Scribblenauts Unlimited Fire Panda
It was pointed out to me earlier today that despite talking quite a bit about fire pandas in my review of Scribblenauts Unlimited, that I failed to show a single screenshot of my extensive research into the subject.

Rather than simply capture some screenshots, the following video will give you an opening tutorial into how to set your own pandas on fire, as well as a means of allowing them to live longer and more productive lives by spewing fire instead of simply burning from it.

As always, you can catch said knowledge bomb below.

Review – Scribblenauts Unlimited

Review Scribblenauts Unlimited
There’s a monument at Edwin’s farm, a simple stone statue meant to commemorate the short life of Duchess, the firey panda. My intent was to create a fire panda that could conceivably shoot fire and fly, but a misinterpretation of words saw Duchess come to life while also on fire, at which point she proceeded to burn her little hearts away and die. I suppose such mistakes are bound to happen when granting God-like powers to people like me.

Despite 5th Cell’s attempt to directly furnish players with as much quirky narrative potential as possible, the enduring charm remains the accidental stories waiting to be discovered as players push against the walls of the test chamber here.

I’d like to suggest that how far your imagination can test those limits against the necessary restraints that bind the game onto a disc will determine the long term value being offered, but that’s not entirely true. Scribblenauts Unlimited is more about testing how long players will persist in trying to do anything they are allowed to imagine, before surrendering to the demands of a game that necessitates more narrow actions than the seemingly open world of unbridled creation suggests.
