The Scribblenauts series is one of the most unique to come along in years, so it’s delightful to see it make its debut on iDevices. Scribblenauts Remix is a best-of game, combining the highlights of the first two Nintendo DS titles (along with 10 new puzzles) and the offering a wonderful mix as a result. Veteran players know the drill, but newcomers to the game will be astonished at the wide variety of ways they can solve puzzles. (It is, in fact, just as fun to play with the game’s dictionary to come up with ideas as it is to solve the puzzle.)
Some of the puzzles are tough, but an integrated clue system will help people along. The real joy in the game, though, comes from seeing how creative you can be in your answers. Climbing a ladder up a tree to get a star is easy and obvious, but it’s so much more fun to ride a friendly dragon to the top to retrieve it. If you’re not playing this, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
