Monument Valley changed the face of interactive puzzlers almost overnight. It is a game that relies heavily on our perception of reality and strives to deceive our mind with visuals that are physically impossible. However, one twist here and another one there and somehow all the pieces seem to fall into place even though physics is screaming in your ears saying that it’s not possible. That’s the beauty of the game, and therefore, it has managed to make quite a name for it over the years and has also influenced a bunch of clones.
However, the game is extremely short and once you complete it, you will be left with a void that is extremely hard to fill. Hence, I went around doing some research and found out some pretty decent titles that actually live up to the experience of this incredible game. So, here is the list of video games similar to Monument Valley that are our recommendations. You can play these games like Monument Valley on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Android, mac or even online.
11. Starman: Tale of Light (2017)
‘Starman’ is an interactive puzzle game developed and published by Nada Studios for the mobile gaming devices. The gameplay is pretty similar to ‘Monument Valley’ where you need to solve puzzles one after the other in order to progress through the game. However, there are no optical illusions in this case. It is a game of light and shadows. Architecture plays a very important role here as all the illusions are based on it. The art direction and style of the game are also very similar to that of ‘Monument Valley’, so fans of the game will definitely be able to connect to this one.
You are in control of a character who needs to traverse through the levels restoring light. The world that he belongs to has been stolen of their luminescence and you need to unlock the secrets through solving puzzles that restore the light back to the world. This is one game you should definitely play if you like interactive puzzlers such as ‘Monument Valley’ as the setting and level designs for both the games are pretty similar.
