Very "Zen"

As a game, PixelJunk Eden is not particularly taxing or stressful. Quite the opposite, actually. There are almost no usual game UI elements in view, there is no rush to the objective and there is no need of a particular pace. You can just bounce away in the calm landscape and see how far or high you can get. Its very relaxing how the controlled character sticks into "grass" and it bends under the weight. The music suits the game perfectly, giving the feeling of being in a different place and time.

Highly recommended for when you need to calm down or release stress, A welcome addition to my game collection!

Relaxing experience

Is PixelJunk Eden really a game? Or maybe just a relaxing experience? It can be either, depending on what you want from it. PixelJunk Eden may be considered a simple platformer with relaxing art - both sound and visuals. There's not much gameplay in it and it doesn't feature complex physics, so typical for modern games. On the other hand it offers very enjoyable and relaxing experience, which will leave the feeling that the time was well spent and the game was worth its price. It's more on the casual side of things, not a hardcore gamer's thing. But if you have some spare money and want to relax while playing some pleasant game, this is a perfect choice for you.
