Remember “Monument Valley”? Perhaps you remember it as the game that Frank Underwood couldn’t stop playing on Netflix’s “House of Cards”? Or maybe you remember it as that gorgeous puzzle game you played years ago on your iPad?
Either way, it’s getting a sequel. Surprise: That sequel is out right now.
The game was announced as a surprise during Apple’s annual WWDC developer conference — it was the first game shown in a demonstration of Apple’s revamped App Store.
Here’s a look at the fantastical worlds of “Monument Valley 2”:
Looks abstract, no? It is! But the reality of playing “Monument Valley” is simple: You control a small character, and that character gets moved from one part of a puzzle world to another. Once you reach the end of that level, you move on to the next. Simple!
The twist in “Monument Valley” is in perspective. The puzzle worlds above are only being seen from one side, but they can be rotated. And that’s how “Monument Valley” plays with your mind and your perception, thus making it a simple-yet-complex (and delightful) experience.
Interested in playing “Monument Valley 2”? Of course you are! It’s available right now on the iTunes App Store, and it costs $US4.99. If it’s anything like the first game in the series, it’s worth that money for sure.
