If Hitman GO fell in love with Monument Valley and had a baby with it, Lara Croft GO would be the result.

It takes the same turn-based swipeyness of Hitman GO and throws it into the established world of Tomb Raider.

However, rather than from the board game, Lara Croft GO takes its gameplay inspirations from Monument Valley. That means you'll largely be solving puzzles and figuring out how to navigate the world.

That doesn't mean you won't be shooting enemies in the face with those trademark dual pistols. That's all still in there but this time you're doing it to clear a path rather than to save your life.

It's also absolutely gorgeous, displayed in a kind of cartoon or animated version of the Tomb Raider universe.

If you own an iOS device and fancy playing one of the best puzzlers to arrive on the platform this year, head on over to the App Store [download]. Lara Croft GO is also out on Android via Google Play [download].
