Monument Valley for Android

Stop what you're doing and watch this. Then download Monument Valley. It's long been a popular puzzle game on iOS, and it's now available on Android for $3.99. It'a all about look at feel. You guide Princess Ida through the impossible, M.C. Escher-type geometry, hitting buttons and turning shapes as needed. It tests your brain, for sure, but it's not so tough that you'll want to throw your phone or tablet against the wall.

You'll want to look for visual clues, as well. Some shapes slide. Others turn. You'll get a feel for it as the game goes on.

(For an even better experience, throw on some headphones, or fire up an HTC One, if you've got one.)

After even just a couple minutes, you'll quickly realize how good a game this is. Period.

One quick word of warning: The Unity engine that runs Monument Valley isn't fully compatible with the ART runtime. So if you're seeing crashes or other wonk and you're on ART, that's why.

Played this on iPhone before I switched back to Android a few weeks ago. It's so good. Definitely worth the price. GET THIS GAME PEOPLE.

I wish purchases were cross-platform. Really don't wanna spend another $4 after buying it on iOS.

hopefully they get the ART issues resolved, because I don't have any issues with any of my current apps running on ART and would hate to have to switch back now.

Hah! I literally just finished this last night on my iPad mini. Glad it's coming to Android - it's such a beautiful game and a fantastic mental puzzle!

I really enjoyed Echochrome on the PSP, and that was a big motivation for me to get this game when it's finally been released on Android.

Bought it this AM, great puzzle game. A solid 1-1.25 hours of gameplay for the seasoned puzzle gamer. Not sure if its worth the full $4 compared to some other games, but I think it was a very nice experience.
