    GBAtemp game of the week- week #10


    It seems week #10 of the GBAtemp book game club is upon us and this time around we are looking at a wii title. For those new to these threads the general idea is each week we will pick a game or a collection of games to look at from one of the systems we tend to cover around here. The games can be a commercial game, some homebrew, a hack to a game and any of those might be games we reckon everybody should know about, some underrated games, a game with a good mechanic, a game with a nice attempt at a mechanic or something else along those lines. Although we always aim to make it fun we figure top games lists are everywhere and this in many ways is more about if not trying something new then trying to allow people to have a wide range of things to draw from.[/p]

    Dewy's Adventure on the Wii

    Our first named wii title in this series comes from people behind another interesting wii title Elebits (Eledees). Dewy's Adventure appeared during the first year of the wii and is noted for a control scheme somewhat reminiscent of a tilt controlled marble madness and similar things would be seen in parts of the Super Mario Galaxy games. Taken by itself though the game featured a bunch of interesting levels, a nice art design and some nice mechanics and although it drew some criticism for the controls and the resulting difficulty but that also meant it found favour among the "hard platformers" crowd. Sales wise it did not do brilliantly but you can pick it up second hand for not all that much which makes a change for these threads.

    Those of you without a wii looking for some world tilting action for the DS (especially if you have one of the motion packs) we suggest Marble[/p]

    I don't have words for how much I hated this game. It looked good and I tried to like it but it frustrated the hell out of me.

    The controls look really hard to use, I doubt I'd like this game.

    Kororinpa: Marble Mania was much more fun for the Wii, Dewy was ok but not nearly as much fun. I guess they are different game styles but to me Dewy seemed like some sort of adventure game tacked on to a Marble Madness frame while Kororinpa just seemed like a more fun version of Marble Madness.

    This looks like it controls like that one Super Monkey Ball game.
