Nah, while the description above mentions the iPad version, the link in this thread is specifically for the iPhone/iPod touch. There's a thread for the iPad version in the iPad sub-forum.

Wow, this game really does look gorgeous from that video by Sanuku (thanks as always, bud! ).

I'm not sure it's a game I will have fun playing, though, since it incorporates a timer, as well as enemies. This kind of atmospheric puzzle experience shouldn't be held back by baddies and timers

But it looks gorgeous on every level. The art style is very Limbo-ish (with perhaps a hint of World of Goo), and everything looks insanely smooth. If Tim Burton made a maze game on iOS, this would be it. The good Tim Burton, at least... not the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory fail of a Tim Burton

Looks amazing!

But I think I will pass, on the grounds that I really hate timers. Especially in games like this that teeter on the edge of puzzle games

There are similarities, but Miseria is way, way more polished, not to mention that it doesn't use Freeze's core mechanic. I would say inspired (and improved upon), not cloned.
