Monument Valley 2 is very much similar to the first game with the added complexity of having to guide two characters instead of just one. Ro, our protagonist in Monument Valley 2 is a mother to a mischievous child who joins her for yet another adventure through the surreal world of Monument Valley 2. Just as we led princess Ida through a surreal isometric world laden with puzzles and artefacts, we are now tasked with the added complexity of manipulating two characters through a mesmerising farrago of even more intriguing puzzles.
Just like the previous game, even Monument Valley 2 feels a bit too short, especially given that it costs Rs.400. However, we can see how building levels for a game of this calibre can be quite demanding. The price almost feels appropriate with 14 levels instead of the 10 that the previous title had, however, we’d have liked a couple more. Not just to make the price justified but such gems are hard to come by and we’d like to have more of such original IPs. Given how the entire mobile app industry revolves around building skin jobs, Monument Valley 2 should be put on a pedestal and showcased as an example of what other developers should aspire towards. Monument Valley 2, in our eyes, is the quintessential ‘Sharmaji ka beta’.
It’s not just the impressive visuals but even the ambient music that plays in the background as you go about your adventure melds beautifully with the entire experience. The gameplay though visually rich isn’t difficult. In fact, aside from one level in the entire game, we hardly faced any difficulties through our run. We’d have preferred a few additional levels which would have posed a proper challenge since this is a puzzle game after all.
Monument Valley 2 is a must play title in our books. It may be a bit too short and expensive compared to mindless skin-jobs but it’s definitely worth the money.
