Tilt your iPhone to explore eBoy’s mind-boggling art and find the right angle to solve the puzzle. Over 100 levels in this game. Lots of them have a 3D effect, others are layered compositions or sliced madness. The challenge is to find the hints that lead to the solution.

The game sells for under US$2 and is not the most amazing game or a good one it seems but it is Pixelart :)

See it here and play the online demo.
