At the WWDC Apple Developer Conference in 2017, Ustwo Games announced the “Monument Valley 2”. Then, Apple generously in the App Store home with more than a dozen recommended bits. you need to do things in this game, including control agencies, rotating perspective, and lead the protagonist out of the maze. However, these acts are in fact a serious violation of the real world of the laws of physics. They are able to “achieve”, to a large extent because of deceiving your vision.
For this reason, the “Monument Valley” is also known as “The Art of Impossible”. And this new work in the further show “impossible” charm, but also play on the level of enrichment.
Monument Valley 2 Game settings
“Monument Valley 2” The most obvious change is the use of a dual protagonist. They are a pair of mother and daughter, and sometimes separate action; sometimes in the same level of the different positions, need to cooperate with each other to unlock the organs; and sometimes they will stick together, you can Control the actions of both of them. This design makes the original linear level has become more layered, but also let me in the process of solving the puzzle need to take into account the status of multiple locations. Difficulty from the puzzle level point of view, this game compared with the previous show has made significant progress.
But this progress is only relatively speaking, if the “Monument Valley 2” into all the puzzle game for horizontal comparison, it is still the puzzle the most simple, the least depth of a game. Although the game is interspersed with a lot of deceptive trick, but the elements that make up the puzzle are inherently traditional: buttons, sliders, transfer points, and revolving valves. Coupled with the various puzzles involved in the number of organs are very limited, so even if there is no puzzle reasoning ability of people, as long as a little patience, you can in a very short period of time to try all the various organs after the combination of all Happening.
For the vast majority of puzzle games, too simple puzzles are easy to make people drowsy, and gradually lose the challenge of desire. But I do not think the “monument Valley” charm and value will be affected. Each of the game scenes is a funny art work, they seem to be perfect harmony and contrary to common sense, this contradictory feeling so that I have maintained a high degree of attention, no one moment felt tired. In this sense, the ornamental value of this work is far greater than its play value.
Simple composition, bright style, soft music … … in short, is used to cultivate sentiment, purify the mind of the good art work. In the narrative, this work in addition to the original works and the use of some secretive words on the end of each close, but also through the most direct performance to convey the mood and emotions.
Mother and daughter together in the debut of the level, the mother will take a mature and steady pace walking in front of the road, the daughter will stamp the brisk little brittle step by step, closely follow the mother behind. When the mother and daughter were separated by the organs, the mother’s head will always toward where her daughter, concerned and anxiously watching her every move. In the experience of a brief separation after repeated, the mother and daughter will come to a big hug, happy feelings of words. Later, the daughter needs to leave his mother set foot on his own way, the mother farewell in the dock, step by step overlooking the distance, overlooking the direction of her daughter to leave …
Every detail of the mother and daughter is so real and natural. Although these seemingly are inconspicuous little details, but I can not convey the amount of information is not less than hundreds of thousands of words less.
This for a total of 14 chapters, a little puzzle game experience players are basically able to within 1 and a half hours clearance. Considering that this work still does not contain any collection or other hidden elements, so in the game volume, content richness, and repeat the value of play, has a very obvious short board. Although it does not rule out the possibility of adding new levels through DLC after this game, it is still hard to imagine that it can be expanded to a normal puzzle game by DLC.
“Monument Valley 2” by introducing a dual protagonist, so that the game play has become more depth. In general, it is used to cultivate sentiment, purify the mind of the good.Tags: interesting game
