Spirits for iPad
By Spaces of Play
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
"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.

"Striking art and innovative gameplay"
"When the wind physics start to do their thing, the experience is pretty magical."
–Mike Schramm, tuaw.com
"Spirits is clever, challenging, and beautiful"
"There are a number of titles out there that really ooze that special 'indie magic', and Spirits is one of them."
"Spirits is an outstanding blend of puzzle and strategy"
"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"
"Relaxing, stunning, and simple will keep players coming back for more"
"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"

I'm really enjoying this app and it is quite fun to think of different possibilities to get the spirits to the swirl. I recommend this and I really like it.
