Overview:
Zen Bound is a meditative game where your goal is wrap a finite length of rope around a (wooden or stone) object and thereby covering it in paint.

Choose a Tree (= A Collection of Levels)
While an important goal for each level is to cover one-hundred percent of the object's surface, the eager player can also focus on reducing the length of rope used to do so. Note however that a player earns one flower for seventy percent (also the minimum to complete a level), two flowers for eighty percent, and three flowers for ninety-nine percent. Earn flowers to unlock more levels, but earn 100% of all levels for an achievement.


Recommendation:
Zen Bound 2 is a great game for touch devices, but is also enjoyable with a mouse (or keyboard).

Then again, impatient players may not enjoy Zen Bound to the fullest, because achieving 100% on a level can require planning and patience.

With that being said, I love the game's aesthetics and I'm glad that I own the game.

20150214:
Today I completed the Tree of Vitality. I decided, however, not to focus on getting 100% on all it's levels.

Afterwards I also played a couple of levels from the Tree of Challenge, but I soon got bored and stopped.

After playing today, the following changes occurred:
[2] 30/36 Tree of Vitality (Completed)
[3] 14/36 Tree of Challenge

A nice level for unlocking the Pacifist Achievement.
