One trippy sci-fi puzzler – in space no one can hear you dream
Spirit HD Review
by on August 24, 2011
One glance at Spirit HD and you will have a shocking case of de ja vu. This is because the game borrows heavily from classics from the past. If it were a dish, Spirit HD would have been mustered up by frying up some Asteroid, adding two ounces of Space Invaders and garnishing with a sprig of Orbital.
This is no bad thing, though, as the outcome is one of the most playable puzzlers out there.
The premise is achingly simple: you have to dodge the ever growing space nasties by creating force shields big enough – by circling your ship with your finger – to suck the enemies into oblivion.
With three modes to choose from: Classic, Extreme and Pulse, there’s plenty in this game to keep you entertained – even if the premise is so wafer-thin, ever Mr Creosote wouldn’t say no to having a go.
The ambient soundtrack also means that this is one game that you will want to play with the sound up for total trippy immersion.
As this is the HD version of the game, we recommend trying it out on the biggest screen possible – if you haven’t got a tablet then any smartphone with a four-inch or higher screen will do.
