Spirit Roots is a traditional 2D platformer where you run, jump, fight, evade traps, collect coins, and beat bosses. With a stitched-together artwork, the visual will remind you of the scenes from the movie Coraline.
STORY OF SPIRIT ROOTS
Long ago, on the outskirts of a small, but undoubtedly, very warlike star system, armed conflict raged for a hundred years among the system’s inhabitants.
The fighting was so fierce that in the end only one small piece remained of each of the planets. At that point, the inhabitants of all of the planets decided that they would have to stop fighting in order to survive. So, they stitched together the remaining pieces of their worlds into one large planet with a single, absolute condition: no one could violate anyone else’s borders.
But what happens when someone breaks this rule? Let’s find out!
- Five worlds with completely different atmospheres, gameplay mechanics, and enemies
- 50 levels
- Each stage has a unique soundtrack
- Epic boss battles. Corn cannons wielded by farmer robots? Huge spiders? Flying skulls? Mud monsters We’ve packed it all into our game!
- Ten kinds of enemies and dozens of gameplay mechanics
- Spellbinding artwork with picturesque parallax backgrounds and mystical silhouettes
- Controller support
Immerse yourself in a world populated by the many species of merciless flora and fauna found on the Stitched-Together Planet on the outskirts of the star system.

Some Bug Fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful, enjoyable game with a few possible annoyances.
I agree mostly with other reviewers in that the deaths do get annoying and feel a bit cheap at time. I also feel that the camera is a little close, making jumps and enemies hard to see. I realize that you are going for a sort of old school feel in that aspect. I also think that a three-hit system is more favorable, as a lot of platformer games use it presently. A few other things that bother me some what are the noise the character makes every time he moves gets a little annoying and the way the camera moves with you when you are moving but moves back to you when you stop, combined with the field of depth, tend to make me a little nauseated at times. One addition I would like to see is button location and/or sizing options. I realize some of this is nitpicking and only my opinion but it is because I really love everything else about it. I love all the art and animations a great deal and I like the characters, music and the story a lot as well. It is because of this that I decided to write a review. I enjoy your work and look forward to future projects. Thank you.
Looks great. Full stop.
The world you created looks great and it’s what got me to buy the game. I was excited to see what the story of this world would be, but sadly, no story. The game starts cold (unless there was a story that didn’t play for me?). No idea why I’m on this quest, who the bad guys are, or why there are little ghosts (?) hovering around me. Give me a reason to keep playing.
I get you’re going for the old school feel with the instant deaths, the difference here is the you have no space to react to the pitchfork flying at you. Contra gave you a very zoomed out screen with time to dodge the bullets (plus, at the time, the graphics weren’t good enough to have tighter cameras). You made a beautiful game that requires a close camera and therefore no means to react or protect yourself from a quick flying pitchfork from close range.
Finally, is there any character ability development? I’m 3 or 4 levels in and would love to know there’s some twists or something to keep this from becoming monotonous.
Better than reviews suggest - it’s a good game
I took a chance and I’m glad because it’s actually not as hard as people are saying (tho I am really good at platformers); the graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay is fun. Also, they added iCloud sync which is always a bonus.
Updating my review as the devs have released an update that pretty much addressed all my issues. The only thing I noticed now is not all of the Game Center achievements are working (I let the devs know of this tho, so I’m sure they’ll fix in next update).
Definitely a solid platformer and great addition to the iOS library.
UPDATE: just completed the game and REALLY disappointed to find the game freezes and you can’t continue or see the final cutscene after bating the last boss. I beat the game twice and it did this both times. So devs need to fix this bug ASAP and 6 achievements that won’t work.
