Developed specifically for the Wii with a plethora of brand new gameplay features and enhancements, Geon is a fast paced arcade action game played in an energised geometric grid environment. Playing as a ‘Geon’ cube, players frantically race against up to three other opponents to collect pellets and deposit them in the opponent's goal to score. At the same time players fight desperately to prevent their opponents from scoring by the tactical use of eight different powerballs including ‘Rage’ which lays down a layer of spikes that can block an opponent or trap them, and ‘Greed’ which sucks up pellets enabling the scoring of a fast goal. All of the powerballs significantly alters the ebb and flow of each game and allows each player to develop their own unique strategies in their quest to be the first to score five goals and win the game!
Geon features a variety of single player and multiplayer modes including Duel Career Mode where your aim is to progress to the top of the four Geon leagues, or Duel and Time Attack modes which features 16 and 32 unique grids respectively and where mini games can be unlocked along the way. Alternatively take on your friends in two or four person split screen multi-player battles to become the undisputed Geon master!
So, what is a powerball? At the beginning of a game of Geon players create a new profile or choose an existing one that they have previously created. After selecting a particular game mode they have a choice of eight powerballs. Each one has special and unique abilities that can be used during the game. Careful and strategic use of this powerball can make the difference between winning and losing, so choose wisely!
The ‘Bliss’ powerball creates three extra ‘ghost’ cubes that help collect pellets, increasing the rate of accumulation over that of your opponent.
