Monument Valley 2
This is the sequel to the prestigious game that dazzled millions of users thanks to its particular aesthetics and puzzles, which make an intelligent use of perspective. Monument Valley 2 repeats the scheme of his predecessor, with new levels, optical illusions and a protagonism divided between two new characters: Ro and his son.
A Normal Lost Phone
One of the most original mobile games of recent years, and which are already coming out all kinds of clones. The proposal is simple: we have found a phone, and we can investigate the various applications (emails, camera, etc.) to discover the history of its owner. It’s a simple game that will not take you more than an hour or two to complete, but your proposal (and its “story”) are so interesting, it’s worth it.
Kalimba is a platformer that uses color to shape puzzles as visually appealing as challenging. Each “monigote” is resistant to the color it represents, which forces us to alternate between them to overcome the different zones of the phases. At first, it may seem simple, but little by little the thing gets complicated with the introduction of new characters and situations.
The proposal is simple: an infinite board of three squares and the possibility to move to left or right. Of course, the board is full of traps, treasures, and enemies, and each type of character has different abilities that can be improved in the purest RPG style (for example, the ninja may retreat, throw shurikens or kill enemies in quick succession). It’s those games that at first seem silly … But when you want to give an account you will be hopelessly hooked.
Death Road to Canada
A Zombie Survival iOS game with a lot of sense of humor, where we control a group of characters who have to survive the apocalypse by collecting resources, making decisions, saving dogs and, of course, crushing undead. Each game is developed in a completely random, and if we join the great variety of characters, situations, and objects, we have game for a while.
Old Man’s Journey
At Old Man’s Journey, our mission is to help an old man advance. To do this, we must “create” a safe path, modifying the terrain with simple pulsations. The proposal is simple and the puzzles are not too complicated, but there are two aspects that make this title stand out above others: its aesthetic, which makes us feel as if we were inside a painting, and its moving story. Did you think that mobile games are not capable of thrill? Play Old Man’s Journey and check it out for yourself.

FRAMED 2 follows the scheme of the first FRAMED, that is: a detective story of noir aesthetic told to comic style. The grace, and what makes it so special, is that we have control over the vignettes, being able to move them to obtain different results that alter the history, resulting in one of the most original puzzles games of the last years.
