  1. The Adventures of Kai and Zero lacks the innovation of the original Elebits, but the obstacle-laden gameplay is engaging throughout and there are some fun boss battles for players to look forward to as well. It’s not the brightest adventure on the DS, but it does have enough juice to provide some kid-friendly enjoyment.

    Nonetheless, Elebits is a cute, enjoyable diversion. [Jan 2009, p.90]
  3. The second Elebits makes its way to a new platform with a new focus, but it still makes for a very fun adventure.
  4. The second Elebits game is profoundly different from the Wii version: it’s a bi-dimensional adventure game, which tightly follows the rules of the genre. It is funny and various, even if the riddle resolution may seems too easy for the experienced videogamers. Technical system is functional, but the art design lacks imaginativeness and “courage” (it seems a “standard fantasy tale” concept). Dedicated to young gamers.
  5. Catching the Eledees is motivating, despite the dated graphics and the uninspired music, but fails to reach the quality level of the Pokémon games.
  6. 60
    Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero is a fun DS game worth experiencing. Sure, it has a few problems, but the enjoyable gameplay will keep you busy for hours.

    This game is fun to play the first time sometimes hard and very much puzzles when doing it a second time it is getting easier but still fun to play.
