When lightening strikes, and the power goes out, Kai has to capture colorful elebits to help restore the area's power. At the beginning, Kai doesn't care for elebits to much. He's jealous of them because he thinks his parents like them more than him. Each mission requires Kai to capture a specified number of watts to get the power back. However, he has to be careful when and how he captures the colored elebits.
This game has been a great hit with our 8 year old. When I asked him what he liked about it, he said everything, but particularly the strategy of trying to figure out when and how to capture the elebits. He has enjoyed the story line and has not had any problems with the game play. As parents, we like that it's a good, clean, fun game. It's pretty much a first person shooter, but without the violence. Like our son, we also like the fact it makes him think. It's not just mindless entertainment. He actually has to think and use reason and logic to get the most watts from each capture. While the game seems to be a little too difficult for him at times (mainly he can't find enough elebits to complete a level), with help from a walk through, he's been able to complete most of the levels. For us it's been a great purchase.
