I wasn’t aware there was a Scribblenauts port for the iPhone or iPad, and was pleasantly surprised to find out there was one… and it was on an amazing 0.99$ sale. And after playing quite a lot, I must say I would have paid full price.
In Scribblenauts, you take the role of Maxwell, an odd-looking boy with a magic notebook. Whatever you write in it comes to life! Your role as Maxwell is solving puzzles, or enlarging your vocabulary, as you may see fit.
The database of objects and qualities used in the game is amazing. Just to put it to test, when given the task of filling an aquarium, I invoked a coelacant, a relatively rare fish (have a look at the Wikipedia just in case). Check, the game has it. Then I remembered this XKCD comic about the game and the Large Hadron Collider… And indeed, you can invoke the LHC and turn it into a black hole (which you can also get by writing nothing or black hole).
There are a lot of things to do in the free play mode: getting a ballista? getting a priest to bless stuff? ride a lion? get wings and fly? And so on and so on. You also have 60 levels to have a lot of fun with your friends, it is a very fun game to play with someone. And also quite a nice game for kids to learn new words.
Don’t miss it now it is for sale, but even if you have to pay full price, you will enjoy playing this fun (maybe it’s childish, but it’s fun) game.
