Dewy's Adventure (水精デューイの大冒険!! Suisei Dewy no Daibōken, ? lit. "Dewy the Droplet's Big Adventure!!") is a video game for Nintendo's Wii console by Konami. It was developed by the same team that developed Elebits, another Wii exclusive.[1]

The player takes control of the main character of the game, Dewy, a young water droplet imbued with the power of the Tree of Seven Colors, who has to set out on a heroic journey to reunite the tree's lost magical fruits, and save his land and its inhabitants, the Eau, from the hands of the evil Don Hedron.

The U.S. version of the game contains advertisements of Nestlé's Aquapod brand of bottled water.[2]

Gameplay

The game features seven worlds with puzzles and enemies. The Wii Remote will be utilized to control Dewy and his surroundings. The remote is held horizontally and tilted to move Dewy around the screen. The D-pad can be used to either heat or cool down the environment, causing changes in Dewy's state. Heating the environment will cause him to turn into a cloud of steam and allow him to strike enemies with bolts of lightning. Cooling the environment will cause Dewy to turn into ice and freeze his surroundings. The Wii remote can also be moved in a fanning motion to create gusts of wind or side to side in order to create earthquakes.

Part of the plot of the game involves rescuing Dewy's Eau friends. For the first six worlds Dewy can find 100 in each of the four missions of each world, bring them to a total of 2400 through the game, and must battle a boss in the fifth one. After completing a mission, a grade is awarded to the player regarding not only how fast it was accomplished, but also how many Eau were rescued.

Edit Mode

Dewy's Adventure features a level editing mode that allows players to create fully customizable levels featuring different landscapes, puzzles, and enemies.[3] This feature was also included in Elebits (Eledees in Europe and Australia), the previous Wii title by Konami.

WiiConnect24

Dewy's Adventure is one of the many titles to feature WiiConnect24 utilization. The feature will allow gamers to share their custom made levels with friends (as in Elebits), and tips will be sent to the player via the Wii Message Board should they fail to defeat a boss.

Plot

Dewy lives in a mythical fairytale world protected by the Tree of Seven Colors. One day the evil Don Hedron attempts to cover their world in darkness. However, Don Hedron and his Dark Water are repelled by the Tree and the fairies of the land. After a long period of peace, Don Hedron returns one day. The Tree of Seven Colors soon becomes ill and is unable to protect the land as he once did. With hope fading, it puts all of his remaining strength into Dewy, the only one who will be able to free the world of the evils presented by Don Hedron, like he did 1000 years before.

After finding the six fruits of the tree of seven colors, Dewy gains access to Don Hedron's space. While fighting minibosses in act 1 and bosses in act 2, Dewy finds a door leading to Don Hedron. The little drop encounters the villain and his pet, which resides on his arm and moves its head in diagonal ways. A fight ensues with Dewy emerging victorious. Don Hedron, however, is not done with him. He transforms into his true form, a large purple octopus with branch like "Hair". Dewy has the upper hand, until Don Hedron spits out some pink balls of goop, knocking Dewy out. Hordes of Don Hedron's minions proceed to finish him off, but the Eau arrive just in time to save Dewy. The final sequence involves the player flicking the wiimote up with the Eau every time they jump. This makes Dewy recover after some time. He leaps in the air and, using the power of the seven colors, transforms into a large gold ball and presumably sacrifices himself to transform Don Hedron into a magnificent tree. One of the Eau looks up at the tree, ending the game in a cliffhanger, because Konami never made a Dewy's adventure 2. The song during the credits is "Rainbow Smile".

Characters

Dewy: The main character of the game. He resembles a blue drop with rounded feet amd a turquoise head. He has black eyes, a small mouth and a long antenna which ends in a blob of water.

Eau: There are 6 types of Eau, Mushroom Eau in Groovy Grassland. They are orange and whitey yellow with a mushroom cap on top of their heads. Jungle Eau are in Jolty jungle. They have yellow bodies with red waists. They have green leaves on their heads. Icy island Eau resemble pink eau with sheep skin. Clammy cave Eau resemble green see through eau with spike like triangles on their heads. Restless ruins eau resemble Eau made of a cactus with a cactus flower on their head. Volatile volcano Eau have black heads and red waists. They have sombrero like rocks on their heads.

Don hedron: The main villain of the game. He is purple and he has 2 forms. His first form resembles a purple humanoid with a beard made from presumably bubbles. The character viewer states that he creates followers from his beard. He had a large crown on his head with 5 thin lines on it. On each of these lines, there is a large ball. The symbol on his belt resembles the same one that appears before each boss battle. He wears a sharp necklace around his neck. This does not do anything in battle. He is armed with a staff, which he can use to attack Dewy when his pet jumps on it. His pet resembles a purple bird with arms, legs and no wings. It has 3 strands similar to Don Hedron's. Before the boss battle, Don hedron is seen stroking it while saying "A thousand years ago, you sealed me away. And for that, you will pay dearly.". Once Dewy beats Don hedron, he gets angry and becomes a purple polluted tree with 2 tentacles. He also has many small tentacles on his underside. These tentacles act as his feet. Once he is turned into a tree, his small tentacles have become roots and his "Hair" has become branches with loads of leaves.

Development

Dewy's Adventure was developed alongside the Wii title Elebits. Both games were produced by Shingo Mukaitouge, who headed a team of 30 members for both games.[1] Mukaitouge states that the most challenging aspect of development for Dewy's Adventure was adjusting and programming for the Wii controller, as the player controls the environment rather than the protagonist.[4]

Reception

Famitsu magazine gave Dewy's Adventure a 31 out of 40.[5] GameSpot gave the game a 6.0 praising the temperature system, boss battles and charm, but criticized the broken tilt controls and in-game advertisement.[6] Official Nintendo Magazine had the same complaint, but gave the game an 84%, praising its charm, difficulty and high replay value.[7]
