Monument Valley Review: It Only Takes An Hour To Change The World

Monument Valley came to Android a week ago after attracting roughly a million downloads on iOS in the one month since its release. That's no small number, but it doesn't take much time with the game to understand why (a good thing, considering just how little time you're going to spend playing it).

Escape The Mansion Is A Fun And Perplexing Game That Brings A Mixture Of Different Puzzles Under A Common Theme [Sponsored Post]
