The Watcher - for iPhone + iPod touch

If you have ever played Geoff Crammond's classic game "The Sentinel" then you'll be right at home with "The Watcher".

If you've not played the original then basically the aim is to move to the top of a level and absorb one or more eyes, who slowly rotate and will sap your energy if they see you. It sounds kind of confusing but once you've played it for a few minutes you'll see it's actually pretty simple - but still requires a lot of strategy to beat on the later levels!

The Watcher contains 75 levels of increasing difficulty spread over 3 worlds.

There is a random level generator to create a nearly infinite number of levels, and you can configure it easily to make levels suited to your skill.

The game is full real-time 3D.

It is currently in review with Apple and should be out around the 20th of November, maybe a little before.

Never played Sentinel, but this looks intriguing.
