Super Scribblenauts

Posted by Jason Venter (September 22, 2013)

Before I received an assignment to write a guide for the second installment in the series, I had watched the Scribblenauts franchise with interest. It seemed like something that would be right up my alley, but I was going through a phase where I didn't like to buy a lot of portable games, and that kept me from pulling the trigger.

Eventually, when IGN offered me related work, I finally got to dip my toes in the Scribblenauts universe. As my Super Scribblenauts review will attest, I liked what I found. As someone who loves words, the basic concept appeals to me a great deal, and the team at 5th Cell did a great job of turning that promising idea into a solid puzzle experience.

With that said, there are times when the game can be a bit... obtuse. Fortunately, I've worked through all of the puzzles, and you can find teh solutions to each of them in the resulting Super Scribblenauts guide at IGN. I tried to go with some of the more interesting solutions, but you might be able to find alternatives that are even cooler. Therein lies the game's genius.

If you're playing a newer Scribblenauts title, you may still want to consult the guide, since a lot of the core concepts should still work even for the newest releases...

[Reviews] The Thin Man

A breezy sort of detective story that makes me wish Hammett explored these characters in additional novels.

[Reviews] The Glass Key

Takes Hammett's usual focus on murder and mixes it with a dash of political corruption, with mixed results.
