Your Monday Brain Teaser

Super Scribblenauts
I’ve just received an early morning email challenging my ratio of coffee to awakeness. Awakeness might not actually be a word, but like I said, it’s early.

Anyway, this morning’s brain teaser asks what you get when you conjure up a fierce windsurfing werewolf, a purple flying fish, a yellow plaid bus and a small zombie riding a polka-dotted hot air balloon.

My first guess was the type of nightmares I have after eating a big sandwich before bed, but the correct answer is in fact Super Scribblenauts – the DS followup promising to bring the magic of adjectives, which allow players to change the color, size, style and behaviors of the objects summoned via the power of the word.

Said image is mildly amusing, but as with the last release I’m looking forward to seeing what scenarios all of you come up with. I’m also incredibly happy to see the word “Super” return to game titles.

  1. Tried the original and, while fun, the “point were you want to walk to” and somehow limited words you could use didn’t really make me buy the game. It seems the sequel will address those concerns so I’ll download a demo when available and see if they can get my money the second time around.

  2. Was anyone really going to conjure up a Windsurfing Werewolf? I like the idea of the game… but it seems like a whole lot of hard work making up things that the average person will never see. Or do they give you a list of possibilities?

  3. You could even go with a red windsurfing one-eyed werewolf if you wanted. It makes it so you don’t have to write down the EXACT thing the game will recognize. Might work out for the best.
