Scribbleanuts Remix

It took me longer than I'm proud of to make the connection between my fascination with Scribblenauts Unlimited, its predecessor being available on iOS and my iPad ownership. When it did piece together in my mind, I swiftly, and remotely, boarded the Scribblenauts Remix bandwagon.

The lack of difficulty associated with the series as a whole came up as a point of contention since my previous post; not for me, but it was espoused as a major drawback for the franchise by someone I know. I think that this is a drawback in the same way that I think the major drawback of Lego is that it is actually very simple, which is to say that it isn't a drawback at all. This is why the game works.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't enjoy some truly fiendish puzzles for Scribblenauts, but it isn't as though I'm not enjoying myself just sticking things together and seeing what works. My limited experience is that it isn't quite as 'unlimited' as the later title, but I would hardly start throwing around words like 'restrictive' or 'unaccommodating'. I've also come to the conclusion that it is probably a great game for anyone undergoing Englishification later on in life.

Scribblenauts Remix on iOS is only $0.99, and is "designed for both iPhone and iPad", so you might be hard pressed justifying not owning it.
