Scribblenauts Unmasked features over 2000 DC Comics characters and items

Scribblenauts Unmasked features over 2000 DC Comics characters and items

Where do you go after you've given players the ability to create nearly any object and modify it with nearly any adjective? The Scribblenauts franchise could have hit a wall with its latest release, Unlimited. However, this year's iteration breaks through that wall by enhancing its library with one of the most comprehensive compendiums of the DC Universe ever.

Scribblenauts Unmasked for 3DS, Wii U, and PC promises to feature all the DC Comics characters--and not just characters from the New 52. "Even characters that appeared in one panel in one comic in 1976" can be found in the game, Warner Bros promises.

Scribblenauts Unlimited review: adjective objectives

Scribblenauts Unlimited review: adjective objectives

Scribblenauts Unlimited is, simply put, more Scribblenauts. For newcomers, Unlimited provides yet another entry point to experience 5TH Cell's rather magical "write your own answer" gameplay. However, series vets will find that even the addition of adjectives can't inject much new life into a familiar experience.

How to create and share your own objects in Scribblenauts Unlimited

How to create and share your own objects in Scribblenauts Unlimited

The Wii U is launching on November 18, and while it is a momentous occasion for Nintendo, it is also a big day for 5th Cell, the creators of the Scribblenauts franchise. Scribblenauts Unlimited will be one of 23 available launch titles for the new console. The gravity of this opportunity is not lost on 5th Cell producer, Brittany Aubert.

The Scribblenauts series has become something of a staple on the Nintendo DS, thanks mostly to its touch-based control scheme. "We've utilized the touch screen on the DS for our keyboard, which is how players enter words and spawn creations," said Aubert. "When bringing Scribblenauts to a console, the GamePad just makes us feel completely at home. When we saw the Wii U, it was an obvious next step for Scribblenauts."

Hybrid review: fight and flight

Hybrid review: fight and flight

It's easy for game developers to get stuck in a genre rut. We expect that a shooter developer will make more shooters, an RPG studio will make more RPGs, and so on. The experiential knowledge that comes from having built a game before gives us faith that the team has the basics down. That's why stepping outside a comfort zone is such an exciting risk. It can infuse a genre with some fresh ideas, but it can also miss some of the basics. Both that advantage and downfall are present in the case of 5th Cell's Hybrid.

Scribblenauts Unlimited coming to Wii U and 3DS

Scribblenauts is coming to Wii U. In HD--which should be more than enough reason to give Scribblenauts Unlimited a whirl.

However, there are a number of new features. Unlimited takes the "create anything" feature to a whole new level, letting you combine words to create custom new items. For example, in an E3 demonstration video, a player creates an "Auto Mutt" by attaching wheels to a dog.

Hybrid closed beta begins April, sign-ups open now

"What is Hybrid?" That's the tag line Scibblenauts dev 5th Cell has been using for its upcoming multiplayer shooter for Xbox Live Arcade. Unfortunately, in spite of some new videos, we don't really have a great answer to that question.

Thankfully, that should change once the beta for Hybrid goes live at the end of April.

Run Roo Run is Scribblenauts dev's next

Given how clever the Scribblenauts games have been, it's hard not to pay attention to what developer 5th Cell has in the works. Their next game, Run Roo Run, isn't quite the imaginative "do whatever" kind of game Scribblenauts was.

Described as a "micro-platformer," Run Roo Run is similar to other "auto-run" games, like Canabalt. However, instead of running through a randomly generated stage for as long as possible, you will be going through one of the 420 pre-designed levels.
