A fun, colorful game with slightly annoying controls
Dewy's Adventure is a fun, colorful game that has some great potential and I really wish it could get expanded upon in a follow up. The game takes place in a bright, colorful world where you play what is essentially a water drop. Throughout the game you have control of the state of dewy, changing him from gas to liquid to a solid to solve puzzles and battle enemies throughout the game. On the whole the puzzles and boss battles make good use of this mechanic and the game itself is rather quite in its execution. The only major drawback however is the control mechanic for Dewy. You essentially slide him around the screen which can be extremely frustrating at times with the Wii's imprecise controls. This gets so bad at some points that I literally wanted to forget the game. Its these controls which make a potentially excellent childrens game become a potential nightmare. If you can get pas those controls though there is a lot of charm and artistic creativity in the game.
