    What was a wonderfully intuitive and thoroughly relaxing process on iOS (especially the iPad version) is a bit more of a challenge when you reduce it to mouse control, though.

    Zen Bound 2 was an excellent game for the iPad and iPhone. While it's certainly a worthwhile chill-out for your PC or Mac, I'm sorry that the magic of it is slightly lost in the translation.

    I can hardly imagine it's better on the iPad. To me, the gameplay isn't challenging nor stimulating enough to warrant a high score. This gameI can hardly imagine it's better on the iPad. To me, the gameplay isn't challenging nor stimulating enough to warrant a high score. This game is more diversion than challenge, and that can be fine, it would just have been nice to expand the concept and give the player a choice between diversion and challenge. The level selection screen shows a tree with hanging lamps and cards on it. You pick a card, representing a level, and try to get full points in order to accumulate enough to unlock more levels. Each level is a tree figure of things like toys and animals. The gameplay consists of your turning the figure so a paint rope covers the whole figure with paint. The difficulty curve rises very slowly if at all, so there's not much reason to want new levels, if not to see more tree figures. It will probably be as exciting as that sounds to you. Collapse

    This barely qualifies as a game to me and I'm pretty critical of "non-games" that are sold as such. The game play consists of wrappingThis barely qualifies as a game to me and I'm pretty critical of "non-games" that are sold as such. The game play consists of wrapping various objects in a rope by manipulating the object with the mouse. Unfortunately, the main challenge in the game is controlling the wild swings of the mouse with any precision. It's not zen, it's not relaxing. It's a glorified mouse training tool. Then there's some world music in the background. Cue finger twirling. Just glad I got this in a humble bundle. Expand
