Monument Valley and Monument Valley 2 are puzzle mazes made from optical illusions. You interact with each level to change the pathway and get your character to the exit. Its striking, calm visual theme is used to build atmosphere and slowly reveal a moving story about parenting, independence, getting lost and the bittersweet inevitability of children growing up.

This game has been rated ESRB EVERYONE.

Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 5+ year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. One family told us. "It surprised me how much my 5-year-old adores Monument Valley. I expected the puzzles to be way beyond him but apparently not! Mostly he played by himself, but then from time to time he'd come and ask me about one he was stuck on, or he had a few little moments of delight that he wanted to come and show me or tell me about. He also quite enjoys Alto's Adventure/Oddysey but finds them a bit trickier."
