Last year, a little game called Scribblenauts arrived on the scene and wowed and amazed players. This year, Super Scribbenauts is on the show floor to give players more objects, new possibilities, and an incredible amount of fun. At the same time, they are keeping the charm and basic formula of the first title.
Scribblenauts is a DS game where players type in a name of an object to help get past a given obstacle. Developers have been hard at work to improve the gameplay and resolve the complaints some players had with the first game. Instead of relying on a few words to help you complete your objective, Super Scribblenauts, players will be forced to dig deep, into the games' massive vocabulary, and use words other than God, Jetpack, car, and airplane to get through the level. The main way they are accomplishing this goal is to give players new objectives to complete. For example, we were shown a vampire. To get past them you had to do multiple things like hit them with fire and then douse them with Holy Water.
So how were they able to do so much against a single vampire? Super Scribblenauts adds in adjectives along with the vast number of nouns in the game. These can also be emotional so you can make things happy and sad. With this addition, you can really make use of those creative powers that were stifled in in the first game.
Want to control our main hero, Maxwell, with the d-pad instead of just the stylus? In the original Scribblenauts, this was not possible. Not anymore with Super Scribblenauts. You can move left and right and even jump with the d-pad now. This will make the game so much easier to control and get rid of one of my biggest complaints against the original.
Players can also look forward to earning currency in the game, ollars, to purchase unlockable items, gain up to 50 different avatars, and more. Scribblenauts is not just more of the same--but an even better experience than the first.
