But one day, Pon Du Bear wakes up with a big hangover. "Boy, what a night", he says to himself. He was up for almost two days and nights, playing Push, eating Pops and partying with his hipster friends way too hard. He discovers that most of his cool stuff is gone. His fancy clothes... gone. "Bugger!" he thinks, "I must have lost everything at last night's game. I better get started and win it all back before my friends see me like this..."

Now it’s the players turn to help Pon getting his stuff and even more fancy things. Pon therefore provides the guidance necessary to become the leading Push player in their circle of friends around the World. The new ranked matches are not only fun, competing with others under time pressure will earn players points and a rank in the leaderboard.

“Socialspiel’s vision is to create online games, with high quality production values and appealing experiences for players and their friends to enjoy throughout their daily life online”, says CEO Helmut Hutterer.
