In the Game Boy Advance video game bit Generations: Dotstream, Pause is among the three powerups. Pause, like the other powerups in the game, can be acquired by sending the player's racer through a flashing square that appears on the stage. Once acquired, the player can activate it by pressing the A button. When activated, the normally black screen will turn white and all of the player's opponents will start to go very slow. Despite only lasting several seconds, this is a very effective item.
