving, and a nice, ambient soundtrack. We love that it plays on the art of M.C. Escher (a learning opportunity when playing it with our 7 year old.) our son and we actually gasped at certain areas of discovery. We must underline the fact that ‘Ida’ doesn’t have to physically battle Bosses or have to keep repeating levels from being killed. Yes, we’re talking about you, factory robot! Our two sons, who are both typical gamers, think this game is awesome. We can’t wait to savor the additional add-on and Monument Valley 2.

This is an awesome game of tricks and illusions. It is definitely the kind of game we would finish in a day because it is so fun!!

READ IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND THE STORYLINE THIS. GAME. IS. AMAZING. We love this game and its amazing. Even though a lot of people dont understand the storyline. We for one, have an idea on it. Idas mother was queen of birds.(tomb in chapter 9 belongs to Idas mother) When she passed away, Ida inherited the throne. In one level, ida is called a thieving princess by a spirit. This is because Ida stole the sacred monuments. Because of that crime, Ida lost her title as queen of the birds. She wasnt the only one who suffered loss. The birds also lost their color and more importantly, their wings. The birds hated and blamed Ida. Thats why they would screech in her face and block her path in the game. The game is called A Quest For Forgiveness because Ida wants her former subjects to forgive her. If they dont forgive her, she will never rule again and her former subjects will be forced to be crows forever. She wants them to forgive her. To make them forgive her, she must return the monuments. When you finish the game, you watch a end scene where Ida and the crows stand together. There is a flash of light, and one crow stands there, WITH their COLORS AND WINGS. There are more flashes of light, and soon all of them are in the air. They have forgiven Ida. Ida lifts her arms into the air and a crown appears. Her crown. The moment it touches her head, she is in her original form:Queen of the birds. Ida and her subjects then fly away into the sky to start a new life. – And… BAM PEOPLES!!!!!!! GUYS,ROLL EM CREDITS credits totally start playing Developer if you are reading this please tell us if Im wrong about anything. We dont hold grudges as the person who typed this is only 10. Yes. Im 10 10 10 10 «{]THANK YOU FOR READING[/*}

We loved this game and its fun. We recommend monument valley 2.l also want you to make a monument valley 3.

This is one of the most enchanting games we’ve played. The graphics and art are outstanding and the story behind it leaves you in awe and the puzzles in the game serve no less. Even though it is a little short its about quality not quantity. Hands down the best game ever! (And dont forget to look at Monument Valley 2, It will not disappoint!)

Just like anyone else we love this game, our 7yr old autistic son loves both 1&2 he has completed them both. We wish there was more. Maybe start with the ghost, start from the very beginning, add more of a story to it, anything.

Even if the puzzles werent super difficult, we think the story really got across. If you are a super good puzzle-er and want really really hard puzzles, this might not be for you, but if you like story and not-so-challenging puzzles, this is a great game. Its all based on option at this point.

We loved this game so much. Its more than a game. Its a story, its an animated film, its an emotional art piece, its a soundtrack. We’ve never written an app review and we dont really know what else to say….. This lovely game is absolutely worth the money, as is the 8 level add-on and Monument Valley 2.

Im really in love with this game, we felt its shows how life goes on Im really glad that we saw and played this game .. We hope we get more chapters or apps with nice stories .. Thank you . BTW You deserve all the awards you got.

Great game but Ill decide if we need WiFi to update.

Thank you for creating such a gorgeous game! Its clever, beautiful and the optical illusions are so much fun! Thank you! We just love it! Amanda.

We loved monument 1 so the sequel should be good.

We’ve finished it twice and just redownloaded it for a third time. It is both beautiful and challenging. We cannot express how much we would recommend this game. It is peace. Spend the $3. You will not regret it. We promise.

We absolutely love this game. Love love love. We were disappointed the game was so short.

Beautiful puzzle to find your way through. So much fun to play, very relaxing sound track and really cool concept. Highly recommend for puzzle lovers.

A short but beautiful puzzle game with stunning sound design that we have played more times than we can count.

No mobile game we can think of has given us the experiences we had with this game. A must have for any individual looking for a great work of art and a great game.

This game is so beautiful and peaceful, makes you feel like youre really the one inside the game completing the quests. Incredibly designed and each level is an optical illusion with a beautiful and mysterious storyline. We play this at night to relax. Wish there were more levels. Worth the money.

Playing this game is like solving a Zen Koan while on Mushrooms. It may help you remember the path you took to get here, or the pathway home. Brilliant Craftsmanship and Design.

We love this game. We just finished Monument Valley 2. This time we savored each level. Thank you.

This game is clever and gorgeous. Id go as far to state that this is the best puzzle game for iOS. Others have described this game better than we could but we wanted to add our vote for this perfect game.

The Box is one of the levels. Its impossible cause you finish blue then green then yellow and go back to blue again! PLEASE FIX.

We like the game is nice Im happy our mom got the game for us :) not over priced takes up a lot of Storage:/

Really good game! We applaud the creators. We’ve played it over and over again and it never gets boring. We have completed games one and two and we want a third one so badly! This game was great beyond words and we would recommend it for any bored person out there looking for a good interactive story game.

We love the series. Its so beautiful to look at! The illusions? Very optical.

Visually mesmerizing. We love the mystery of each world. We could play this game for hours. Please please please make more!!!! We commend all who were part in the creation of this game, well done.
