Trism game for iPhone uses touchscreen & accelerometer

Sod the Enterprise features, what the iPhone needs is a really good game - something it can do and that pales on other devices. Trism, spotted on YouTube (you can see the video after the cut), might be just the thing: ostensibly a basic colour-matching puzzle, the game uses both the touchscreen, to move rows, and the iPhone’s accelerometer (which normally adjusts the screen orientation depending on which way round the cellphone is held). In this case, triangles fall into open space following the direction of gravity fitting to the orientation of the iPhone.
Demiforce, the game’s creators, are planning an official release once Apple make the SDK available. A demo version, requiring a Jailbroken iPhone, is also in the works.
