ustwo games has released the long-awaited indie puzzle game Monument Valley 2 on Android. Players take the role of Ro as she teaches her daughter about the architectural mysteries of the game’s world. In practice that involves helping Ro complete the game’s visually rich levels by flipping switches, rotating platform, and more.
