App description: Move the stones. Watch the minimalist Zen garden reshape itself. Solve the puzzles.

"Unquestionably, one of the best puzzle app games of 2013." - Tom Cutrofello,

In Zen Garden Puzzle there is no pressure: just play at your own pace and relax. No matter what you do, you will never be more than three moves away from the puzzle's only solution. But can you find those moves?

Your goal is to position one stone in every delimited area. That might not be as easy as it looks, because every time you move one stone, another one moves in the opposite direction.

Between puzzles, pause to meditate over words of wisdom and classic haiku poems.

As you become more experienced, you will advance through the Dan ranks and solve harder puzzles.

Stimulates logic, memory and concentration.
Endless: the solution of a puzzle is the starting point of a new one.
Procedurally generated music, different every time.
Automatically syncs progress across devices. No need for registration.
No ads, no in-app purchases.

User reviews:
"Deceptively subtle yet ingeniously deep. One that stands apart from the crowded App Store."
"Helps me relax while taxing my logical circuits. A contradiction? No, it has found the sweet spot."
"Simple rules with a simple goal, yet the puzzles can be fiendishly tricky. I'm loving this, and I bet you will too."

This is a really great game for people that enjoy logic puzzle games. A unique concept and a game that makes you proud to have figured out a level.

Game Impressions

I just discovered this after reading Nicola's non-trivial-gaming blog. This is easily one of the most elegant, enjoyable, and aesthetically pleasing games I've played in quite some time.

It's probably too late to make a difference, but the App Icon isn't terribly appealing - something more reflective of the actual gameplay (i.e. a 4x4 layout) would be an improvement IMO.
