Play OverviewPlay Overview

Zen Bound (2009) is a puzzle game about wrapping objects in rope. With a relaxing soundtrack and calm visuals you are present with different objects with an attached rope of a specific length. Using a mouse, touch or tilt controls you transfer paint from the rope to the object. It's a simple spatial puzzle, but one that needs forethought.

The challenge is getting the required percentage of an object painted with only a finite length of rope. There are three targets in each level - minimum, medium and maximum coverage. Some levels require nails protruding from the objects to be entwined in rope rather than having to cover the object's surface.

Unlike other games that up the tension, Zen Bound's down-tempo style turns the challenge into a meditative process. "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."

Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Zen Bound 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 2 years ago.
