Zen Puzzle Garden is an interesting puzzler from Lexaloffle Games, developer of Neko Puzzle and a regular Ludum Dare competition participant. Don't let the serene setting mislead you, this is one tough puzzler that will have you tearing your hair out at times.

The plot goes a little like this. You're presented with sixty-four gardens to rake with your trusty tool, but there's a twist or two. To begin with, you can't rake over the same spot twice and leaves can only be collected in a particular order. The monk will not stop moving in one direction once he steps onto the sand unless he comes across an obstacle. There's a handy restart key should you find yourself stuck with no way out.
