While my Xbox is off in Texas for repairs I’ve been giving my Nintendo DS some love. I tend to neglect my DS as I tend to focus my attention on my Xbox. I decided to pick up Scribblenauts over the weekend and give that a try. Popped it in for some playtime before bed and ended up glued to it for way longer than I had planned.
Scribblenauts is a side scrolling puzzle game that lets you create anything out of nothing to get the job done. You control the character of Maxwell through different problems that need to be solved. You can summon almost anything to come to your aid in your adventure. If a farmer need some animals just type COW or PIG, and there they are. Problem solved.
Simple as this might sound, not all are that easy. Sometime you do need your brain. I know I know, it’s a video game and you’re not supposed to need you brain. This game only make you use it a little to create fun new ways to solve your puzzle.
Now there are some rules when it comes to creating objects. They tell you right off the bat about profanity and trademarked items, they are no no’s. So get your mind out of the gutter. You can however make a dingo eat a baby!
There are so many things you can do and create in this game. It may be profanity free but you can still make some funny things happen. Explore every possibility.
