DERBY, ENGLAND, September 26 2008– Following on from the recent announcement of the release of Geon on Nintendo Wii™ in February 2009, Pinnacle Software and Strawdog Studios are excited to announce the unveiling of the first in a series of‘powerball’ gameplay trailers beginning with‘BLISS’.

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!

BLISS– The‘Bliss’ powerball creates three extra‘ghost’ cubes that help collect pellets, increasing the rate of accumulation over that of your opponent.
