Geon Cube is more super and Pac-Man than Super Pac-Man

3:00 AM on 09.30.2009 // Jonathan Holmes

Have you heard of Geon Cube? Yeah, I didn't think so; I hadn't either until I got this press release. That lack of press alone probably spells doom for this game. No matter how great it turns out, people aren't going to buy it. No one wants to take a chance on a new puzzle game these days, unless ofcourse it's built into Facebook, or it has an awesomely meaningless name like "Snood" or "Wiggletwats".

That's the main reason I'm worried about Geon Cube; the name. The game basically looks like a kick-ass new Pac-Man game, complete with 4-player versus mode, power-ups, and simple but gratifying combat. If Geon Cube were called Pac-Man Wii, it would be sure to sell a million copies easy, but without that brand recognition, I fear for the title's chance at survival. Worse, when people suspect that a game may be a worthless clone of a game they already like (like Pac-Man) they tend to make a point to ignore it. 

Well, I'm going to get Geon Cube when it comes out Oct. 20th, even if I have to jump through some hoops to do so. How about you? You interested in this?

Oh, and a video and full press release are available after the jump. 






Pomona, CA – September 21, 2009 – UFO Interactive Games, Inc., a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, announced today that the action-puzzle title, GEON CUBE™, will be scoring its way onto the Nintendo Wii™ console on October 20, 2009.


Grab your cube in this psychedelic, pick-up-and-play action puzzle game of rapidly changing tactics, bright colors, power ups and frenzied speed to see who is the undisputed Geon Master!



Frantically race against your opponents playing as one of eight Geon emoticon cubes as you collect pellets and score goals, while preventing them from doing the same! Utilize unique power ups as you go back, forward and upside down in this easy-to-play-hard-to-master title!



* Varied Level Design - Utilizing a unique 3D grid design, each of the 32 levels have their own layout, with little things like loops, elevated and lowered areas, along with the "reverse" side of the board, creating tactical choices and strategy not found in any other puzzler.

* Geon Cubes For The Win - Choose from 8 different Geon cubes (along with 32 player avatars for player profiles), each with their own unique abilities and power ups, such as spikes, traps, speed boosts, and summons that can alter the outcome of the game in your favor! Choosing which cube for the right grid can make all the difference!

* Different Game Modes For Extra Fun - Featuring a variety of single and multiplayer modes including Dual Career Mode, Time Attack, Team Geon, Duel Mode (Deathmatch), Last Man Standing and the unlockable Mini-Game Mode, this title allows one to four players to pick and choose the event that will get their pulses racing!

* Multiplayer Fun - Team up with a friend in an amazing 2vs2 battle or put all your skills to the ultimate test in the free-for-all mode to see who comes out victorious!

* Wii Specific Controls - Built in Wii Remote functionality allows players to perform "jumpbash: attack moves by flicking the controller like a drumstick, increasing the interactivity in an already fast paced, exciting game.

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.

Had the brilliant idea of watching the original Alien last night before bed. Totally didn't have crazy dreams afterward. Also, Bilbo Baggins was a total jerk in that movie. [img][/img]

Finished playing the fan localization for Ace Investigations 2. These guys did a fantastic job, despite this game having the single most convoluted plot in the entire series. Here's hoping that somehow, someday, Great Ace Attorney will get this treatment.
