Veiled Games just released their newest iPhone game called Up There [App Store]. The $1.99 game is a re-imagining of a TI-83 game called Fall Down. Versions of this game have been done a few times now in the App Store, but this one stands out.
The premise of Fall Down was simple: you are a ball and you fall down a series of holes. The walls are moving upward at an increasing rate if you are pushed up to the top of the screen, you lose.
Up There places you in accelerometer control of a balloon that wants to rise. But bookshelves, lumber, branches, clouds and stars will get in your way. You must tilt your iPhone left and right to maneuver your balloon through the openings. If you get pushed down past the bottom of the screen, game over. High scores are kept locally but can also be submitted to a global list.
Despite the simple premise, the artwork, style and music of this game really stands out and makes it a joy to play.
The developer video captures it well (Youtube version):
