Spirit of Wandering is yet another hidden object game for iOS by G5 Entertainment (I started wondering if this is the only type of game that they develop, and thankfully it’s not). While it bears a lot of similarities to G5′s Treasure Seekers series and most hidden object games in general, it has some notable differences, as well. The story is obviously much different, following a pirate captain’s attempt to rescue her love from a spirit world. The ability to have some choice in your path through the game (as you’re able to navigate to different areas for different object finding tasks at any time) was also a nice change from Treasure Seeker 4′s mostly fixed gameplay/storyline.
How does it work?
Just as in every other hidden object game like it, you’re hunting down items in order to progress through the story. Through the compass, you have the option of getting hints if you get stuck, which depletes your gold supply every time it’s used. You earn more gold through completing your tasks, but if you run out of it and get stuck, you’re out of luck.
There are also two different types of items that you must find: “cherished” and “normal” items. You’ll need to find a few normal items before you can find a single cherished item, and there are a total of 90 of the latter and 450 hidden objects in all.
Is it contagious?
I have a higher opinion of this game than I do of G5 Entertainment’s Treasure Seekers 4, due mainly to the more comprehensive features and the ability to choose your path. The fact that you don’t have to wait to use hints (thanks to the coin system) leads to less frustration when you get stuck. The only thing that I liked better about Treasure Seekers 4 was the storyline, which is much better than in Spirit of Wandering.
If you like hidden object games and don’t mind a cheesy storyline, there’s nothing to lose in trying Spirit Wandering – The Legend HD (literally, since it’s free without the full game unlock).
