Britt5091 Origins: Scribblenauts…answering life’s greatest questions.

Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.

Scribblenauts…answering life’s greatest questions.

September 16th, 2009

Ohemgee I am having way too much fun with this game.

If you’re unsure of what it is I speak of, get out from under your rock and do some research. Sheesh.

Anyway, I’m not too far into it yet, but I’d have to say my favorite level is 2-2, “trick or treat”. For those unfortunate enough NOT to have picked up Scribblenauts or haven’t gotten there, the level is as follows.

It’s Halloween evening and three cute lil trick or treaters with their black cat approach you and want either A) A trick or B) A treat.

Oooh the possibilities are endless.

Of course you could be a real sweetheart and create them a chocolate bar. I tried “Chocolate bar with razor in the middle” but that didn’t work.

On my first run through, I created a zombie, as I do in every level just because I’m a Z-Freak. Unfortunately Mr. Z ate and turned the trick or treaters into zombies. I then tried TNT; but the only thing that was successful at was blowing up me, the ground, the kids, their cat and the Starite.

Eventually I created a lame spider, scared them and won. But I keep revisiting this level.

The last time I played through, I created a time machine and was transported to the medieval era. I then created a moat for safety, climbed in, added a few zombies and watched chaos erupt all around me.

In the relative safety of my moat, it hit me. Now is the chance to answer one of life’s most agonizing questions that begs to be answered.

Ligers vs. Zombies.

Who would win?

Around 6 zombies were aimlessly shuffling about, and figured I would only need one Liger to take them all. The Liger charged the zombies, only to freakin’ die after a few bumps from the pusbags. Liger after Liger, all fell.

I decided to break out the big guns and introduced my undead friends to Mr. T-Rex. The T-Rex took out two or three zombies easily, but finally fell, as an image of dinosaur meat appeared in the zombies’ hands. Who would have known that dinosaurs or Ligers are no match for zombies?

Ah Scribblenauts — answering life’s questions one at a time.

So fellow bloggers, let’s talk Scribblenauts. Thoughts, impressions, greatest moments, you know the drill.

And share your epic stories if you have any!

Reading this post made me giggle IRL, and honestly it makes me want to fire up Scribblenauts. I forgot how much FUN that game was!

Unfortunately I never got around to finishing it because I sorta-kinda got too distracted with inventing epic battles between Ligers and Zombies and such. But being able to do that ALONE totally justifies the price tag.

Did you pick up Super Scribblenauts?
