Product Description

Amazon.ca Product Description

Scribblenauts is a unique single player side-scrolling action game for the Nintendo DS that challenges players to solve spatially oriented puzzles like no game before it. In it players use an in-game notepad/keyboard, as well as the touch screen and stylus of the Nintendo DS, to conjure up solutions to the obstacles placed in the path of the game's hero. Solutions are manifested in the form of literally thousands of items--many very unexpected--that are called up and take on a life of their own, resulting in puzzle-solving that is limited only by the player's imagination.

Gameplay
Based around 2D side-scrolling action and word play, the premise of Scribblenauts is simple; quite literally, anything you write, you can use and reuse in the game. Players use the DS' touch-screen and the in-game notepad/keyboard to help their character, Maxwell, as he moves throughout 220 increasingly difficult levels on his never-ending quest for the star-like "Starites." But it is not as easy as reaching up and plucking a Starite. Attaining them requires Maxwell to solve spatially oriented puzzles. To do this players describe objects via the notepad/keyboard, which in turn appear on the game screen and facilitate the starite making its way to Maxwell. There are literally thousands of items in the game, both utilitarian like ladders, ropes, cars and buses, to the outlandish items, such as invisibility cloaks, pirates and black holes. There are time limits on levels, as well as a limitation to the number of items that can be used per level. But regardless of these restrictions, the game is all about experimentation, imagination and endless replay value as players open their minds to the nearly limitless possibilities that are sure to make Scribblenauts unlike any side-scrolling platformer they have ever played.

My only complaint is the controls: Maxwell will sometimes move even if you don't control him to. Sometimes, it's unresponsive. If they fixed this problem, the game could have been perfect. Everyone is bought in by all this "You can summon just about everything" concept, and I love that too, but you have to admit the controls can be pure evil at times.

The concept for this game is very interesting, and for the first few levels it is very fun. But as the levels get more challenging, and more importantly as they get more crowded and have more moving objects, the limitations of the UI become very apparant. Half the time I fail levels it is because the game has done something unexpexted when I missed my mark by a pixel to the left or right. Objects also don't interact very naturally, and tend to fall or tip over on their own. Action points on objects often light up, but fail to properly attach. I've mostly given up playing this game, because I don't need to spend another half hour trying to attach a rope to a helicopter only to watch the character kick it down a hill instead of getting inside it. A little more thought and testing on the UI on this one would have made a world of difference.
