Raindrops keep falling on my head! That doesn’t mean my… Oh, hi. I’ve just gotten done playing a bit of Dewy’s Adventure and I can’t keep that cute little raindrop off my mind. With such an adorable mascot, who can blame me? As Dewy, you must save the Tree of Seven Colors from the slimy clutches of Don Hedron and free the forest of the corrupting Black Water. Turn Dewy into a block of ice or a cloud to defeat any foes that Don Hedron has sent your way. Free the Eau, solve puzzles, and drizzle your way to cleaning up the land of this evil menace!
You may have noticed Dewy’s Adventure looks a little childish. Yes, this game is definitely geared toward the younger audience but the gameplay is great. It’s a cross between a ball rolling puzzle game and a platforming adventure and it pulls the mix off quite well. However, there are a few snags here and there. The game isn't too long of an adventure and the enemies so far have been very easy to take out. Other than that and keeping Dewy from falling off the edges of the map, there isn’t too big of a challenge here. There are a few problems with the controls too. Jumping isn’t the easiest thing done in this game and movements themselves seem a bit sticky. Even with a few drawbacks, Dewy’s Adventure has a bright silver lining around its clouds.
This game is a real joy to play, even if it is rather short. It’s a truly original story and it’s a great break from the usual gaming affairs. From the controls to the story and right down to the visuals, everything in this game excels. However there are some big drawbacks for older gamers. The kiddy theme is sure to detour even the most passive of players with all its cute squeaks and huggable characters and the ease of play too will have many a gamer wishing for a more difficult challenge. Even with those setbacks, the game is a knockout. It may appeal to the younger audiences but even with its bells and whistles, older gamers should find a drop or two of enjoyment.
I was excited to get this game. I'd seen it in stores and thought the cover was so cute and that it would be alot of fun. I also noticed that it went up to 4 players so I was excited about that. The game has very cute menus and sounds but fails all around for me. Multiplayer makes no sense and isn't fun at all. Plus, when you're playing, you have to move Dewey around by tilting the wii remote and this gets frustrating. If you play too long, it starts to bug your eyes. The game had promise and a fun storyline, but it doesn't make me want to play it.
