Stereoscopic 3D games.

I have been enjoying this app called "Diorama" which uses a stereoscopic/holographic 3D effect, giving the illusion of depth. It works by changing the perspective as you tilt your iPhone (and the accelerometer senses the tilt), without the need for glasses.

To get a better idea of what I mean, watch this video:

And I was just wondering if anyone knows of any other apps that use this effect? I don't know if it is possible, but maybe there could be a 3D effect side-scrolling platformer?

Near impossible?
I completed the first level in about 3 attempts. The next 2 levels are easy but I am stuck at the 'bowl' level.

Aye, got up to the right platform on bowl once but then fell off trying to correct the ipods position for the move across the bridge, will try a bit more later

I completed it.
The next level "bridges" is pretty easy, but the level after that is insane
