In the third part of Scribblenauts, the player learns the backstory to the merry grinning hero Maxwell and his twin sister Lily know. The game is a side-scrolling puzzle games with an impressively comprehensive knowledge of the written word.
Each environment is littered with people who have problems, which the player solves by conjuring objects based on the predicament at hand.

The problem is, it's not actually worth it to be inventive. You have the ability to do so much with Maxwell notepad - Change the size, temperament and color of anything you wish - but that does not really matter. Applying adjectives to objects only really matters when the game outright tells you to apply adjectives to things, otherwise you're doing it for personal amusement. It also tends to leave the maps dotted with random junk, people, and things, which can lead to some wonderfully weird scenarios. Can you ride a whale while toting a harpoon gun? And invoking a deadly cartoon laser gun battle between God and Satan on a total whim never gets old.? Lucifer didn't even get to throw a punch.
Characters and elements from the Mario and Zelda games, and the results are equally nice and frustrating. Feeding Mario a Super Mushroom makes him double in size. Giving Link an Ocarina makes him call upon Epona. Dropping Luigi and Windwaker’s Ganondorf into a pit with Cthulhu, a sheep and half a dozen zombies just to see what happens.

Puzzles are not quite as pleasing. They are far too easy to solve, and as such, does not encourage users to get crazy with their thinking. Many puzzles require just one item to solve, and as such they don't truly challenge. Though only the beginning and ending sequences involve much in the way of plot development, the story its way throughout this adventure. Collecting starites from people opens diverse worlds to explore, and each time new stages become available, you see how close Lily is to becoming completely petrified.

Sadly, as entertaining as Scribblenauts Unlimited can be, it doesn't reach its full potential but is a mostly funny and intelligent puzzler. Scribblenauts Unlimited is the best Scribblenauts yet and a giant sandbox for your crazy imagination.

Score: 82 / 100

Loved the original Scribblenauts games on the DS because of their simplicity and ease of access; everything was at your fingertips. Scribblenauts unlimited attempts to build on this formula by addding the feature of editing items already in the game world through adding modifiers. Unlimited also adds the ability to store items in your backpack for later use. All nice features, but altogether clunky as the game loses its charm without the use of a stylus. Having to mouse entirely across the screen to spawn in an item seems like a hassle when the first time around it took hardly any effort to access the notebook. It's still good ol' Scribblenauts, and while I'd take the old level select systems over this "open world" approach, Sribblenauts Unlimited is fun play and a creative pastime. 8/10

Spawn anything you want do anything you want! It's a side-scroller Gmod! The Workshop gives limitless ideas too! "So Fun Much Replay Value!" As Doge would say.


10/10- "A game where Mario and Gmod had a baby"

I've thought the 2009 DS version was fun, but Unlimited is a big improvement!
Especially now with the object editor, you can create your own way of solving puzzles and playing the game however you want, you can even switch from Maxwell to other characters to play as, or make your own.
I know it may seem like more of a kid's game, but I would say it's a game for all ages really.

Who doesn't enjoy making pineapples out of thin air?
Scribblenauts Unlimited is a game of almost endless possibility, with level after level of new challenges. You can spawn items ranging from massive flying couches to (and I have done this before) social quilted Gilgameshes, or Gilgameshi, or something like that.

This game is fantastic, initially it may look quite childish but if you have time to kill and a horribly dark sense of humour you will find it hillarious!

Who doesn't enjoy feeding people to sharks, killing children with "seedy" houses, feeding school children babies and ahem riding giant babies.... so yeah get this game!
