In a surprise move, Warner Bros. has just released Scribblenauts Remix on the App Store. The Scribblenauts series originally appeared on the Nintendo DS in the form of Scribblenauts and Super Scribblenauts. Remix contains 40 levels from those two games, as well as 10 levels unique to the iOS version. The goal of each level in this puzzle/platformer is to grab the starite– but how you go about doing that depends on how creative you’re feeling. The game is available here for $4.99.
You can summon nearly anything you can think of into existence in Scribblenauts Remix, so the gameplay hinges on your creative brain power. For instance, if a starite is in a tree, you can type in “axe” to conjure and axe that you can use to chop down the tree, bringing the starite down to your character’s level. Or, if you want to be a little more bold, you can type “helicopter” and hop in it to fly up and grab the starite.
As in Super Scribblenauts on the DS, you can even use adjectives, so you can write “giant helicopter” if you’re feeling bold. While the choices aren’t infinite– don’t expect to be able to summon genitals– your options are astoundingly vast. (Note that we’ve only played Scribblenauts on the DS, but we’ll have a review of the iOS version up as soon as possible).
Scribblenauts Remix is a universal app that uses iCloud to sync your save between all of your iOS devices, which is pretty cool. Check it out now if you want to exercise your creative bone, or wait for our review if you want to exercise caution.
