App description: Phoenix Spirit is the winner of "Best Mobile Game" at the Swedish Game Awards 2010!

"Phoenix Spirit is a cool game of exploration, filled with well drawn pixel art, immersive music, and a neat game concept that any fan of Metroidvania side-scrollers shouldn't miss." -Toucharcade

"Phoenix Spirit is one of those games that you really need to get for the iPhone or iPad(screen doubled)." -Touchgen Review (4/5)

"The game is throughly enjoyable and you do want to keep playing it and exploring along the forest. It is probably one of the few unique games that will keep you entertained on the edge of your seat and yet relaxing at the same time." -Touchreviews (4/5)

"It's actually a really beautiful game. It's got such a great atmosphere about it."
- AverageApper

"I just played this game for an hour on the toilet because I was so lost in the game. The artwork is beautiful, and the atmosphere is very zen (especially with headphones)." -First impressions from Toucharcade forum

The Mother Tree is ill and only you can heal it!

Main appeal of the game is about exploring the forest and discovering the cause of the Mother Tree's illness. To do this you will be able to unlock new areas as well as revisit old areas in order to gain new powers to cure the disease. The game is based loosely on the Metroidvania concept but provides a more relaxing experience.

The gameplay is comparable to a traditional shooter but with the freedom of flying. This adds exciting new gameplay in a whole new dimension!

Phoenix Spirit is a game that is for everyone. Even if you haven't played games before it will be easy to understand with it's simple controls and gameplay using the iPhone's accelerometer. Getting through the game will be fun and provide plenty of challenge.

Features:
- Save the Mother Tree - Discover the cause of the disease and get rid of it
- Exploring - Use the custom designed control scheme to explore the forest at your own pace
- Aestheticss - Be awed by the stunning visuals and dynamic music
- Powerups - Collect and upgrade powerups for your spirit in order to battle the illness
- Big world - Enjoy a vast world with no loading times

Well, the game doesn't have as much content as a proper metroidvania game would have. It is however still a steal and I do urge you to rob us. Make sure you tell your friends to do that as well

The official date is 17th of May so Id assume in about 12 hours for USA. Not entirely sure though.

At such a cheap offer I guarantee I will take a punt on it! Is it an introductory offer?
It would be unfair to expect symphony of the night for 59p, but I would be very happy with a few hours of that style of gameplay.
Roll on 12am GMT

Yes, it is an introductory price but we will probably not go a lot higher than this.

Hope you guys will enjoy the game It should hopefully be a fresh breeze with all these zombie and doodle stick men games.
