The game, as it is on the site, is, I think, totally unsuitable for the 
FR. The gameplay is completely mouse/static monitor oriented. A port of 
the game would have to switch to accelerometer/static view based 
interface (the dynamic view simply makes no sense, as the view switches 
left and right as the ball changes direction, which would seem totally 
unnatural in the context of a held tilted screen). The FAQ on the site 
specifically states that changing the zoom would entail completely 
redesigning all of the levels, a statement I tend to agree with.
