This game just makes me happy when I play it. It's fun and I laugh a lot while I play it. Do you really need anything else from anything?

It's not a difficult game by any stretch as a simple story game of collecting stars to help save somethign from something with a lot of cool/cute art and object making. It lets you use your imagination to create an enormous amount of objects to just drop into the world and play with. Want a monkey? How about a GIANT monkey? You can make one and then ride it. Hilarious notebook? Sure. It will make every NPC that it passes by laugh. Create a Living Garden Gnome riding on a Tiny Goat. You can even create NPCs that will fight with one another, or even jsut play nice. Using adjectives in front of objects makes them even more interesting than they already are.

You can save objects you create in your backpack for easy access, you can get objects created by other Steam users in the Workshop with simple in-game menus and a couple clicks. Tons of user created stuff is amazing and hilarious so make sure to spend a good amount of time in the Steam Workshop for this game.

This is a Family Friendly game that anyone with a soul should play and enjoy. If you are a ginger, well we know you have no soul, but even YOU would probably be able to find some joy here.

It's an easy 100% Achievements game and they just take the time of finishing all the stars mostly and making objects they tell you to. Trading cards as well of course.

Fun and hilarious casual game for all ages!

NOTE: If you look at the credits and use the Developer's names to create in-game characters they will all appear in the game with some sort of special attribute. One dev NPC has the ability to turn every hat you put on them to spawn wings that you can take and fly with for example. There are a ton of these and it is fun to mess around with. You can view the credits at any time so write down some developer names and experiment in the game. :)

A great franchise adds another amazing game to it's collection! It's completely addicting and takes a good imagination to play. It's ultimately my duty to provide the fun because its puzzles rarely test my skills and knowledge. It's inherently fun just to mess around but that grows tiresome too quickly.

Imagine being able to create whatever you wanted just by writing it in a book. Now, instead of using this book to give yourself a flying rainbow llama, you use it to help people in need. This is Scribblenauts Unlimited, the third game in the Scribblenauts series.

You play as Maxwell, a young boy who has been given the gift of a magic notebook from his parents. Maxwell then uses the notebook to give a rotten apple to a hungry man, and angers him. The man puts a curse on Lily, his sister, who now slowly turns to stone. To stop this, Maxwell has to make up for his trickery by collecting Starites from people, to free his sister from the curse.

The gameplay in Scribblenauts Unlimited is basic, but it is obtained and used well. I was never confused by the controls or wandered around pressing buttons. The notebook feature is easy to use, and writing something with multiple meanings (say, 'bat') will bring up a menu to select which type of object you would like. There is also a backpack feature that allows you to save your favourite creations for easier access later, but I rarely used this feature as I created new and different things all of the time.

While Scribblenauts Unlimited is simple, its charming art style is colourful, playful and different to a lot of other games that I am used to. Playing the first two games on the Nintendo DS, Scribblenauts Unlimited combines the series-defining mechanics of the first game with the creativity and art style of Super Scribblenauts, building a game that is definitely one of the best puzzle games available on PC. While this game is definitely directed towards a younger audience, I couldn't help but pick up the third instalment of this amazing franchise.

There are no borders in Scribblenauts Unlimited. Unlike the first two games, Scribblenauts Unlimited is set it over 20 different locations, which when unlocked are accessible all the time, creating an open world to explore and invent wonderful contraptions and experiments. Never in any other game have I seen so much creative freedom.

To conclude, Scribblenauts Unlimited is a flawless addition to the series, and definitely a game that will consume a fair amount of play time.

9.8/10

This game is cute, clever, innocent and fun. My seven-year-old neighbor begs me to let him play some Scribblenauts all of the time, and I definitely love this game as much as him. It takes the already entertaining concept of the original mobile game and takes it way farther, with a sizable campaign which I am yet to beat. Just like the original, the puzzles involve solving problems by creating helpful items, and it doesn't get old!

I was skeptical about this game at first, since I got it for $4.99 in the recent Warner Bros. Interactive sale, but I was pleasantly surprized by how much fun it is! Give it a try...and when you do, make sure you try typing in Cthulhu.

