Glad I held off on the iPhone game. This looks like the perfect way to play. This is definitely on my wish list.

I find all the hidden object games get very boring but the multiplayer sounds really fun. Any impressions of the multiplayer mode?

I am going to grab Spirit HD as well

Okay here are some quick impressions.

After downloading, I have no idea why the file is so huge. The game looks like you would expect it to, so don't expect anything special. Voice work is good and the art work seems to be true to the original.

There is loading (10-15 seconds) between every mode you select. Not a huge deal but riddiculous for how big the game is and how little goes on in game. Scrolling over the area works fine but could be smoothed out a little. I also think that the graphics could be much sharper as well.

There seem to be three modes, two of which are single player and then a party mode that is two players. Single player seems to be an adventure with a little story and a world map but you are basically just looking for things, which of course is what the game is about. Party mode is a split screen mode set up like tug of war. As you find an item your side pulls on the rope and tries to pull the other team off. There are some power ups as well.

I have young kids so I will see if they like this or not. This should be a much smaller download but the price is probably okay for what you get.
