Android users can now awkwardly dance with their phones

Bounden, a mobile game that is a cross between Twister and interpretative dance, launched today for Android devices, developer Game Oven Studios announced.

The game, which was developed with help from the Dutch National Ballet, encourages players to perform sometimes-beautiful and often-awkward dance routines by using the phone's gyroscope to match shapes on the screen.

The iOS version of the game was released in May, but the Android version was delayed while the studio worked on making the game perform consistently across different devices. The Android version is now available from Google Play for $2.99.

The video below shows the gyroscope issues the developers had to resolve before the game could be released on Android. The Android version of the game shops with tutorial videos with the Dutch National Ballet and Google Play Games achievements.
