I haven't played the iPhone/iTouch version either, since I only have an iPad, but this looks really nice! Is it a dual-stick shooter?

Spirit is awesome on the iPhone. I'm looking forward to the iPad release. I just got my iPad and have yet to find that one app capable of showing it off. This game just might be the game to do that.

I was thinking of making a thread about this game for the iPad the other day!

I love spirit on the iPhone, really fun game.

Thanks everyone

heavy liquid, it's not a dual stick shooter, even though it's styled as one. I wanted to try and create an action arcade game more tailored for touch screen, I hope people like it.

I guess it's a line drawer in a sense: you slide to trace the main character's path, trying to avoid enemies, and capture them in warps which you create by looping your own trail.

I'll be shooting a live video of the iPad version later today, and will get it on youtube asap. Until then, here's the original iPhone trailer:

Wow, looks great -- thanks for the trailer! Reminds me a bit of Geometry Wars and Fl0w visually, and the gameplay looks fun.

I'm really looking forward to this since I'm already playing it mainly on the iPad it would be nice to play a version looking snazzy smooth.
