Zen Bound Review

In this game, Chillingo, has a fabolous 3D-list about 1 min into the film.

You could think of this list as a one dimensional list, where items are arranged from top to bottom. However, you have the opportunity to arrange items on the same level around the tree. So this makes it possible to group items, which they do. You can see that they group flowers close to lanterns.

The objects respond in a physically pleasing way, both to inertia when you spin the tree around, and to gravity, when you roll the phone to the side.

I think this is a great template for immersive 3D lists.
