Gremlins Gizmo





Gremlins Gizmo 


I never thought I would use Gremlins and family friendly in the same sentence. Those little devils are vicious. But Neca has published a Wii game that families can enjoy - Gremlin's Gizmo. This game is based all around Gizmo. You know the happy, fun, clean, and kind creature from the movies. The one you don't get wet or feed after midnight.

Gremlin's Gizmo is part mini game compilation and part pet simulator. Parts of Gremlin's Gizmo remind me of Kinectimals. And you know how Kinectimals scored here at Family Friendly Gaming. You can play with Gizmo in some things, and then play mini games in other things. Kids will love the costumes. Gremlin's Gizmo includes many costumes for Gizmo to try on (editor: forty in all). They have to be unlocked first. So this Wii game will make you work for it.

Just like Kinectimals Gremlin's Gizmo has a bar. As you play mini games, and play with Gizmo points are added to this bar. At specific intervals things are unlocked. This can be another room, certain mini games, costumes and more. The Gremlins will make appearances. They try and scare Gizmo. So it is up to the player to shoo them away.

There are some real special moments in Gremlin's Gizmo. Like when he hugs a teddy bear. This is the kind of thing that warms the heart of the most stringent Scrooge around Christmas time. Gizmo has great sounds that enhance these moments. Gremlin's Gizmo is a kids game that has depth to some of the mini games that parents will enjoy. The train mini game is a great example.

I was so happy when I unlocked the car racing mini game in Gremlin's Gizmo. But after playing it I was disappointed with the touchy controls. This is the only mini game that I had a problem with. The rest of them control as I would have hoped. Gremlin's Gizmo is a sleeper hit that families should take a good look at.

Gremlin's Gizmo teaches families to take care of their pets, and spend time with them. This same concept can be brought across to members of the family. Parents need to spend time with their children. Siblings should learn to spend time together as well. I am very thankful that I was asked to play and review Gremlin's Gizmo on the Wii. I am curious to see what Neca has in store for families next year.
