As you might have guessed, I love writing, and I love games, so it’s no surprise that a title like Scribblenauts is right up my alley. Imagine my glee then, when I discovered that developers 5th Cell are hard at work on a follow-up title, Super Scribblenauts!
Due in just a few short months (Autumn 2010 if you’re in the northern hemisphere), Warner Bros. are set to raise the bar set by the first title, expanding the innovations, upgrading the controls and giving gamers even more new features than they’ll know what to do with.
Maxwell returns, and you’ll use the stylus and touch screen to help him around, collecting more Starites awarded from all-new challenges and redesigned levels.
The first game sold more than 1.1 million units worldwide since its launch last September, and there’s no reason Super Scribblenauts won’t follow suit. I mean – last time, you could write any word, bring that item to life and then use that to solve puzzles.
This time, it’s pretty much the same deal – but you get to add adjectives to modify each object. If you don’t remember your grammar lessons, an adjective is a describing word, and can be used in Super Scribblenauts to change the colour, size, style or behaviours of the object. Get creative and use multiple adjectives to create some incredibly creative objects – “gentlemanly, flaming, flying zombies” were mentioned, as well as “blue, obese, winged elephants”. You thought your imagination was let off the leash last time – sounds like now it’s out of the park!
I do wonder though, how it would illustrate a one-eyed, one-armed, flying purple people eater… we’ll just have to wait and see!
