Zen stones is one of those simple to play yet challenging puzzle games you would love to spare some time with your iPhone. The game is pretty straight forward. In just two taps you are ready to take the challenging puzzles of the game while you advance to higher levels and earn high scores. In the game you solve the puzzles by making combination of 3 or more similar colored zen stones with the help of new stones that can be dragged out of the adjacent walls on all the four sides of the central play area.
The game comes with a wide variety of bonuses that make it really exciting as well as help you get through a level you are stuck at. Also there’s an undo button that can be useful when you make a wrong move or tap elsewhere by mistake that has probability of occurrence with a comparatively small screen of iPhone than iPad’s. The game needs some more screen estate when considering the ease to use the controls despite their responsive nature and well designed gameplay area.
The scoring system offers more points for larger combinations and thus apart from just clearing levels you also have a challenge to beat your own high scores. Clearing the levels also adds to your score besides being able to score them from clearing zen stones off the board. The game unfortunately lacks a social gaming platform or another means to share or save your score. But as long as you love enjoying challenges over bragging your scores this would hardly make a difference. The details about the gameplay, scoring and bonuses are provided within the game rules section to help gamers quickly start with a game without any confusion.
Overall Zen Stones is a wonderful game for anyone who is bored of the old style puzzle games available in the app store but loves taking challenges in a new way and interesting way.
