Monument Valley 2 is out now on iPhone and iPad

There is no news yet on whether it will be available on Android.

The original was a delightful collage of brain teasers, quietude and visual elegance, and with so little of that happening in mainstream gaming, it's hard to imagine not succumbing to its charms all over again.
