Review: Scribblenauts Remix

Totally unique game of creativity, problem solving and unlimited imagination...type in any word and watch it come to life!

View on the App Store: Scribblenauts Remix - Warner Bros.

Features of Scribblenauts Remix:

  • Use your imagination to solve the problems with lots of different alternatives.
  • 5 worlds with 10 puzzles in each gives lots of challenge.
  • Great for children just learning to spell as it inspires and challenges them.
  • Playground option with 8 different worlds to play in, without any puzzles to solve.
  • It's so such fun to create anything from your mind and watch it come to life!

It is much harder to describe this excellently constructed game by Warner Brothers than it is to play it! Watch and be amazing as your child works out how to play it quickly and perfectly!

There are 50 levels to this game.  Each level has a problem or situation that Maxwell (or the other avatars) find themselves in, that needs to be solved using creations from your imagination.  Within each level you are given a scene with your objective. 

Click on the pencil icon and a screen will appear where you type in any word.  Whatever you type appears on the screen.  (If you don't get the word quite right or the is more than one variation alternatives will show up to choose from.) If you select an object that meets the objective a green tick mark will appear.  When you solve the puzzle your Avatar can collect his star.

2 other hints are available to solve the puzzle.  These hints can only be activated after a certain number of seconds to ensure you have really tried some alternatives before you use the hints.

You can skip levels and do not need to complete them in chronological order.

Once you have created an object click on it and it will give you available options for that object.
For example, if you create a 'friendly dragon' and click on it it may say 'pet' or 'ride'.  If you create any vehicle, such as a 'rocket' then tap it to bring your character into it and press on the area of the screen you want it to move to.  Objects and people interact with each other.  For example if you create a witch she will go around turning everyone into frogs!  It is possible for your character to be killed during the game if he comes across something dangerous, but you simply 'retry' the level or choose another one.

To delete your object drag the object to the X on the top right of the screen (it changes from the pencil when you get near it). There is only room on the screen to create a few objects at one time.

The 'playground' area has 8 different environments and is freestyle mode.  Here you can choose anything without the need to solve a puzzle.

10 out of 10!

Age Group:


Younger players can use the microphone feature on the keyboard (on Siri enabled iPad's) to speak the word rather than type it, although spelling it is educationally very valuable. Our 7 year old said 'Mummy I really want to learn to spell", which is the first time he has verbalised a desire to learn that for himself.)

Developers have recommended it as a 9+ as some of the content is a little highbrow for children younger than that, although our younger boy (aged 7) is our Scribblenauts Master! Reading Required.
