Monument Valley is my favorite kind of game: quiet, simple, beautifully designed, flawlessly executed, and curiously engaging. Move a tiny, cute figure through a series of mazes and obstacles to progress through the levels. There are no directions; users just jump in and explore. If you want to see a beautiful example of artistry in app form, check out Monument Valley- you won't be sorry.
