Codex Gamicus

Elebits is the first game in the Elebits series. It was created by Konami for the Nintendo Wii. It has a first person perspective, and extensively uses the Wii Remote's motion controls.


Elebits are tiny creatures that, in the game, serve as the worlds' energy source. There is no nuclear power or gasoline in this world, just Elebits. There are many different types of Elebits in different shapes, sizes, and colors, each possessing a unique personality. Dr. Ed and Dr. Ana are both world-renowned scientists that research these mysterious creatures. Their 10 year old son Kai, however, does not share their love of Elebits. In fact, he hates them. He believes that his parents love the Elebits more than him, because they spend so much time with them.

When a lightning bolt strikes nearby, the elebits begin acting strangely, and Dr. Ed and Dr. Ana leave to research it. Kai, left at home and unable to watch TV, blames the elebits and decides to capture them using his parent's capture gun.


The main mechanic of the game is the Capture Gun. Its primary use is to capture elebits. Point it at an elebit, fire, and the elebit is captured and converted into Watts (used to power electronics) or Power (allowing the Capture Gun to move heavier objects). Its other function is to move objects remotely. Point it at an object, fire, and the object will be able to be manipulated.

The game has 29 missions, 25 collect levels and 4 boss levels. Each collection level has four modes. Normal mode is the first type, which has the goal of collecting a certain number of watts in a time limit. The other three modes must be unlocked by finding Pink Elebits in normal mode. Score Attack mode makes the goal collect as many watts as possible in five minutes. Eternal mode eliminates the time limit and has a goal of finding as many elebits as possible. The fourth mode is a Challenge mission which has a different goal for each level, but it will be hard. Boss levels only have one mode with the goal being beat the boss within the time limit.
