I’ve been wanting to play Scribblenauts for over a year. Thanks to my friend Mark, who is letting me borrow it, I get to play it!
The game is for the Nintendo DS, which I’ve owned for several years now and love. I guess I’ve always had a thing for portable game systems ever since Pokemon, and my days of playing Echo the Dolphin on a Sega Game Gear. Anyway, Scribblenauts came out about a year ago, and I haven’t gotten a chance to play it until this winter break.
SO. The object of the game is to collect a star in every level. Usually there’s a puzzle you solve, or you have to move through a level to get to the star. The point of Scribblenauts is that to solve puzzles or move, you can enter in one of like… a million things they’ve got programmed into the database. But no vulgarity, profanity, or racial slurs. Fair point, Scribblenauts.
(It didn’t understand “poop” when I tried to use it.)
It’s awesome. I summoned a bear to take care of this bee and piranha that were preventing me from retrieving a gardener’s misplaced flower, then the bear turned on me and killed me. I also use jet packs all the time. I tried to set the bee on fire with a flamethrower but ended up burning down the gardener’s green house. Oops.
That’s only in one of the first levels! I’m probably going to leave reeeal soon to play it. I’ve heard you can make God fight a T Rex while riding a skateboard wielding a chainsaw. That’s pretty awesome.
