Features

Features
The premise is simple: The player uses the touch-screen to help their character, Maxwell, acquire the star in each level by solving a series of puzzles. The twist is, in order to solve each puzzle the players use the notepad to write down objects that are used to reach the goal.

This game is all about experimentation, imagination and endless replay value. Think of any person, place or thing, write it down, and watch it come alive! Write Anything, Solve Everything!

Create Your Own Interactive Experience: Objects you write down in the game are only limited by your imagination

Innovative New Title from Leading Developer: 5TH Cell, the creator of the Drawn to Life franchise and Lock's Quest, has experience creating high-quality, innovative DS games.

Unlimited Replay Value: Use less objects to increase your score, or experiment with different objects for endless replay value. Write anything; solve everything!

Create and Share Levels Online: Share levels you create with the Level Editor via Nintendo DS Wi-Fi Connection.

Playground Mode: Play the entire game in a sandbox style right on the title screen

3 out of 5 eggsAmazing concept, poor execution

Pros: Open-ended 'sandbox' gameplay allows you to use your imagination to solve puzzles. Its a really cool idea, and a lot of fun when it works
TONS of levels and puzzles, lots of replay value

Cons: Does not work very well. Controls are frustrating, objects repetitive, many things just dont work well or like they should.

Other Thoughts: Scribblenauts bit off more than it could chew. Or maybe it did not spend enough time chewing! The idea of using any object (or animal, vehicle, even some deities) you can imagine to solve puzzles sounds awesome on paper. However, like others have said, the game is practically ruined by its awkward controls and repetitive items, among other things. It feels like the game designers spent all their time creating tons and tons of puzzles for you to complete, and not enough time ironing out the problems with the game mechanics. Things just dont work the way they should. You would have to be EXTREMELY dedicated to beat the entire game. In the months I have had it, I only got through about 30-40 levels (less than a quarter of the total amount, I believe) before giving up on it. If you are really interested in the game, try to grab a cheap used copy. Its fun to mess around with, but not worth the full retail price.

2 out of 5 eggsAn honest scribblenauts review

Pros: +Absolutely mindblowing selection of words: you can, in fact, summon almost anything.
+Some funny moments and some real WOW! moments.
+Cute little visuals function adequately.
+Large amount of levels to play.

Cons: -By far the worst controls I've ever had the displeasure of using in a video game, hands down and without a single doubt. Moving Maxwell is nightmarish, moving objects is clunky and the camera frequently snaps back to Maxwell.
-So many objects don't function how you'd like them to and some behave oddly, like not weighing enough to depress a simple lever.
-Bugs galore; Maxwell, if falling quickly enough through the air, will simply clip through a chain of ropes you've set to catch him in a pit.
-Many, many, many objects are functionally identical and you'll find yourself using the same (or essentially the same) 5-10 objects to solve every level.
-Generic, uninteresting, carbon-copy puzzle and action levels that fail to engage or at least hold the player's attention past the third or fourth world.

Other Thoughts: I had been looking forward to this game since the day it was announced in April by IGN. I was sorely disappointed and after wasting my money on Drawn to Life and Lock's Quest, and now this, I'm never going to buy another 5th Cell shovelware game for as long as I live.

Rating interpretation:
5/5: Great/Excellent
4/5: Good
3/5: Average/OK
2/5: Bad
1/5: Big Rigs Over the Road Racing

Avoid this game. Final Verdict: 2/5: Bad.

4 out of 5 eggsa clever game

Pros: It's a one of a kind game. The word list is astounding, and beyond that the interaction between the objects and the environment is better than I had expected. The puzzles are very fun, as so long as you are willing to use your own creativity.

Cons: The character movement in this game is terrible. I wished they had mapped movement to the directional keys, rather than using a point and click system.

Other Thoughts: Where the puzzles are quick but plentiful, this is a perfect game to just play while traveling, or procrastinating :D

4 out of 5 eggsAnother good DS title.

Pros: The vocabulary of the game is pretty extensive. The gameplay is just hard enough to make you have to think creatively, but easy enough for anyone around to just pick up and play.
Plenty of levels to play on, especially if you include "Action" mode.
Great for kids, teens, and adults alike.
Any game with Cthulu AND keyboard cat is a game to be reckoned with.

Cons: Getting Maxwell anywhere is a chore. He'll run where you don't want him to go if you aren't a wizard with the DS stylus, the game is too easy if you are playing to win, and the majority of the "odd" items in the dictionary are simply useless.

Other Thoughts: A must-have for puzzle fans.