SCRIBBLENAUTS GAME REVIEW


Introduction

I do not recromend this game. That does not mean it is inherently bad. Please read on to determine if you would like this game or not.I say this becasue I published a review of this game once before, and it received negative comments purely becasue I didnt like the game and other people did. it's your opinion. this is my opinion. That is all.

I aquired this game with a humble bundle a while back and decided to play it for a while. I didn't get far, I will explain why below. If you just want my overall view of the game, skip to the conclusion.

Negatives

Here are a few problems I had with the game:

1.Superman Syndrome
it's fun... for a while... untill you realise that you have the ability to create and manipulate almost anything you can think of without cost. I beleive you can even make yourself invincible.once this realisation sinks in puzzels become easy and boring. after around an hour of solving a few puzzels and creating giant death sharks and evil cyborg's It became a chore to even continue playing. you really have to create the challenge for yourself and I don't think a good game should do this.

2.The ability to create almost anything
The way you can create almost anything is by writing in a magic notebook. adding adjective's to change how the item works. e.g typing in shark will create a shark. typing giant shark will make a shark that is giant. the problem with this is that it isn't entirely accurate. sometimes a word that you think is more powerfull eup being less powerfull than you thought it was. confusing? heres an example (this may not be the case in game but this is an example of what sometimes happens with other words): typing gigantic shark may be smaller than typing huge shark. This can be a real problem because the game does get boring very quickly. add to that some slight annoyances and you quickly grow to dislike it.

3.Story
It's rubbish. at least in my opinion. It becomes evident that the game is designed for children. the story is basic and while puzzel games don't have to have a strong story, it really has nothing else to keep me interested since i find the puzzels childishly simple.

Positives

That was all the negatives, so here a few positives:

1.It's fairly unique
I for one don't know of anything like this game. it's mechanics are pretty unique and it has some good idea's going for it. i wish it had some kind of energy or mana bar that you spent on creating things, having a limited amount for each puzzel and infinite outside of puzzels. allowing you to mess around with the mechanics but adding more difficulty to the game to keep me interested.

2.It's a really good game... for children
As I have already stated the simple mechanics, story, aesthetic, puzzels and the fact that the main characters themselves are children, make it ideal for children. Infact if you ask me i would say it was designed mainly for children.

I really tried to think of a third positive to balance it out, but i really can't. but that doesn't mean to say that there arn't any.

Conclusion
In conlusion I would not recromend this game. if I was to give it a arbitrary score it would be around 4/10. However, if you were planning on buying this game for a child, under the age of around 9-10, then I would recromend it. i do think the game has some good idea's but i disagree on their execution. I would much prefer it if they did have some kind of balance so you can't create almost anything imaginable with no consiquences. like the energy bar I mentioned previously. It is comparable to Garry's mod in its ability to spawn anything in at the click of a few buttons, however how fast does sandbox mode on garry's mod get boring? quite fast, garry's mod has numerous gamemodes to enjoy, its also in three dimensions and allows for greater creativity when building things. For example, in garry's mod you can weld multiple items together and give them all different properties and allowing for more customisation. garry's mod also has a multitude of online modes to allow the user to create random stuff with friends, making it infinitely more fun. So in a way it's kind of like a 2D poor mans garry's mod, and thats not a bad thing, but If you plan on getting this game, wait untill it is on sale as I do not think it is worth it's normal retail price.

I think that this game has a great conscept and is fun to play.

It's like the original scribblenauts game but you can get unlimited creations. Maxwell and his sister were spoiled kids, their mom and dad were rich. They bought a magic notebook and a globe of the world. The notebook enabled them to create anything they wanted, and the world globe allowed them go to any place they wanted. One day they were out and saw an old man, so went up to him. They gave him a rotten apple, but the old man was a wizard and bespelled Maxwells sister with a curse, gradually turning her into stone, every day it gets worse. Maxwell is sent on a quest to save his sister. They learned that Maxwell has to collect various starites, but the only way to obtain a starite is to make people happy.

Best game ever! Teaches creativity, English to non-native speakers and gives everyone so much fun. You can even make Cthulhu ride a giant fly! Honestly! That has to convince you!

Basiclly like all the other Scribblenauts games, if you ever played those.

You can make whatever you what, wherever you want.
You can also do missions which you help other people by creating stuff.

So, in short, a puzzle game and sandbox game combined. Lots of fun!

I would give this game 7/10
