    Spirits's review

    Published: 2012-10-05, by .

    Spirits is a well-crafted puzzle game that developed an original game concept

    • Soundtrack
    • Original gameplay
    • Needs more levels

    "Free your soul, go toward the light"

    Spirits are wandering the Earth not for scaring us but to find their way toward the light. However, that's a tough task: although they still have their skills, they don't know how to use them anymore. Spirits will need your ability to solve puzzles in order to guide them to the vortex and free their souls. Would you help them?

    Thus, the goal is to get spirits to the vortex. Spirits have different skills: grow, dig, blow, fast-forward and collect plants. Use them to avoid obstacles, climb walls and jump spikes. In each level, there's a minimum goal of spirits that have to get the whirl. This means that you can only use the skills of some of them if you want to reach the level goal. Be efficient.

    Impossible finishing this review without mentioning graphics and soundtrack: the game is challenging, right, but there's no way to get stressed since its minimalist graphics and relaxing music ensures keeping you in a good mood. Gameplay is original, although it can remind Lemmings. Theme, spirits skills and game dynamics are different though.

    This version has no levels restrictions.

    "Art so beautiful it could have been lifted from a Miyazaki movie." –WIRED

    Autumn is coming. Leaves fall, and spirits rise from the fallen leaves to begin their journey home. You must guide them, without direct control, by changing how the wind blows or by rebuilding the ground. Each spirit can be sacrificed to perform one of four actions - build a bridge of leaves, create a blowing cloud, dig tunnels, or block wind currents in an area. Use your actions wisely or you will run out of spirits. In each level it's up to you to find your own creative solution on how to get the spirits to the goal.

    NEW FAST-FORWARD FEATURE! Hold the bottom left corner of the screen to fast-forward your Spirits on their way to the spiral. You asked - we listened!

    NOTE: We have received reports that Spirits doesn't run on some Android 6 models. Please try out Spirits Demo first if you are unsure.

    "Striking art and innovative gameplay"
    –The Escapist

    "Spirits is clever, challenging, and beautiful"

    "Spirits is an outstanding blend of puzzle and strategy"

    "The overall design -- graphics, animation, audio tracks -- as well as the whimsical element of soaring on the wind, really make this an enjoyable title to experience"

    "Gorgeous visuals; ambient music; solid level design"
    –Slide To Play

    "Where Spirits really innovates is in its look and feel. When the wind physics start to do their thing, the experience is pretty magical"
    –TUAW, Mike Schramm

    "Spirits is more than just a pretty face, as you'll utilize little creatures to build ladders, dig tunnels, or blow gusts of wind to get their counterparts to an exit. It's similar to what we've seen in Lemmings or Downstream Panic, but the use of wind and the diverse puzzles keep things fresh and interesting"

    "Relaxing, stunning, and simple will keep players coming back for more"

    "Visually, the game is gorgeous. Everything has a soft, ethereal vibe to it, particularly the soothing ambient music and the challenging (but not frustrating) level design"
    –The Mac Gamer

    "There is so much attention to detail in this game that once you have finished it you will want to play it all over again"

    I am unable to save my place and when I get to level 6 it asks for me to rate when I do or if I don't either way it stops the app and I go back to level one

    It's a good game but won't save progress. Contacted the company who said they can no longer fix bugs so it's not worth the risk to buy it

    Waste of money. Doesn't save progress of the game. Everytime you close it, it resets. Looks tiny on big res screens such as Galaxy S7.

    Doesn't save progress on android. Pretty useless unless you really like the first 5 levels.

    Love the game but save doesn't work. Abandoned by developers, last update was literally five years ago. Such a shame, too, because this game was fun and relaxing, like a Zen version of "Lemmings."
