Sbribblenaughts Unlimited is one title that doesn’t quite describe this game. There’s no scribbling in this game, nor are there unlimited choices on what you can create.
In this game, you play as a boy who has the power to create a lot of objects. In order to create such an object, all you have to do is select “Use Notepad” then “Create Object.”
After that, you type in the name of the object you want to create, and presto – you have made something.
The goal in this game is to solve many puzzles mostly by creating an object to do something – like cook a steak, remove a boulder, tow a car, and so forth.
Another way to solve puzzles is to “add adjective” (that’s after you select the “Use Notepad”). Here, you can modify something on screen – make a person more buff, larger, or scarier – depending on what the puzzle is.
Each area has these simple tasks, and one or two complex tasks where you have to solve a group of three to five simple tasks to complete. There’s a lot to do in this game, and the puzzles are very inventive.
Some of the resulting scenes are funny (like seeing a guy get zapped by the Ark or seeing a prince turn into a toad). This is the best part of the game for me.
Your reward for these tasks are star like things you collect to save the main character’s sister from being turned to stone (sorry, sis). Even after you save her, you can still continue doing these tasks.
But this game has it’s limit on what objects you can create (though you can create a lot of different things), and sometimes there are puzzles that you might come up with a solution to that doesn’t work because it’s not a solution that the programmers put into the game.
And if you are not thrilled after an hour into the game, then you should get out – you’re going to get the same style of gameplay throughout the game.
Which is why I say you should rent Scribblenaughts Unlimited and give it a try before deciding if you want to buy it.
