“Spirits” is an action-puzzle game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch where players need to find creative solutions to guide a set number of spirits towards the goal. The spirits can be used to manipulate wind, dig tunnels and build bridges of leaves. Players are given the possibility to solve every level in their own creative way. The dynamic wind simulation and destructible level geometry allow for this kind of emergent gameplay. The wind takes some control away from the player, but also guides indirectly. Being helpful but hard to master, the wind can be the player’s friend and enemy at the same time. Sound and music are done completely with orchestral musical instruments. In combination with the beautifully hand-drawn graphics this gives the game a very unique feel.
