According to the Press Release:
Monument Valley is a surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry. Guide the silent Princess Ida through mysterious monuments, uncovering hidden paths, taking advantage of optical illusions and outsmarting the enigmatic Crow People.
Inspired by the art of M.C. Escher, Japanese prints and minimalist 3D design, each level is a unique, hand-crafted combination of puzzle, graphic design and architecture. Like listening to an album or walking through a museum for the first time, Monument Valley is about discovery, perception and meaningful beauty.
Monument Valley is the newest adventure from ustwogames, creators of Whale Trail and Blip Blup.
Monument Valley is available for $3.99/£2.49 from the App Store on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch or at; www.AppStore.com/MonumentValley.
Geeks, artists, futurists, and fans of sacred geometry are going to love this game.
