Tremendous iOS puzzle game Monument Valley has just gone free on iOS for the first time in its history.

Inspired by the surrealistic designs of M.C. Escher, the title is a triumph of isometric design, in which the player guides a princess through a series of impossible structures in a game that Apple lyrically described as, “akin to a walk through a museum or listening to a music album.”

Seriously, download it now.

I’m a massive fan of Monument Valley, as you can gather from the exclusive “making of” feature I wrote shortly after its release.

Since then, the game picked Apple’s Design Awards at last year’s WWDC, and — most recently — got an upgrade optimizing it for the 12.9-inch gorgeousity of the iPad Pro.

Check out the trailer below.

Monument Valley was also a bargain at $3.99, but with its price tag slashed to zero, there’s absolutely no reason why this game shouldn’t be occupying your time for the remainder of the week. At least.
