Looking for a unique game to pass some time? Of course you are. Unfortunately, the Android Market is not exactly bursting with great, original games. Fear not, as we are here to point out the good and the bad (and the ugly).

Spirit HD is one of these unique titles and certainly takes a beating when it comes to playability. You control a little spirit by dragging your finger around the screen, and he follows. You have to distort space to suck up enemies, and you do this by drawing a circle with the spirit which turns into a wormhole type space. As you clear each wave, it gets more and more challenging as more enemies spawn as well as new types of enemy, which are all nicely and simplistically designed, with vivid colors and different movement patterns.

There are 3 game types; two of which are the same only one is more difficult, but the 3rd one, Pulse, is different in itself. Instead of drawing the wormholes, you collect little circles which, on contact, turn into wormholes of varying size. You also collect small yellow objects which can only be described as coins, to gain more points.

Topped off with high score lists for each mode, Spirit HD will have you playing for hours, and with the generous offer of buying once and being able to play both the HD and regular versions (in case you own both an android smartphone AND tablet, like me), you really can’t go wrong!

TROUBLESHOOTING:

Below are solutions to common problems but feel free to email us if you are still having any problems and we’ll get back to you.

* If having purchased the game you get a license failure, this is because the purchase may take some time to be recorded on the Google license server. It will resolve within a few hours or you can try restarting your device and reinstalling.
* If you purchase on the Android Market website rather than the Android Market App, you will be billed in British Pounds (GBP). Please use the Market App to be billed in your local currency. Sometimes this causes payments to be rejected because of the currency difference.
* If your download is declined, your credit card authorisation will have failed. Please update your card details (usually the address doesn’t match) and retry the purchase.
* If the package will not install, particularly on 2.2, please try unmounting the SD card (Settings, Storage) during install and you can then move the game to SD card using (Settings, Applications) although you may need to reboot before this will work. This is an android platform bug. Please Google “Install Error -18″ for full solution.
* Please note that if you are purchasing from within the EU, VAT will be added at the last stage of your purchase. We are sorry it is not possible for this to be more clearly shown at present.
* The game uses Google’s standard licensing service. It will use the internet to retrieve a license which will expire periodically and then be automatically renewed. The longer you have the game, the longer the time between license renewals.

If you have any other problems or other feedback, please don’t hesitate to drop us an email and we’ll get back to you.
