If You Like Turning Knobs for the Act of Turning Knobs

Or... Monument Valley in Which no Surprises Lay in Store.

Monument Valley is really beautiful and controls well. Unfortunantly for me (and only me, since everyone else loves it), it's just a digital jack-in-the-box in an Escher-inspired setting. It requires little to no skills (cerebral, reflexes or otherwise), except rudimentary touch interface understanding, to complete. Some would say it's difficult to navigate it's areas, but the game is so linear that that is just plain false. I had a pretty little experience with it, but I wish there was game to go along with the design. Because that's what it is: a beautiful design object. The final level (of ten) required some thought, but no more than a little trial-and-error could negate. Honestly the app is beautiful, simple and lasts about 40-50 minutes. If that's what you want then it's great.

Oquonie is a beautiful, well-controlled, weird-structure (Go in from right, go out... another place). It requires thought to complete. Play that.
