‘Gumulon’ is set in the dark, cavernous depths of an endless outer space mine. Players play as Ace, a maverick mining professional on planet ‘Gumulon’. One day, during a heroic mining mission in Gumulon’s deepest mine, Ace awakens a terrifying prehistoric cave beast. Narrowly avoiding the monster’s jaws, our hero begins a death-defying climb to freedom, as the fast-paced action of ‘Gumulon’ begins.


According to the press release, “In addition to compelling game play, game unlocks can be activated by scanning the barcode on packs of Stride gum while in the app. The barcodes on each of the nine Stride flavors unlocks a different bonus to give Ace an extra boost.”



‘Gumulon’ will also feature unique social media components. As Ace falls into the jaws of the monster, the front facing camera captures a still of the player’s face, creating an image featuring the player’s top score and chewing face that can then be shared across their social media channels.


‘Gumulon’ is available free on the AppStore: or

The game was created in collaboration with W+K London and Johnny Two Shoes compatible with iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPad 2, iPad 3rd & 4th generation, iPad Mini, iPod Touch 4th & 5th generation.
