    Does anyone know how to enable the gyroscopic features on Jenga HD on the iPad 2? I downloaded it and went to Classic Mode and the only way I can get the camera to move around is by swiping. How do I turn on where I can tilt the iPad 2 left and right to "look" around? Thanks.

    It works for me...try tapping the icon in the bottom right of the screen? It's a great use of the gyro.

    EDIT: The developers just acknowledged a bug where you need to tap just *below* the icon on the bottom right of the screen to enable the gyro, they are fixing this issue in the next update.

    Jenga is a pretty lame use of the gyroscope, IMHO.

    Yes, you can turn the iPad and see a corresponding change in viewpoint on-screen. But since the on-screen view rotates around the block tower, it's not a natural fit to the gryo. The gyro fits best with scenarios where your eye is the fixed center of rotation and you are moving your viewport.
