zb4Secret Exit's has released a major update to their award-winning Zen Bound [App Store] game tonight.

The biggest new features of the game is the addition of a 3rd tree of objects called "Nostalgia". The tree is divided into four thematic groups: Childhood, Old Days (1920s or so), 50s Sci-Fi and Retro Gaming.

A detailed list of new features is provided:

  • Tree of Nostalgia added (additional 25 levels)
  • Ability to hide in-game user-interface and play the game un-occluded
  • Smooth and continuous paint spread from rope
  • Rope interpenetration with objects reduced
  • Previous game result now displayed correctly
  • Level beginning says 'Play' instead of 'Continue if the save game had 0% coverage
  • Save game issues addressed
  • ...now wrap the "TouchArcade object"...

Ok, we added the last item on the list, but that's what we affectionately call the above object.

Zen Bound has also seen its first price drop to $2.99 (from $4.99). If you're still not convinced, you can still try the Lite version [link].

    So did Secret Exit add that object as a tribute to TA?

      Just a few lines of text up from your post it says:

      • …now wrap the "TouchArcade object"…

      • skamando

        Yeah, I read that. It could just be an object they took from another game, It's suspiciously similar to space invaders. I want to know if they legitimately put that in as a tribute to TA.

    • Imwithstupid

      No they didn't

    There really is no reason not to get this game. It is worth way, way more than its current price, and the new objects are spectacular.

    Still the greatest game on the App Store, I think.

    omg did they really make an object the same as the TA logo? It looks identical!

    • Imwithstupid

      no it's a space invaders logo, they wouldn't do this just to contribute to a iphone gaming website

      • http://www.secretexit.com Frand

        We wouldn't?

      • Imwithstupid

        Whoa never mind, if you really are the creator of the app

    plus isn't that copyright infringement? I'd rather think of it as the TA logo..

    • http://www.secretexit.com Frand

      I don't think seeing that object in Zen Bound should deter you from thinking of it as the TA logo :)

  • munkee

    Isn't TA logo a rip off of space invaders anyway?

    • larrybeo

      I don't think it's much of a rip off of a space invader - it IS a space invader!

    I don't see it as a ripoff of Space Invaders... more of a tip of the hat to a classic game.
    For $2.99 I couldn't resist upgrading from Lite and am really enjoying the game. I'm not a big shoot 'em up fan-- this relaxing, mental game is more my speed. Great work!

    The Nostalgia update is pretty cool. Haven't reached the Space Invader yet though. What level *is* that thing? I wanna wrap the Space Invader. :D

    This has totally gotten me back into Zen Bound. Not sure why, but the game kinda frustrated me the first time around. Am enjoying it much more this time.

    Cheers for the wicked-cool update guys!
