The Monument Valley game is a really beautiful game to play on your smartphone or tablet. If you’ve ever wondered what all the fuss was about with video games or just never found one that really caught your attention give this one a go. It’s beautiful, has great graphics, is sophisticated and challenging. But not so challenging that you give up after five minutes.
The game consists of a serious of puzzles that the lead character, a rather cute little princess (so great to have a female lead in such a mainstream game) has to solve. The sound effects are surprisingly good too and don’t grate even though you hear them throughout the game unless of course you turn the sound down. The game is almost meditational in its lyricism and fluidity.
Best of all, the Monument Valley game was made in the UK and won a Bafta for Best British Video game in 2015.
Go on, give it a go. You know you want to.
