OverviewOverview

Bounden is a smartphone dance game that gets players to use their bodies. Two people hold opposite ends of one smartphone then move together to keep a cursor over the ball.

What starts as a novel way to interact with the game slowly encourages the two players to move creatively together as they complete each level. It's a bit silly like the classic game Twister, but also it has elements of dance running through it.

The game features a sphere that rotates using the phone's gyroscope. The sphere has markers placed on top, lined up for the players to pick up by aligning them with the crosshair in the center of the screen.

There are 8 dances in total. 4 of them are light-hearted challenges while the other 4 are graceful, ballet-like choreographies made by the Dutch National Ballet.
