Scribblenauts sequel coming this fall

    S.Suikun Thank you, SPPf! :)

    According to the newest issue of Nintendo Power, a Scribblenauts sequel is indeed set to invade your DS by the end of this year. The original Scribblenauts was a delightful title that was widely praised for its creative sandbox and challenging puzzles. Yet a fair few criticized it for its imprecise control and physics. Well, developer 5th Cell has not only decided to do something about its problems, but beef up the entire experience. Unfortunately, no scans of the article are available at the moment (if I find any, I'll post 'em), but here are a few article snippets from some historically reliable sites:

    Nintendo World Report - http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/newsArt.cfm?artid=22703
    Personally, I'm delighted at the fact that 5th Cell is taking the criticisms of the first title to heart, as it really was a quirky game with limitless potential that was held back by a few annoyances. I still enjoyed the game, don't get me wrong, but I am overjoyed to see a sequel in the works so rapidly.

    Should of saw this coming.

    How are they going to use adjectives as words?

    As long as they improve the controls drastically, I may get it.

    Awesome. I was hoping for something like this.

    I think it'd work like typing in "Small Red Dog" and it'd make a small red dog, instead of just the basic dog that you'd get in Scribblenauts 1.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the improved controls. Scribblenauts feels kind of awkward to work with, especially when trying to get Maxwell to go somewhere. Fixing that and bringing new levels, words, etc. would make Scribblenauts formidable indeed.

    Also, working on making the massive bunch of words that make essentially unique-looking paperweights into something slightly more useful would be cool too. Maybe that's a little too much to ask, but I wouldn't mind if they did.

    I've never played Scribblenauts, but I heard that there were plenty of flaws in it. I might get this and just bypass the original altogether.

    Fantastic!

    I love Scribblenauts. In fact, I was playing it earlier today. I'm really glad this game is getting a sequel and it will hopefully iron out the flaws of the last game. The controls were a little annoying sometimes.

    With any luck, the improvements will be...well, improvements and won't add in extra levels of frustration.

    Scribblenauts could be fun, but ughh so glitchy and the controls.

    Phew, that's a relief.


    I never played the first, but didn't it use touch screen controls to move around? D-Pad will fix that. Although it's going to be annoying switching from D-Pad to touch screen constantly. I think I can deal though.

    ?
    Are you left handed?

    But yes touchscreen control was really annoying. The camera would arbitraily switch to MAxwell and send him into a pit when you just meant to move an object, etc

    No, but ya still gotta jump. It certainly won't be bad enough to worry about (anything sounds better then the original's...) but I've played platforming games where you had to constantly switch back and forth and it didn't leave me too happy.

    Enjoying your +1, weirdo?

    Let's hope that the sequel fixes the main problem with the first one. Mainly the fact that it sucked.

    Another new game/sequel to look forward to :)

    Adjectives eh? Things can get interesting, really interesting.

    Adjectives?

    Finally. I really wanted those in the first game cos I wanted a red hat and black jeans. It would also be great if we could get more avatars. I'm still satisfied playing as the robot.

    If you ask me I'm kinda worried about the whole adjective thing. They say they're adding 10,000 adjectives, right? And I think I heard a while ago that there was 4,000 sprites (not words, sprites) in the original game. Then that would mean that this game would have to hold 40,000,000 unique sprites. Don't get your hopes up too high.

    Er...adjectives? So, if you put in "Big Green Hamster" a big green hamster would come up? Yeah, it could be of good use. They could lower the sensitivity a bit too - I remember many a time when I moved Maxwell and he ran straight into shark-infested water.
     
  17. Skull-Kid

    Haha. Possibly.

    Most of the adjectives will probably be key words like "fast" and "slow" and it will be interesting to see how much of an impact it will make on the actual gameplay.

    I just knew somebody would pull that up. But that only covers one of the bases. They would need some other shortcuts as well, as not all of the adjectives are color. For example, they might need some sort of sprite magnification thingy to cover the size adjectives. (do they have those?)
