Zen Bound 2 is an indie puzzle game developed by Secret Exit. It is a spiritual successor to the first Zen Bound.


The game features no plot whatsoever and focuses on the relaxing aspect of itself. The main objective of the game is to paint wooden sculptures using a rope to wrap them up. As the rope touches the sides of the object you are tying it around, they get painted. The players have to completely cover the sculpture with paint using as less rope as possible. There are three completion goals present in the game - minimum, medium, and max paint coverage. The players have to be careful, as the rope is not infinite and the players can run out of it if they use it irresponsibly.

Most of the game's sculptures resemble animals, birds, geometrical structures, or building components.

The developers call Zen Bound 2 a down-tempo experience, which puts a heavy emphasis on the ability for its players to calm down and focus only on the task that is rather challenging, yet is not stress-inducing.

For those who still want some challenge, the game offers a Challenge mode. Time limits are featured in this mode, which sometimes make your heart beat much faster. Challenging achievements are also present in the game, with most of them hidden to encourage at least some degree of exploration in the game.

Zen Bound 2 reviews and comments

A game that bears its name well... A very nice little puzzle game, accompanied by a relaxing soundtrack. The opposite of VVVVVV or SMB.

In this Game there is nothing wrong with good graphics and music (alla Oceans 11) good menue-leading and gameplay demanding but not exaggerated difficulty high motivation through varied Counter-stages and approach

Good achievement but for me the interest of this game is close to nothingness. This is to rotate a 3D object to the mouse so that a rope wraps around the nails that are planted there. I did this for one or two objects... and then I uninstalled the game.

It's a very nice Game for in between with great Challenge in the higher Levels, where one player or another Is brought safely on the Brink of Despair. The Game offers a very nice Atmosphere and a soothing And Asian melody in the Background.

Puzzle and bondage. What better way to relax a little? I particularly like the fact that this game is not policy and allows to choose an artistic way to fulfill the objectives. The music and the general atmosphere are very well cared for, and there is no competitive need to quickly unlock all the tables. A little regret, that we can not, in addition to the mouse, direct with the keyboard the orientation of the objects.

This is to wrap a rope around a wooden object in order to cover the largest possible surface the game perfectly fulfils the mission that is expected of it: to relax in a Zen atmosphere by reflecting. It's very pleasant. typically the game that is played just 15-30 minutes to relax between two moments of stress. After that, the principle is necessarily repetitive and the challenge is really present only if we try to surpass the 95% each time. But all this is always done quietly, peacefully. I do not find him a real flaw in his genre.

So I do not know whether it is Zen bound or Enerve bound... No kidding, well I confess that sometimes it titillates a little patience but I find this game quite nice. Certainly the music is relaxing. It takes a good half hour for the brain to assimilate and tell your hand which way to turn the thingy. But after that, it goes all alone ^ ^ the graphics are really pretty. In my first two hours I had a bug, the rope remained stuck in an angle, I obviously had to reset the level. To do all the levels, there are for quite a few hours. I had bought it for 1 or €2 at Christmas and there is enough to do before I finish it ^^ I find this game excellent for lovers of headache:) Good ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ me to all ^ ^
