App description: d-capitatrix combines touch and tilt controls in a unique new gameplay concept: Place wormholes and make your robo-girl's head roll through by tilting the device!
Teleport heads from gate to gate to bring them back to their pretty robotic bodies.

Tricky: You can't turn the playing field upside down - instead, cleverly place the portals to accelerate your head up in the air!
Note that you can only place wormholes on grey wall parts.

Conquer demanding puzzles and dangerous traps, such as electric arcs, explosives and tricky mechanics.
Sometimes, it's all about the right strategy - and sometimes it's all about skill and the right trajectory.
Prove your skills in this amazing new physics puzzler!

Features crisp high res graphics on Retina Display devices!

How did I miss this? It looks pretty damn good, physics puzzlers really hit my soft spot. Gonna download it now and if I like it I'll have a go at promoting it around the forum

Gonna bump this topic because it's really quite a fun game. The load times can be slightly unforgiving and there's a small amount of lag on my iPT4, but the gameplay itself is something people should be checking out. It's basically another 2D version of Portal; you have to place the portals around the level and use the accelerometer to roll the head around, avoiding traps like fire/electricity, using gravity and motion to your advantage until you reuinte the head with its body.

I know there are a lot of Portal fans around here, so I just have to find a way of getting them into this topic

Thanks @ MidianGTX!

You're right, maybe I should have emphasized a bit stronger the "Portal" game mechanics in the descriptive text...
Actually, it *is* a kind of 2D interpretation of the Portal gameplay.

Very nice and unique game! Plays very good on the iPhone, but I like the iPad version best. The fembots animations are bigger there...
