Scribblenauts lives on with an all-new release for the Nintendo Switch. It's the Scribblenauts Mega Pack, a convenient collection of two of the best Scribblenauts game for one fair price. Here's everything that's coming as part of the Scribblenauts Mega Pack.
What is Scribblenauts anyway?
Scribblenauts is an original IP handled by Warner Bros. Interactive. The games let you type in the objects and people you need in order to satisfy the objectives you've been given. You can even alter the appearance, shape, and capabilities of the things in the game world by typing in a list of adjectives for them.
It's equal parts puzzle and platformer in that regard. Need a bicycle with a rocket propeller attached to it? Or perhaps a pink fire truck and a bunch of rubber bands? Figure out what you could use to solve the puzzle, write it, and watch as your will is done.
What you get in the Scribblenauts Mega Pack?
A "Mega Pack" sounds pretty epic, but what exactly comes with it? Well, you get two great Scribblenauts games, and that's pretty much it. That may not seem like a lot, and if you were expecting more then you should curb your enthusiasm just a tad.
Regardless, it's a nice collection of two very unique games that's worth your attention. The Scribblenauts games offer challenge, intrigue, and creativity in the same package.
Alongside the base games, folks who buy the Mega Pack will be treated to some all-new content which wasn't available in previous releases. Read on for a breakdown of what you're getting from each title.
Scribblenauts features a 2D side-scrolling open world. You control Maxwell, the hero with the magical pencil and notebook who has been tasked with solving all the puzzles which have been ailing the world. Here are all the new things coming in the Mega Pack's version:
- Online sharing of user-created objects.
- Two-player mode has been updated.
- A new sunflower-style text entry system.
- A new Zed Zeppelin level featuring sky pirates and crew members.
- A new Land of Sweet Hyperbole level features a drivable candy car and interactive candy neighbors. Yum.
Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure
This is the mashup game we've always wanted. Scribblenauts gets a nice infusion of DC comic book heroes and villains. You'll assist heroes like Batman, Superman, and the rest of the Justice League up against classic villains like The Joker, Lex Luthor, and Sinestro.
The premise of the game remains the same, but you'll see these characters and objects from the DC world drawn in that charming Scribblenauts style. The game also features locations like Gotham City, Metropolis, and Atlantis. Here's what'll be added for the Mega Pack's version:
- A new Titans Tower location, which is under attack by the demon Trigon.
- A new Belle Reve location, which is the headquarters of the Task Force X.
- Hundreds of new DC characters, objects, and costumes.
Two great games, one great price
Scribblenauts Mega Pack is launching for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Sept. 18. You'll get this nice package for just $40.
