When Scribblenauts came out I was incredibly impressed by what I saw. For those of you new to the idea the game it’s a Nintendo DS game that lets you write out anything not copyrighted or vulgar and you use these to solve puzzles to get items called starites. So for example if a starite is in a tree you could write “ladder” climb the ladder and get the starite. It’s a fairly basic concept but it was fun and gets challenging fast with more advanced puzzles.
Super Scribblenauts brings it to a whole new level. The developers have fixed it so now you can use the d-pad to control Maxwell which is a lovely change. Everything has a visible life bar this time. Also instead of just nouns you have to use adjectives to solve puzzles. For example I can now write “giant ham” when I want to attract the attention of a lion and because it’s a so big he’ll eat it and put him to sleep.
It’s a really great game. I recommend it for anyone who wants to enjoy a bit of a challenge and try something new. The first is still a great game as and you certainly don’t need to play one with before the other but this one fixes some of the flaws of the original that were a tad annoying and takes the challenge up a notch with adding adjectives. I can only imagine if they come out with another maybe they will add verbs. Then puzzles will be a snap then.
