Everything in this game comes together to deliver a memorable experience. In an odd, nebulous kind of way, Monument Valley reminds me of Journey in the sense that it draws you in to the point where the outside world almost doesn't exist - just like a really good book can do. Yes, it's all too brief, but to me its brilliance transcends its brevity. Regardless of length, it's a superb example of video gaming, and one that I think could well qualify as a piece of gaming art.
The game only features ten levels, with the first few serving to introduce the basic gameplay mechanics. Only the final levels hit a satisfying length and complexity, and then the game is over. That shouldn't detract indie fans from partaking in Monument Valley's wondrous journey, however, which has already landed on my short list for mobile game of the year.
Monument Valley is completely unique yet achieves what all conventional adventure games strive for; a mystical, bewildering adventure into the beautiful unknown.
