The game takes place in a world where all electricity is generated by harnessing the energy produced by creatures known as Elebits. One day a large lightning strike causes the power to go out and the Elebits to act strangely. Kai, a ten year old boy who is the son of two famous Elebits researchers, decides to use his fathers capture gun to find and collect the Elebits that are loose throughout his house.
You control your character, Kai, through a combination of the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk Controller. You control his walking with the Nunchuks control stick and use the C and Z buttons for standing on tiptoe and crouching. The Wii Remote is used to control Kai's Capture gun, you point at what you shoot at and are then able to interact withthat object. For example, you can shoot at a doorknob, and then open the door by rotating the doorknob and pushing, just like a real door.
The game is divided into a series of missions, the goal of most being to collect a certain amount of Elebits within a certain amount of time, thus restoring power to the area. Later missions add even more challenges such as having collect Elebits without making noise or without breaking objects.
The Capture Gun
The Capture Gun is a very versatile weapon. It not only allows you to capture Elebits, but it is also the way you interact with every object in the game. Using it, you are able to pick up objects, turn doorknobs, open drawers, activate switches, etc. As you collect more of a certain kind of Elebits, the strength of your Capture Gun increases, allowing you to pick up larger and heavier items.
- In the first level a Nintendo Wii can be found on Kai's desk.
