  1. Konami's willingness to put the Wii's controls to good use without making a gimmick-laden game pays off once again - Dewy is great fun, if slightly infuriating for all the right reason. [Dec 2007, p.78]
  2. Konami has done a very good job in creating another cool and likeable hit for kids with a Wii.
  3. Dewey is a little over the top for older gamers, but a little too complicated for really young gamers. Either way it provides a decent amount of fun and a very unique take on your average water droplet.
  4. Dewy's Adventure lacks the focus of a dedicated puzzle game or platformer, but to its credit, it is the only game that has tried to put those genres together. The developers pursued a risky experiment, and the results are sometimes frustrating.
  5. It's a disheartening slurp backwards when compared to "Eledees," but there are enough unique ideas here to warrant a rental when it comes out in the UK. [JPN Import; Nov 2007, p.46]
  6. Although it seems to be designed for a younger audience, it feels best suited for veteran gamers that struggle to find the challenge and difficulty of games from the past. If you belong to the last category you might be thrown off by its childish looks. If you belong to the first, you might not react well to its frustrating moments. [Jan 2008]
  7. The poor camera work and awkward controls work against the player, leaving them with a frustrating experience few will have the patience to put up with.

    With a friendly concept design this game invites you to go through many levels with great challenge. I'm a hardcore player & i think With a friendly concept design this game invites you to go through many levels with great challenge. I'm a hardcore player & i think this isn't an easy game. Complex but intuitive playability justified to get more fun. Good replay value & innovative boss battles. Not too deep but quit addictive. I buy a game every week & this is one of those really few games that i've played constantly until the end. Recomended. Expand

There's a fair amount of levels, with plenty of unlockables. The ability to create your own levels and determine the amount of enemies within them is fun and great for multiplayer gaming. Very charming and fun for all ages although may be a little frustrating at times. Expand

    Not very good at all. Too childish / easy for anyone over the age of 12. Arguably too hard for anyone under the age of 12... You tilt the Not very good at all. Too childish / easy for anyone over the age of 12. Arguably too hard for anyone under the age of 12... You tilt the remote to move around, so the few children I've seen play this game over-exaggerate the movements and lose quite quickly. I can't recommend this game at all - the gameplay is simple, repetitive and boring. Marble Madness and Mercury Meltdown are both far superior to Dewy. Expand

    While I love the graphics and the idea for the gameplay itself, as an adult I do not like this game, and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Even on the easiest setting it still too difficult. Disappointing! Expand
