Kenichi Nishi has returned to iPhone/iPod Touch development -- his last release on the platform was Newtonica2 in December 2008 -- and of course, his new game is really odd. What do else do you expect from the creative mind behind LOL, L.O.L.: Lack of Love, and Moon?

Geotrion uses the mobile's GPS feature to figure out your location, then challenges you to suck up nearby energy icons and "create triangles with people in worldwide scale in real time." To do that, you need to tap other users on a map and send them a call, then they'll call someone else, which creates a triangle on the map using your three locations.

The goal of the game is to create as big a triangle as possible, enclosing as many energy icons enclosed in that triangle as you can. By zooming out on the map to higher altitudes, you can increase your score with the triangles you form. You can also set up the game to send your triangle accomplishments to Twitter.

Like I said, it's a strange concept and probably not for most people! You can download Geotrion, which was released under a new GameComplex label, from the App Store for $2.99.
