This is not exactly an action game. More of an strategic approach would be the way to go. I mentioned before that I pride myself on my vocabulary skills and cleverness with fitting words together like a puzzle, but here I was faced with literature obstacles that I nearly couldn't climb. As far as gameplay goes, not much here to describe or brag about.

There are so many things that you can create in the game. Unfortunately, fun gameplay isn't one of them.

Enjoy the more than 25 mini-games offered by Scribblenauts Showdown where the limits are only set by your imagination. Can you become more ingenious than your rival?

If you're a fan of party games, Scribblenauts Showdown might not disappoint you. It'll entertain player both young and old and at times, it can even serve as an educational title. However, it's lacking in content and due to this fact, it starts getting repetitive after a short while.

Minigames and party games need to feature plenty of quality content to stand out and sadly, Scribblenauts Showdown has neither. Other than a rather attractive art style, Scribblenauts Showdown offers nothing but a short and poor set of minigames, some of them designed without much into consideration, which are either dull and repetitive or frustrating. Hardly an experience to recommend to anyone looking for quick and fun moments with their friends.

And sure, the game tries to tie it in to the Scribblenauts franchise, but it misfires to an almost comical degree. This would be more funny if it didn't involve games I used to really love. There is the potential to bring Scribblenauts back, but Warner Bros. aren't the people to do it.

Scribblenauts Showdown is a fun game you can pick and and play at any time, but you may feel the novelty wear off without friends to play with. Despite this, Scribblenauts Showdown offers some great mini-games and game modes. It feels different to party games we've seen in recent times, but it's also pleasantly familiar.

Despite a quite brillaint look, the 27 minigames designed by Shiver Entertainment are meaningful and fun only for a couple of nights with friends. Unfortunately, they become soon a clumsy attempt to recycle well know mechanics in very superficial way.

As far as party games go, however, Scribblenauts Showdown might just be one of my new favourites. It's certainly going to be the new go-to videogame whenever friends come over. And I've been honing my skills, so they better watch out.

A simple and funny killtime... for a match or two.
