Super Scribblenauts is an upcoming emergent action puzzle game in development by 5th Cell and to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for the Nintendo DS handheld game console. It is the sequel to the Nintendo DS game Scribblenauts.


Template:Seealso Super Scribblenauts is a side-scrolling action-oriented puzzle game that requires players to collect objects called "Starites" by inputting certain words, such as "ladder" or "fire", in order to collect these objects. While in the original Scribblenauts players could not use adjectives in their words — for example, they could not summon a "flaming bear" — one of Super Scribblenauts's new features is the ability to add characteristics to objects, such as a "spiked refrigerator".[2] Players control the main character, Maxwell, using either the touch screen or the Nintendo DS's buttons.[3] It also includes a hint system as well as a level editor.[2]

5th Cell revealed there would improve the physics from the previous Scribblenauts, and fix the controls, as many have complained about the game's incredibly imprecise touchscreen movement system.[4] A better level editor was also told to be implemented for the sequel, which will allow the player to make levels from scratch and to make puzzle levels, as well as make action levels like in the first game. The company is planning to release the game on October 12th 2010.


Super Scribblenauts is being developed by 5th Cell, and will be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.[1] While initially, Super Scribblenauts was announced for the Nintendo DS, and Personal computer in a press release by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment,[citation needed] it was fully revealed in Nintendo Power, which listed it as being exclusive to the Nintendo DS.[1]

  4. [1]...Give me advanced controls and let me turn on D-pad control for Maxwell so I can get him to do exactly what I need him to do. Nothing's more irritating than to set up something hugely elaborate with multiple items in a level, only to have the guy "accidentally" screw up the plan by tripping over your hard work...
