App description: Perloo is a geometric fairy tale. Abandon your assumptions, solve a series of mind-bending challenges and find your way to the true world.

Perloo is a compact one-of-a-kind puzzle adventure that challenges you to think outside of your comfort zone. See how the real world influences the virtual one and vice versa. Perloo plays with physics, quantum mechanics, philosophy, optics and perception to create a world with rules of its own.

Perloo is a ludic experiment, perhaps even a philosophical proposition. But most of all, Perloo is an excruciatingly hard puzzle game. You might cry.

Nine mind-bending puzzles that will leave you pulling your hair out
Never know whats next with challenges that force you to think outside the black (or white, or champagne) box
Automatically saves your game for the illusion of progress
Original soundtrack by Ella Empress and the Layers of Reality
Supported by philosophers

Might not look like too much as I couldn't pull all of the images that were in the appinfo but this is a very interesting puzzle/art game. Seems like the rules and aim changes every level so it's all about experimentation and discovery.

I definitely recommend getting it while it's free!

Not sure if the game site is meant to an experimental puzzle thing too, because

Check out the Perloo mini-site for videos, the ‘making of’ and more
But the site seems blank.

That was a weird ride. Seems only 3 of us have finished the game. You get 142 achievement points when you do though as an incentive. Honestly, i wasn't even sure what I was doing in a couple of stages.

It'll be nice if this one is universal and has pause option (or may be I couldn't find it?). Only 3 levels so far and I used tilt control, any other control option?

Weird, it's fine on my iPad 2 on latest OS. Have you tried all the usual fixes?
