Has anyone tried it?

I watched the video on the web site and it's pretty freaky. It's only $.99 now and I was wondering how it played.

I went ahead and bought it. It's interesting. The instructions aren't very clear about the rules. Apparently you can only rotate blocks that will make a match (it's another match three game).

The method of changing your view is pretty impressive. It looks like the block are actually inside the screen.

I'd recommend trying it just for the experience. I never thought I'd play game that was that interactive.

This is the same kind of effect found in Tilt Me.

My favorite of the labyrinth clones. I'm sure this effect is something we'll see more of down the road. It would be really cool in a mario-esque side scrolling action game.

Or any kind of action game really. Being able to shift your view in an adventure game by tilting the device would be awesome.

I think game devs have some serious iPhone exploiting to do.
