Skapp is a skateboard app that turns your phone into a skateboard
Finger skateboarding has hit an all-new level with Skapp. This game, skate app, turns your smartphone into a skateboard, enabling you to perform skateboard tricks by performing them using your phone. The game is from independent development studio Bound Games. The real-time emulation of the phone movement is pretty incredible, and they quell the fear of board flips with proper finger placement, though I would likely still try to flip kick flip my phone. The Kickstart campaign is set to release sometime this Fall (2020). Check out the official press release from Bound Games below:
Valencia, Spain –September 22, 2020– Independent development studio Bound Games is releasing a Kickstarter campaign in Fall 2020 to fund their new skateboarding simulator Skapp for Playstation 4, Steam, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
Skapp is played using the gyroscope and the accelerometer of your smartphone by doing the same movements performed with a real skateboard as we watch it in real time on screen.
“Skapp’s team is mission-driven to create an innovative skateboarding experience”, says Víctor Sánchez, CEO at Bound Games. “We want to breath new life into our beloved gaming genre”.
The developer’s Kickstarter campaign will help them to get more funds to finish Skapp and cover the costs related to the production and development without compromising the art and quality of the title.

Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video. Fenix will be shooting and making videos here at FanboyNation.
