Extensive Definition

is a video game for Nintendo's Wii console by Konami. It was developed by the same team that developed Elebits, another Wii exclusive.

Overview

The main character of the game, Dewy, is 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.

Gameplay

The game features seven worlds with puzzles and enemies. The Wii remote will be utilized to control Dewy and his surroundings. The Wii 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. Other special abilities are being developed. http://wii.ign.com/articles/760/760682p1.html
