In Scribblenauts the player uses the NDS touch-screen to help his character, Maxwell, acquire the starite in each level by solving a series of puzzles. In order complete each puzzle, players will use the stylus and notepad to write down the word for any object that comes to mind in order to reach the goal.

Scribblenauts is a completely original gameplay experience that anyone can play, offering fun for all ages with two styles of gameplay and more than 200 levels.

In Scribblenauts, players use the NDS touch-screen to help their character Maxwell acquire the Starite in each level by solving a series of puzzles armed with their stylus, notepad and imagination. Players jot down the word for any object that comes to mind in order to reach the goal. Every object behaves as it would in the real world, and players can combine countless objects to create completely new scenarios. Every level has more than one written object to use as a solution, opening up the game to endless replay.

In Scribblenauts, players advance through ten worlds, each with eleven puzzle and eleven action levels for a total of 220 challenges to complete. Each level has a “par” for the number of objects suggested to finish the level. Beating a level with under par, earns “Ollars”, the in-game currency, which players can use to purchase new levels and music.

Launched in September 2009, Scribblenauts for NDS has reached blockbuster status and sold more than one million units worldwide.
