Crossing the Pit is a movie/game created by PuffballsUnited and the game that served as a prototype for Henry Stickmin series. It was uploaded onto Newgrounds on December 16, 2007.


The game is about an unnamed stick figure (a prototype for Henry Stickmin) trying to cross a pit. He can use leap, teleporter, cannon, rocket, bridge, pole vault, ramp and catapult. Each of those choices results in a fail however.



  • It's possible that the stick figure from this movie is an early version of Henry Stickmin.
  • Unlike other games in the series, all options lead to failure.
  • The Teleporter from this game would go on to become a running gag in the Henry Stickmin series, always resulting in a failure with the notable exception of Stealing the Diamond.
