Here's a preview of Pon's "Shark Armor"

More Pictures of Gear and Items coming soon!
As well as some "Dungeon" Art!

Hello! My name is Tristan! The producer behind Pon! I'm here to tell you about “Pon”- a new addictive virtual pet with RPG elements that we'll be launching soon for the iOS! In Pon, you'll be able to collect gear, battle and explore different levels! Before I lose your attention span I'll quickly give you an idea of what Pon looks like, or you can just jump into the trailer here:

Let's also take a peek at the sweet interface.

In Pon, when you aren't exploring a grassy field or cave- you'll have a pad away from your pad. You and your pet will make lots and lots of money and have ridiculously fancy things. Everything from that retro tv above to a gold plated cuckoo clock will be purchasable to satisfy your tackiest of tastes. I plan on stuffing at least 100 collectibles for launch, and with options like a plasma television and salvaged cyborg- not to mention colorful shopping venues, I think you'll be entertained.

As you level up, Pon will also be able to wear some super cool gear- like a birthday hat- or an eye patch if you're some kind of ghost loving tough guy.

There will be many skins and costumes for your Pon, but you'll have to earn it. All Pons will start out as cute grey blobs. Really spiffy ones will be available for the high leveled players.

Pon's Battle System happens to be my favorite element of the game. (who doesn't like battling cute pets?) It was designed to both give newbies a fighting chance as well as give the more hardcore a slight edge. In Pon, the battle system will consist of 3 factors. A Rock, Scissors, Paper face off followed by a SPIN phase is which the two competing players will spin the wheel as quickly as possible to accumulate damage bonuses.

Did we mention there'd be mini games?

So! Interested? Great! In order to give the game some buzz and build up awareness we'll be doing in game currency giveaways for legendary items and experience boosters. We've also got stickers, shirts, postcards and other
cool stuff for our fans pre-launch! To get in on these contests you'll have to head over to our Facebook Page and like us here: https://www.facebook.com/ponponofficial

[SIZE="4"]We are also encouraging users give us ideas for items and feedback on the game! We want to know what you'd like to see! If you're interested in being a part of Beta also feel free to drop us a line on Facebook! We expect that this will occur sometime in early May!

This looks really interesting. I've always loved the kind of virtual pet genre. This looks like it's adding many awesome components to it. The video trailer made me laugh at the start also.

^^! Think of Pon as a virtual pet with some MMO-esque elements. We'll be adding a little battle breakdown video soon so stay tuned for that as well as other content

Pon Battle Teaser!

Pon's battle system preview is here!

Youtube link | Pop Up

Combat will consist of 3 Phases:

1.Rock Paper Scissors
2.Spin Wheel (outdo your opponent)
3.Gear and Base Stats

The victor is the challenger who can win 2 or more of the battle phases. However, after the 1st set of combat, 2 more instances of combat will begin in 2 progressive landscapes, where the winner will be determined.

The battle systems gives noobs a chance to beat stronger players,
however it still ensures that players who have worked hard for gear
and style will always have the stat edge!

Here's a look at Pon's "Shark Armor"

We'll be doing armor, weapon, and item previews as well as unveiling additional content so stay tuned and like us on Facebook!
