Linn: Path of Orchards looks a lot like Monument Valley, but it's completely different - a creative, clever platformer that will keep you too busy leaping around instead of admiring how it looks.

But what do we know? We're just some fools running a website about mobile games. So we decided to give our community of mobile gaming fanatics, the App Army, their hands on the game as well.

You can read their reviews below, but we know what you really want - your own chance of getting the best and latest games for absolutely naught beyond giving us a review.

Well you can! Just join our App Army over on Facebook (make sure to answer the short questions given to you!) and each week you'll have a shot at playing a big game of that week.

And better yet, you can chat about mobile games with other fans of the platform, make some friends, and get some wonderful, stimulating conversation in your life.

Sound good? Then go join the App Army! And come right back to read the reviews of Linn: Path of Orchards!

This gorgeous looking game requires quite a lot of jumping, and by that I mean precise jumping. And truth be told, I hate that. It takes a lot of effort and quite a number of attempts to make further progress.

If you love platforming games more than puzzlers, you will certainly fall in love with Linn: Path of Orchards. The controls, which involve all-directional swiping for making dash moves and double jumps, are fairly tight and responsive. This is a level-based game and these are of a bite-sized single screen variety with 3 tasks to complete on each stage.

What I did not come to appreciate in Linn is that there is no way of getting all 3 stars on a level in a single try. You'll have to repeat the same stage at least 2 times to collect all regular shards, a big shiny one called "Elder Shard" and in doing so meet a quota in moves allowed.

Did I mention that the game looks stunningly good? Not as good as that eye candy of a minimalist game called Monument Valley, but to some extent Linn comes pretty close to it.
