Zenses

The winner is Sunday! Congratulations! Did you get what you wanted for Christmas? How about a new game for your Nintendo DS to top it all off! With all the holiday frenzy just barely behind us, couldn't we all use an escape?

Zenses is a newly published puzzle-type one-player game for Nintendo DS, rated E for Everyone. It has only been on the market since November. And, it's available in three languages: English, Spanish, and French.

Developer: Shin'en Multimedia
Publisher: The Game Factory

Zenses - Escape The World Around You

Zenses, active relaxation and the perfect "me time" companion, allows the player to transcend the stresses of everyday life, unplug and experience an "active escape." Zenses Ocean and Zenses Rainforest, the first two titles in the series, have a clean, fresh, and stylish look and a soundtrack that complements the calm and relaxing atmosphere. Zenses offers the modern woman a brand new and fresh experience.

Zenses – Ocean Edition

In Zenses Ocean, players relax themselves playing puzzle games inspired by the movements of the tide, rippling water, riffs and corals, beach vegetation and sea life. An indulgent, soothing experience, Zenses Ocean includes high quality visuals and ambient sounds inspired by the natural sounds of the sea. Subliminal addictive puzzles such as Hot Spot, Shell Twirl, Turtle Turn, Pearl Diver and Wave Breaker (names are currently being reviewed and may change) were created to give players an escape from the stress of every day life.

Zenses- Rainforest Edition

Zenses Rainforest allows players to explore the Amazon while playing games infused with rain drops, exotic flowers, waterfalls and giant trees. This refreshing experience encourages players to recharge their batteries while playing puzzle games such as Sapphire Wheel, Mirror Maze, Stack Jack and Bumble Breaker (names are currently being reviewed and may change).

Key Features & 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 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.

* Zenses will include a high-quality ambient soundtrack. All music from the game will be uploaded to http://www.gamefactorygames.com and will be available to download for free (players will be receive special bonuses holding codes to unlock).

You can buy one now for 29.99 online and at retailers nationwide including Amazon, Target, and Wal-Mart.

Or you can win BOTH games from me! One winner will receive Zenses Ocean and Zenses Rainforest for Nintendo DS. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post (include a way for me to reach you). Comments will close at 11:59 CST December 30, 2008. U. S. Addresses only, please.
