"The enemy is a homicidal CCTV camera and it's stalking you with a deadly laser beam. The only way to defeat it is to get right up close and personal. It's like playing hide-and-seek with HAL from 2001." - JOYSTIQ.COM




"inspired by retro games of the pre-NES era, Surveillant is unlike anything most iOS game enthusiasts will have encountered before. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a good game of Hide-and-Seek and doesn’t have an aversion toward tilt controls" - IFANZINE.COM


Inspired by the 8-bit classic 'The Sentinel', Surveillant is a stark and stylish 'stealth-em-up' with simple tilt & tap controls. 12 increasingly challenging levels await your exploration as you try to reach the sinister CCTV Camera sweeping an arc of hot red destruction across the landscape.

Your goal is to reach the base of the CCTV Cam! But the higher you get, the more you expose yourself to view - one wrong move and you'll be TOASTED!

With subtle, ambient audio and music by Vector Lovers HEADPHONES are recommended... the sound of the wind builds as you ascend and the whine of the laser shifts frequency as the beam strikes different surfaces. Getting spotted by the CCTV will make you jump - again and again!



TILT the device left or right to turn toward the left or right.

TILT the device away / towards you to look up and down.

TOUCH platforms or ground to move to that point. You can move a long way if the landing point is clearly visible. While moving you can still turn around - but you cannot start a new move until you have landed.

HOLD the LOOK BUTTON / MINI SCANNER to look at the CCTV Camera. Remember, the view might be blocked by a wall - if so, the CCTV can't see you either! The MINI SCANNER shows the CCTV's cone of vision as well as yourself (white dot) and any Drones (red dots).

PAUSE the game by touching the status bar at the top of the screen.

Controls (or lack of) are the weak point

This would be a fun stealth puzzler if only the controls let you play. The accelerometer as view control would make a nice *addition* to help you see if you can be seen. However, tilt is THE ONLY control you have, and worse, you can't even recalibrate it (let's forget about trying to invert any of the axes). This makes moving around a horribly labor intensive affair, which has two steps: pan awkwardly to spot open floor, then tap to move. Repeating these two things in rapid succession just makes you wish the laser would get it over with already.

The developer says this is going to get retired, to make way for a new one, and I really hope the scheme is better in the next version - it's really a concept that I'd like to play.

Running from lasers is more fun than it sounds

The graphics are slick and the environments creatively done. I found the gameplay to be intuitive and easy to control. There is a fair bit of puzzling out the best route to take and often those plans are quickly ruined by the roving eye forcing you to adapt a new strategy. A beautiful refreshing gem of a game in a sea of look a likes.

Wonderful game!

I've never played anything quite like it. Great graphics and very original challenging gameplay. The camera and drone sound effects are truly frightening. I really love everything about this game! Please, recluse industries, keep making iOS games! Please!
