As you can see from the exclusive “making of” feature I wrote a few months back, I’m a massive fan of Monument Valley, the surrealistic M.C. Escher-inspired iOS puzzle game that rocked the App Store earlier this year.

A recent winner of Apple’s Design Awards at WWDC, Monument Valley is a triumph of isometric design, in which you guide a white-clad princess through a series of impossible structures in a game Apple describes as “akin to a walk through a museum or listening to a music album.”

While the game was already a bargain at $3.99, it’s just been the recipient of a slashed pricetag — meaning that you can now pick it up for the bargain price of $1.99.

If you haven’t played it before, check out the trailer below for a glimpse at what you’re missing. You can also check out lead designer Ken Wong’s pick of his five top iOS games here.

Monument Valley is available for download from the App Store for the majority of iOS devices running iOS 6.0 and above.
