Countdown to E3: Super Scribblenauts

10 Jun

Holy crap I am wayy too excited for this game. Now if you have a DS and have not played Scribblenauts, GO GET IT!!! It’s a puzzle game that allows you to write anything (no vulgarity so minds out of the gutter) and it will appear. Use the items you summon to complete challenges with the lovable character Maxwell.

What I have been reading so far, Super Scribblenauts improves upon the awesomeness of the first game. The first major improvement being the controls. Now when it comes to handheld games I am a big supporter of using the D-pad to move characters. I know we have a touch screen now but it’s really not ideal to direct movements. That was a big problem for me in the first game. Getting Maxwell were I wanted him to be was tough going with the touch screen. Super Scribblenauts will have D-pad for movement and B for jump. WOOT!

Next we have the use of adjectives. For those who failed English, an adjective is a word that modifies a noun and gives it more information.


Adjectives significantly increase the amount of stuff you can summon into the game. Whereas previously you could bring in a car, now you can call in an “undead” car, an “angry” car, or a “pregnant” car. Objects will react accordingly to their adjectives. For instance, that pregnant car will eventually give birth to a baby car. Oh, and the formerly pregnant car will now be a skinny car. Weird, huh? One of my favorite examples was when we summoned an undead bee. Zombies love brains, right? So we brought in an explosive brain. The undead bee couldn’t resist it.

So another thing added to the list of exciting things to come out of E3!

    I haven’t played Scribblenauts because I don’t have a DS, but the concept really impresses me.

    Is he in a small spotted flying bathtub? Anyway, I can’t wait to unleash an army of evil robot unicorns. That will be quite interesting.
