What I love about that game is that you can also play it together!

There's something downright charming about Spirits for iPad that's hard to describe. Maybe it's the unique and gorgeous hand-painted levels. Maybe it's the cute, whimsical spirits floating in the air. Or, maybe, it's the soundtrack -- that sticks with you long after you play. Whatever it is, this is an app that takes the Lemmings formula (guide a series of creatures who follow in each other's footprints) and alters it just enough that it seems unique. The game won the Best Aesthetics award at IndieCade -- an international juried festival of independent video games -- and it's sure to win your heart too.
