      "If you are like me and you love relaxing and beautiful puzzle games then you are going to love Monument Valley. The maps are very colorful and engaging and you always get a different scenario that keeps you thinking from level to level. A lot of times you run into some repetition with puzzle games and it takes the fun out of it, but you are not going to have to worry about any of that with Monument Valley."

      "Monument Valley has a style like no other. This game is very relaxing. The soundscape is very zen-like. The game isn't too long, so you can play through the whole thing when you feel like getting away from it all for a while. I didn't find it too challenging for a puzzle game, but it's a very pleasant experience."

It takes a person to another reality to get away from our present realities Users review say it is a relaxing game. It requires thought vs action and timing packed stressful maneuvering 'AHHHHH, I don't want to diiiie!' crunch time. It also gives the user instant gratification. Daily work often does not and so why do more of THAT? The music is not annoying and has a friendly soundtrack which is very appealing. Quench your thirst for something different and go serene with the game of Quell. You will never be in game hell."

It seems to start off slow but as seen in the video it gets harder with pieces you can not move and with shapes that make the puzzle game hard. There are better relaxing puzzle games if you want something easier to play."
