Spirit of Wandering
The king of hidden object games always
keeps Family Friendly Gaming on our toes. G5 Entertainment shakes things
up with their franchises as well. Spirit of Wandering does some
interesting new things. And there are a few things we have seen before.
The storyline in Spirit of Wandering revolves around a seafaring couple.
I am being nice as they are pirates.
The female captain gets attacked by The Flying Dutchman, and is the sole survivor. She goes on a quest to try and find her recently lost love. They are all trapped in the spirit world, and she is working to free them. Various watery screens are used in Spirit of Wandering. Twenty-four in all. Players find items, and then use a crystal ball to find a special item. Then they do it all over again until all the special items are found on a screen.
The most interesting and different thing about Spirit of Wandering is the hint system. Players start with so much gold. There are also special levels where additional gold can be earned. Finding items also earns gold. If you want a hint then you have to pay fifty gold. If you touch the wrong spot on the screen then you lose one gold coin.
The music in Spirit of Wandering can be pleasant at times, and eerie at other times. The spiritual nature of Spirit of Wandering is present and accounted for. I have not seen beliefs in this vein before. Most hidden object games can be blown through. The hint system in Spirit of Wandering encourages patience. Players will not rush through this iPad game.
Letters from Nowhere also has a female hero hunting down her love. So it is interesting that two G5 Entertainment games released around the same time have similar themes. The objects hidden in Spirit of Wandering are sometimes difficult to find and other times easy. Some of the screens are cluttered and others are crisp and clean. That level of diversity is one of the reasons Spirit of Wandering sticks out in the genre.
Spirit of Wandering is completely free right now. So it is worth the price of admission.
