Best Nintendo Games List – #37 Scribblenauts Unlimited
Developer: 5th Cell
Platform: Nintendo 3DS, Wii U
Release Date: November 13, 2012
To ability to bring an untold number of cartoonish creations to life within your game at the input of a descriptive piece of text will always be remarkable within gaming, especially if it plays accurately. Scribblenauts Unlimited perfects the emergent gameplay formula by allowing players to type things into existence not only within a mission or objective-based scenario but on an open world setting. Allowing Maxwell to will gigantic robots that shoot lasers into the game’s reality to fend off against the Cthulhu monster that you, yourself, created puts the power of imaginative design into the player’s hands.
It’s up to you whether or not you want to follow the storyline down to its core, or if you just want to ride on the NeoGAF logo off into the skies alongside some cute kittens as you search for life’s true answers. Outside of mature themes and licensing issues, the world is your oyster.
