Good news everyone! The wonderful people from 5th Cell have decided to port Scribblenauts to iOS platforms. They’re calling it Scribblenauts Remix and it’s available oh… right now for five bucks, making this the best news you’ll read on the internet all day. Fact.
The original Scribblenauts made an exclusive appearance on Nintendo’s DS handhelds back in 2009. For those who don’t know anything about this unique puzzle game, you get to write/type in words that then summon objects into the game world to be used for solving the different levels. Obviously you’ll be summoning nouns, but you’ll have about 22 802 words to choose from. It all just works so well!
Super Scribblenauts, a sequel, got released about this time last year. The gameplay mechanic remained largely unchanged but this time 5th Cell added adjectives to the mix. This meant that your “dragon” that you summoned in the first game could now be an “angry pink dragon”.
The iOS Scribblenauts Remix is a combination of both games, meaning you’ll have nouns and adjectives at your disposal. It is not, however, both full games crammed into one but rather a collection of the best levels from each game. Scribblenauts Remix has literally just hit the App Store today (12 October) so if you’ve got an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch then go grab yourself a copy. It’s less than R40; that’s practically free.
Oddly enough, just yesterday I was wondering why 5th Cell hadn’t yet ported Scribblenauts to iOS devices. I wake up this morning and BAM! Scribblenauts in on the App Store. It’s like I’m part of the gaming industry hive-mind. Creepy.
