Wrap your way to bliss in Zen Bound 2, the unique down-tempo indie game! This is a different gaming experience: an opportunity to slow down, zone out and focus on a task that’s challenging but not stressful, a set of gentle puzzles for the mind and fingers to solve.

The goal of the game is to paint wooden sculptures by wrapping them in rope - a task that may sound simple but has surprising complexity. Each of the levels presents a spatial puzzle that becomes obvious through inspection. Some levels feature paint bombs that are helpful in covering complex areas of the object.

Zen Bound 2 is a calm and meditative gameplay experience, with tactile, dusty visuals and a sublime, enveloping soundtrack by the sensational electronic artist ‘Ghost Monkey’.

Key features:

  • Multi-touch controls for object manipulation on Macs with multi-touch trackpads
  • Over 100 levels
  • Multiple gameplay modes with paint bombs
  • 45-minute soundtrack from ‘Ghost Monkey’
  • Beautiful high definition visuals

Growing up, I had this cat.

She loved going outside, but was too wild to stay in the yard and out of traffic, so whenever she wanted to go out, we would hook her into a harness and let her roam the yard in that. My cat hated the harness, and as soon as it came out, she would turn into a puddle of fur, meat and disconnected bones that made threading her into the harness both an act of frustration and love.

Zen Bound 2 is a lot like that cat.

The object of the game is to wrap up an item with string, which places paint on the object. The objective is to completely cover each wooden effigy with paint. The main object in your arsenal is just to turn and rotate the item to slowly wrap it up, but the game includes nail bombs and paint bombs that also splash paint across the item. It's a simple enough premise in theory, and certainly something I had never come across before.

Perhaps it simply takes a certain type of person to appreciate this kind of game, but I found the puzzles in Zen Bound 2 frustrating me more than relaxing me, and the ambient sounds of rope pulling taut just made me go tense alongside it. I've seen other reviewers say it was soothing, though, so it all depends. The controls seemed tense and unforgiving to me, like I had little control over where the rope would fall, and what it stuck on or slid off of seems inconsistent.

You unlock new levels by covering a wide and delightful array of lovingly-rendered wooden figures, and each 'level' is represented by paper lanterns hanging from a tree. The aesthetic appeal of this game, with its clean and warm graphics, is undeniable, and even clever. I've only seen some of them so far, and look forward to unlocking the rest. The music is similarly Zen, very appropriate to the game.

I did encounter some freezing, stuttering, and long lag times, with items getting 'stuck' mid-turn and glitching out, along with the music and sound effects.

The fact that the game did not give me the experience I had expected doesn't mean I did not enjoy it, though, and find my own reasons to enjoy it. The game is challenging and maybe even punishing, as Perfection always is. There's more to this game than its claws.

Once you try this, you get bound to it.

I'd love to say it is relaxing, because it is to a certain point, but the truth is that some of the figures are... well...

can anyone help me finish Koncentration, please?

Anyway, the game is superb.
One of a kind.

Ironically, this game is pretty stressful to me. I can feel my shoulders tensing up as I play it. I have come back to this game on-and-off for probably a year, and nope, it's still not relaxing or particularly fun. While it is untimed and has pleasant sound and visuals, It doesn't control well. Maneuvering the objects feels harder than it should be, and when the rope "sticks" to an object, it's irritating to detach it. The gameplay just doesn't flow well. I can see this being better with smoother controls.

In Zen Bound you need to wrap ropes around objects. After a couple of objects it get repetitive. I didn't find it enjoyable.

In all honestly, I found it rather boring, never mind calming. After you've done a few it becomes uninteresting. I've played about 10 minuets of this game before uninstalling it.
