So I already gave it a try and I think its a well done puzzler especially for free (launch promo).

Only a couple of complaints here. Right now it only has tilt controls and I'd prefer if they add a slider/joystick to look left/right instead. Also the you cant see up/down. You can only move it left or right. Their year old beta video had the cam moving up/down so not sure why they removed it. Doesnt make a difference in the gameplay though so thats not a big deal. Also it has only 10 levels (acc to app description), so lets hope the promised update show up soon enough

Looks cool. I hate bad camera angles, so I hope what IMNS said is true.

Akira: You are, of course, aware of 'The Watcher' which pays full tribute to Geoff Crammond's work.

http://itunes.apple.com/nl/app/the-watcher/id338435773?mt=8

From the Surveillant app blurb above:
"Surveillant is a visionary new game with a minimalist design ethic..."

Minimalist design ethic? Well, not really, but that's arguable... Visionary new game? Not.

Honestly I pay more attention to an app when developers fully acknowledge their inspiration. It builds culture over novelty.
