App description: "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.


REVIEWS

"Striking art and innovative gameplay"
The Escapist

"When the wind physics start to do their thing, the experience is pretty magical."
Mike Schramm, tuaw.com

"Spirits is clever, challenging, and beautiful"
Gamasutra

"There are a number of titles out there that really ooze that special 'indie magic', and Spirits is one of them."
TouchArcade

"Spirits is an outstanding blend of puzzle and strategy"
DIYgamer

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

"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"
GamesRadar

"Relaxing, stunning, and simple will keep players coming back for more"
148Apps

"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"

Hopefully I am not spamming, but i posted in the iPhone section as well.

This has dropped to free. Picked it up when it was .99, but free is great!

Thanks

Agreed. A very zen-like lemmings type puzzler. Another hidden treasure that has no business being free, or even discounted, but with so many apps, it's probable that a lot of great games go unnoticed.

Hope the dev does well, and continues to produce quality apps.

I'm with you right there. Was more than a little sad to see it go free. I wonder how this gesture will boost sales but I sure hope it helps the dev. I love this game and it goes into a folder where I keep artistically beautiful games like Sword&Sworcery, Kometen, daWindci and Spider.

Trying to get the hang of it. In particular controlling the wind effect and the small nooks and crannies where the spirits get blocked or in a loop are a matter of getting used to (and frustrating at times, there goes my zen spirit ).

Any tips on perfecting level 8? 7 spirits and 2 plants is easy, but that lower plant ...
