or a car game where the driving is controlled by how much the device is rotated (you want the orientation locked, probably to landscape)… There are other games, like Rolando [1], that make use of both portrait, landscape, and a kind of "fixed mode"… where the orientation is "fixed" no matter what way you rotate the screen (think of rotating a video camera… the world in the view finder stays "fixed")
