    Interesting, I will for sure give it a shot when I get home.

    It might look a little wierd, tilting my 17" MBP all over the place :p

    That's really cool. I had no idea that my MacBook's accelerometer was anywhere near that sensitive.

    This is the best accelerometer application since Macsaber! (Which was off the hook btw)

    I'm sure I played a marble rolling game that used my Powerbooks tilt sensor, this was a few years ago though. Not something I'd play too much for fear of damaging my system :D

    I'm gonna try it as soon as it finishes downloading, looks pretty interesting :)

    Though it'll be weird swinging around my MBP, it's not exactly light/small (relatively speaking)

    It's a very nice game and the macbook tilting makes it feel very real, the game really comes to alive when playing on a MacBook (the mouse control is not bad but not nearly as fun or even as precise) great implementation of the gyroscopes in the MBP.

    Nice :)

    Simply play the game, on the exit screen click the "Registration / Beta feedback" button which will open a registration web page, there you just enter your email address and click submit.

    Didn't work for me? I had to use the trackpad?

    This question begs to be asked. Shouldn't this be on iPhone instead?

    Are you serious? Don't let go, and I think you and your computer will be just fine.

    Doesn't matter, you can use the mouse, default installation is mouse enabled.

    Did you check the options to enable tilt sensor? This game obviously was created for multiple systems, those with tilt sensors could enjoy a different style of game play but it's not limited to systems WITH tilt sensors, you can use mouse/trackpad as well.

    Check the options.

    Ofcourse the iPhone version is under heavy development for some time, so we should be able to release it shortly. :)
