Scribblenauts Unlimited Conjures Up Unlimited Fun (PC) Game Review

Goodness. I’ve never had so much fun in a PC game in ages. Scribblenauts Unlimited for the PC (now available via Steam) further continues the adventures of Maxwell and his magical notepad which is capable of conjuring up items written on it. Yup, for those who are unfamiliar with the series or even the original game on the DS, basically, in order to complete objectives in the game, you’ll need to come up with items for either Maxwell or NPCs to use, just by typing the name of the items.

In addition to that, you can write adjectives to describe Maxwell, NPCs or even other objects. The game rewards both imagination and a really good vocabulary and players get to run riot in vast 2D levels (complete with an overworld) filled with NPCs who will need your help (and your magical notepad) in either simple “gimme-an-item” tasks or crazy scenarios such as tackling a zombie invasion on a fire station. It’s the latter that will be the draw to the game and I’m warning you, the game is chokeful with these.

The lack of any kind of inhibition on part of the game may be confusing to some at first (I took a parked car and drove it off a pier) but rest assured you’ll get the hand of things real soon. Crazy fun aside, completing tasks will earn you starites or at least shards of a starite, and starites unlock additional levels. Also, Maxwell has plenty of siblings (his parents may be Mormons, I don’t know, just guessing), all of which can be unlocked in game by completing tasks. Players can even choose to play as one of Maxwell’s siblings by switching avatars.

Offering up something different than the previous titles in the series, Scribblenauts Unlimited provides an “Object Editor”, which is the same tool used by the developer 5th Cell that will allow players to make, name, and then share their creations online.  These user-created objects can be created from scratch or by altering an existing in-game object.

Scribblenauts Unlimited provides awesome fun for both children and adults alike and one can liken it to a canvas with an unlimited palette, with someone else taking care of the drawing for you. Nineoverten.com rates Scribblenauts Unlimited at a 5 out of 5. The game is available for USD 29.99 on Steam for Windows PC. Check it out over here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/218680/
