A Fun Game, Yet a Step Back for the Seriestaythib | Nov. 18, 2013 | See all taythib's reviews »
Scribblenauts is a very deceiving game. The graphics look like they are made for children, but allow for much deeper mechanics to surface. Puzzles must be solved by putting together any combination of words that your imagination can produce and the game creates it. Unfortunately, unlike the older games many of the puzzles are overly simplified, meaning that your imagination doesn't have top reach very far to solve anything. In the end it makes for quite a short game, but a fun one nonetheless!
Creative, Improved, and the most diverse programming yet.cup99 | Nov. 14, 2013 | See all cup99's reviews »
This game has a fun and exciting soundtrack. You use your mind to think of objects that help solve the puzzles.Other than puzzle solving, you can just create something (anything) whenever you want. Adjectives added on to already existing objects are a new feature as well as a sort of "world map" I hope the newer versions will live up to this games standards!

The premise of Scribblenauts is to collect "Starites" to stop Lily from turning to stone. You start the game as Maxwell, her brother, however as you progress other characters become available. It is a puzzle game, and requires you to create or alter objects in order to solve them. As you help people, or do quests (which you'll see objects/people highlighted while using Starite Vision) you earn Starites which ultimately lifts Lily from her curse.
The graphics are cute and cartoonish - something that is suitable for all ages. The puzzles are amusing, so even the very easy ones are not boring, but there are a few that make your head scratch. There are so many objects in the game that you can spawn that the possibilities seem endless and sometimes allow for multiple ways to solve a puzzle. You can even go into an object editor and customize objects.
Scribblenauts is suited well for the casual gamer, or for someone who doesn't have much time to put into a game. You can easily pick up the game and play for 15 minutes if you're short on time, but you can also spend hours doing puzzles or creating havoc in the Scribblenauts world.
Don't let the kiddie graphics put you off!ogmonicker | July 20, 2013 | See all ogmonicker's reviews »
This game is a blast, and it requires you to use your inner childhood imagination. Within minutes of playtime I was amazed by how extensive is the collection of objects you can spawn, and how many adjectives you can add on to that. Before I knew it, I was solving puzzles all while riding a blue Cthulhu wearing a crown.
Even better, is the game's object editor. You can create your favorite celebrities, your favorite fictional characters, and even yourself! With the Steam Workshop, you can download the creations of others.
It's a great game worth a purchase, if you're looking for a sandbox-like experience. As long as you don't mind the gameplay being a bit dull and repetitive, you can sink several hours into it and get your money's worth. Not to mention, it's a great game for the kids.
A Big Fan of the series!jmillcag | June 30, 2013 | See all jmillcag's reviews »
I've played Scribblenauts on the DS and really enjoyed it. caught this on a good deal (everything green man does is good!) and was super happy with it. it has helped with my son's problem solving skills and reading but its enjoyable enough for me to play as well. I ploughed through it in a week or so playing off and on with a few "sessions" in there. Lots of content and I love the fact that you can solve everything in multiple ways making the replay value pretty high! i would recommend this game to any puzzle game lover!
