This game is cute and fun. You play as Maxwell that creates things to satisfy peoples needs. These are all simple and may not be challenging for the older folk. But this game is probably not geared towards adult gamers. This game is unique and really is a pretty cool idea. After a while the game just starts to be a little boring as the challenges don't really get any harder. I stopped about half way through as I have had enough. This game would be great for a child, but not too young! I rate this game a good 8 because it is unique, has great graphics, can inspire us to draw just about anything you can imagine to solve problems.

Scribblenauts Unlimited is a puzzle game based on writing words to solve basic puzzles. Example: guy wants to catch a fish, you write the word "fishing rod", then "worm". And thats pretty much all there is. Puzzles are very basic, although they do get a little tougher as you progress.
Positives: Very colorful world, nicely drawn artwork, nice implementation of the Wii U gamepad, humorous, some out of the box solutions
Negatives: Puzzles too basic, no story, some solutions to puzzles make no sense, sometimes a solution that that should work doesnt, can get repetitive
Overall: This is a great utilization of the Wii U, shows off the gamepad functionality (in fact, I mostly played it only on the gamepad, while watching football). Puzzles can be too easy and repetitive, but the nice visuals and light mood keeps you coming back. A good launch game for the Wii U.
I had a fun game expirience with Scribblenauts Unlimited. The levels flow and creativity is always showing. The only thing it lacks is a sandbox mode where you can test the amount of things you can make. Sandbox would make up for the easy levels. and make achievments easier.
