Unwind with Zenses Rainforest

I recently had the privilege of reviewing Zenses Ocean and hosting a giveaway for this amazing, serene game. If you missed it, or entered but didn't win, now is your chance to get in on the relaxation with Zenses Rainforest.



Zenses Rainforest takes you away to a tropical paradise. You can explore the Amazon while playing games "infused with rain drops, exotic flowers, waterfalls and giant trees."
"Immerse yourself in Zenses while challenging the mind, body and spirit through relaxing puzzle and brain training games, soothing ambient sounds and authentic visuals that highlight the earth's natural wonders and beauty."

There are six, fun puzzles you can choose from: Treasure Spin, Stack Jack, Twist-'n-Turn, Flower Board, Sapphire Wheel and Solitaire.



My favorite of all the puzzles is Sapphire Wheel. The brightly colored gems are eye-catching and it's fun trying to strategically fit the geometric pieces into each space.

Zenses Rainforest comes with the following features and highlights:
  • Allows players to escape from the stress of daily life while challenging the mind, body and spirit through relaxing puzzle games, soothing ambient sounds and authentic rainforest and oceanic visuals.
  • Designed for casual play – whether it’s for three minutes or for a three-hour escape – and offers a collection of six easy to pick up, yet addictive puzzle/brain games that are as fun as they are challenging.
  • A clean, fresh and “spa-like” interface and highlights the earth’s natural wonders and beauty.
  • A pleasant mixture of 2D and 3D. Zenses is controlled using the stylus only. Not a single key press is necessary.
  • Includes a high-quality, ambient soundtrack. Music from the game can be downloaded for free. Just click here and go to "Music Download."
Here are the specs for the game:
