About Scribblenauts Remix

Scribblenauts Remix is a game that lets kids, and their parents, create multiple unique solutions to problems by summoning different creatures and objects by typing out what you wish to create. There are 50 levels available and you can finish each one using a wide variety of approaches. Your child is only limited by their own imagination, which she is encouraged to use extensively, and her spelling skills, which will be improved significantly through playing the game.

Teacher Review

Scribblenauts Remix could be great springboard for kids to create their own puzzles complete with scenarios, hints, and a library of objects. A uniquely open-ended experience, Scribblenauts Remix allows kids to imagine solutions and try them out by spelling out solution words. 

The app presents a variety of colorful, brainteasing puzzles. Kids type in words to conjure up objects, then use those objects to solve the puzzle. For example, in one puzzle, players need to get a star off a tree. They can summon an ax and chop the tree down, or create a ladder to climb it, or type in "jetpack" to fly to retrieve it. Even if they don't arrive at the "best" answer, if their chosen object works, they can solve the puzzle and move to the next.

The tutorial covers how to handle controls as well as how to use the write mode effectively and responsibly (no suggestive material or vulgarity) but not how to think through solutions. While some puzzles are quite challenging, like the last requiring spatial reasoning and detailed hint interpretation, others are limited and defined narrowly by hints. For instance, one puzzle simply asks for constellation names; another asks for a drink of water. Several adjective modes help kids delve into the next part of speech, but they seem to be limited to basic colors, size, and materials.
