This Fantastic Game Is Free On iOS And Android Right Now
Numerous mobile games are free right now to promote social distancing, including a critically acclaimed puzzle game that normally goes for $5.
Over the past couple of weeks, a bunch of publishers have been giving away free games to help keep people occupied while social distancing. While most of the current freebies are for PC, there are a handful of great mobile games up for grabs, too, including one of the very best puzzle games in recent years: Monument Valley 2. Normally selling for $5, Monument Valley 2 is completely free right now on iOS and Android. Developer Ustwo Games announced the promotion with an adorable video clip and message to fans on Twitter.
There are times when we just need a hug. So here is a virtual one from us… We’ve made Monument Valley 2 free on the App store and Google Play for a little while!— ustwo games (@ustwogames) March 27, 2020
A sequel to the 2014 breakout hit, Monument Valley 2 has a wealth of excellent maze puzzles that play with your senses thanks to optical illusions and seemingly insurmountable obstacles. It also has a greater emphasis on narrative than its predecessor. In Monument Valley 2, you control Ro and her young child on a journey about personal growth and the sacred bond between mother and daughter.
You don't need to play the first game to enjoy and appreciate Monument Valley 2. Though the subtle ways the two games connect are more poignant if you have knowledge of the original, the maze puzzles themselves are enough to recommend Monument Valley 2. Plus, you can't beat free.
Monument Valley 2 is just one of a handful of iOS and Android games that are currently free right now. If you're looking for more free games to the pass the time this weekend, we've rounded up every free game across all platforms.
