30 Games in 30 Days: Day Two

Day Two’s review is just a quick jaunty commentary on one of my favourite games for getting an achievement fix.

Scribblenauts Unlimited is a short and sweet word puzzle game where as you explore the world and rescue your friends you come up with suitable words, which are turned into items – for example “huge angel wings” will result in a rather oversized pair of fluffy wings that can subsequently be equipped to fly you all over the level. For each level, you need to create a solution to defeat a monster, rescue a friend or gain access to a restricted area using creative and descriptive phrases.

This game requires you to explore your use of vocabulary, making especially good use of  adjectives and the desire to be a bit silly in this enchanting environment. The graphics are simple but charming and although by the final levels it can feel a little repetitive one of this games greatest features is the sheer number achievements you can get through Steam. When it comes to games like this I have a little bit of a completion complex, not so much worrying about completing the game itself as getting also those delicious achievements. I’ve nearly managed to get them all as well. Scribblenauts Unlimited

Scribblenauts Unlimited is not an immensely complex game, it does not require a great deal of strategy or forethought but it is really lovely to play, satisfying and it makes a nice change of pace from my usual standbys.

Russ says I should use a scoring system, as it makes this seem more like a professional review.

Scribblenauts gets a solid 4/5 from me 🙂
