Gamenauts has been a game developer since 2005 with titles for the PC, DS and Wii. The company, however, is about to make their first move into iPhone gaming with a brand new title called Stickbound.
The game centers around a new gameplay mechanic where the character extends a stick to pole vault themselves throughout the level. The came consists of a series of platforms that must be navigated as you try to get as far as possible.
As you can see from the video, tapping on screen extends the stick in that direction. Well timed and placed taps will keep your character in motion as you try to make it farther. Falling in between the platforms results in your demise. The game is expected to have global high scores, unlockable characters as well as mini achievements. Stickbound is due later this month.
