Game might be a tad juevenile, but who cares? You can spawn Angry Vengeful God and have him smite a Lawyer. If you are easily entertained, this is for you, and easy enough to not have to stress about.

Spent a weekend with a friend going back through and seeing how many problems can be solved by a Gun.

Discovered that spawning Maxwell (the player character) creates an Evil version which spawns random things, which can sometimes be hilarious.

Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man is a thing that makes people happy.

While you sadly cannot use the full potential of your imagination, calling supernatural forces to your aid in even the smallest of challenges is a more viable option than ever before.

This is a very unique puzzle game. The art is bright and colorful and the environments are fun and well drawn up. The puzzles are creative and interactive although they can be quite simple at times, especially once you find out what I like to call (Cheat items) these are items that allow you to do many of the puzzles with ease, one of these such items is Wings. Speaking of items, the amount of things you can type and create is insanely impressive and makes it so you have so you have a variety of objects that can help in each puzzle meaning that you may even solve the puzzle differently or with a different item then someone else did. Its very kid friendly but is also very fun as an adult and could even be something cool to play with you kid if thats what your looking for. Highly recommended as it is just a unique charming puzzle game that is very addictive, has loads to do in it and the art work is just gorgeous.

Yep, this game is cool. The beginning is slow bit but it gets better later. I will have to say that this game is only good for about five minutes of playing. ( But that's me).
Totally get this game. It plays good. Why not get it?

Met a boy who wants someone to entertain him.
Spawned a gladiator.
Boy not entertained.

0/10 realism

Then I spawned a joker.
Boy was entertained.
This is just a game.
Why so serious?

I have looked at this game for several time before I decide to buy this game on discount. Videogame is fun on itself, and importantly gameplay system is more creative than another games I have played before. Scribblenauts Unlimited expands my sense of curiosity about English language, and of course it helps me learn some words I don't even know before such as, defibrilator. On the other hand, level design of Scribblenauts Ultimate sometimes makes me feel it's harder to find what word I need to take in the gap. However this game has a 2D graphic, I guarantee if you like intellectant videogame, this game can offer you a ton of English language's knowledge and general knowledge that we should know as well.

I solved the majority of the hostile problems by calling in a "Giant Heroic Cthulhu".

The rest of the problems I tried to fix them as sarcastically as possible.

Someone is thirsty? Fire hose.

Want a birthday present? SURPRISE! It's a flying piranha in a box.

Clearly there will be a number of things you can't make, and things that will be repeats, the devs can't put in something unique for literally every words in the game.

But, the list far exceeds the original Scribblenauts.

I got this game on sale. myself. I'm happy with it.

*sigh* I so badly want to say that I reccommend this game...but I can't.

It's an enjoyable game. It's put together nicely. It has a good soundtrack and good art style, but the gameplay is what kills it. The solutions to the puzzles are either incredibly obvious or so specific that it takes far too long than it should to figure out. Also, some of the solutions are silly. For example: About mid-game you come across a guy who is looking for the Fountain of Youth, so you spawn the Fountain of Youth right before his very eyes... AND IT DOESN'T WORK. You're actually supposed to give the guy a MAP. "Okay, fair enough," I thought. "he wanted to FIND the Fountain of Youth, not settle for the cheapo Fountain of Youth that I was dishing out." Closer to the end of the game, however, you come across a Shepherd who has lost his sheep. So you spawn a sheep, and the Shepherd says something along the lines of "Nice try. That's not my sheep!" Fair enough. He's obviously a good Shepherd if he can tell whether or not the sheep belongs to him.. So, I figured it was one of those puzzles where the object I need is "hidden" somewhere in the level. After searching the place over about 2 or 3 times and coming up empty I decide to give the guy a map... and it works. Why on earth would you need a MAP to hunt down a SHEEP?

Also, the message at the end of the game is very VERY generic. Almost anticlimactic even. It's a good message, don't get me wrong. But it sort of makes it obvious that this game is intended for younger players. As such, it causes older players to hear it and say, "...That's it? THAT'S the big takeaway?!"

It's a solid game, but I can't say I reccommend it. Not at full price anyway.

However, if you decide to disregard the negative reviews and purchase the game anyway, here's some tips for you:

#1. Got an immovable object you need removed? If you can apply an adjective to it, give it the adjective "missing."

#2. If you're going to 100% the game, you'll need to complete the Object Shard objectives found in the pause menu. Some of these are VERY specific, so don't be ashamed to use a guide.

#3. Try to play for no more than an hour at a time. In my experience, if I played for any longer, I quickly became very annoyed with the game and stopped enjoying it.

Overall, the game is decent, but it isn't as good as I was hoping it would be. If you must buy it, don't do it at full price. $20 is WAY too much. $5 or under seems about right.

IDC how childish this game is, I will purposely play it just to figure out the most stupid, offensive or nonsensical ay to figure out someone's problems... Like feeding a starving village with an edible clown horde, or giving a kid who is trying to get past a bully a ridable Trex, making all of the male characters pregnant, or make everyone eatable and watch as every living being in the area tries to eat each other... ok those last two didn't help anyone but it is definetely worth playing playing and screwing around in. replayability is decent after a while has passed, just be sure to come up with even more stupid ways to figure out how to 'help' everyone :D

Product received for free
You can do anything in this game... Also, if the thing you want isn't in it already, you can make it in the object editor or check out the workshop to see other players' ideas! :D

Lots of items to create
Catchy music
High-definition graphics
Player-created objects

-Isn't truly unlimited
-Some puzzles are lame
