Super Scribblenauts :: DS Game Review
Let your creativity abound in Super Scribblenauts. Whether you want to draw a skinny purple cow or a fury green alien, the options for solving puzzles are endless.
Super Scribblenauts is the highly anticipated sequel to 2009’s Scribblenauts. The game retains the same premise as the first, but adds easier controls and unlimited adjectives. Players need to wind their way through a constellation of stars by solving puzzles. In order to solve a puzzle, the player needs to create new elements to add to the level, either by drawing the image or writing the word. Once you tell the game what object you want they will create it for you and place it within the level.
Connect the Stars
All players begin the game using the character Maxwell. After each level is complete the player is awarded with a Starite. As one earns Starites new puzzles will be unlocked and the starts will be connected to form constellations. If a player is especially creative in beating a puzzle they will also be awarded with merits and money. The money can then be used to upgrade to a different avatar (including a cheerleader and a cowgirl) .
Super Scribblenauts guides players through each puzzle with three different levels of hints. Every level begins with the basic hint, which lets the player know what type of objects they need to create in order to move forward in the game. If one becomes stuck, they can choose to pay to read the next level of clues. The more one pays, the better the clue.
As far as video games go, Super Scribblenauts is absolutely fantastic! In addition to dynamic new puzzles, Super Scribblenauts has greatly improved game controls. In the first game, players could only control Maxwell with the stylus pen. Now the game combines the stylus with the directional controls for much easier gameplay. Perhaps one of the best elements is the level of creativity the game allows the player to use. If you want to create a tiny pink polka dot hippo, you can do that. If you just want to create a dog, you can do that too. The more you put into the game the more you will get out of it.
