Super Scribblenauts is an action puzzle game developed by 5th Cell and to be published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The game is designed and developed for the Nintendo DS handheld game console.

Super Scribblenauts is the sequel to the Nintendo DS game Scribblenauts. It is a side-scrolling action-oriented puzzle game. Players have to collect objects called “Starites” by inputting certain words.

Maxwell who is the main character of Super Scribblenauts game is controlled by using either the touch screen or the Nintendo DS’s buttons. Super Scribblenauts is an incredibly imprecise puzzle game for the touchscreen movement system.

Super Scribblenauts will be launched in the early October, 2010. It is an interactive game that aims to fix the problem with innovative formula.

Super Scribblenauts is the puzzle game that requires players to solve challenges by conjuring up any object using a massive dictionary.

You can see the number of adjectives featured appears to be as astonishing as the amount of objects in Super Scribblenauts game.

About the Super Scribblenauts, an online game review portal – content.usatoday.com, writes, “The game also includes 120 additional puzzles for players to solve. The single-player portion features lead character Maxwell staring into the sky attempting to map out constellations. As he gathers stars from each level, they will create an image in the sky. Each of the levels is quite entertaining and attempts to take advantage of the adjectives regularly.

But perhaps the best addition is the option to choose how you move Maxwell around. In the first game, players could only use the stylus to move while controlling the camera with the directional pad. Super Scribblenauts now lets users reverse that scheme, moving Maxwell with the D-pad and the camera with the stylus.

The layout allows for more precise control, especially when tackling trickier platforming segments. Also, players avoid the stylus issues of selecting Maxwell when several objects are near his vicinity.”

In the conclusion, the portal writes, “So far, Super Scribblenauts appears to address the major issues with the last game, most notably the platforming controls. However, I’m curious how far developers go with level creation, particularly the potential to share levels. That could determine how successful this portable game becomes.”

Final Fantasy XIII Available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3

Recently, the most popular game – Final Fantasy XIII launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming consoles. According to the news.punchjump.com, “Amazon this week is offering a free Final Fantasy XIII Faceplate with the purchase of Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 Elite Final Fantasy XIII Bundle.”

Further the online news portal says about $13 offers also, “Retailer Toys R Us. on Tues. is offering a $13 gift card with the purchase of Square Enix Holdings Co.’s Final Fantasy XIII.”

In the review of Final Fantasy XIII, http://www.guardian.co.uk writes, “Every single fight, of which there are many, is scored with up to five stars. The critical factor is the speed with which foes are annihilated. This, together with the super-slick Active Battle System, controlled in real time by the rather elegant new Paradigm controls, hurls our heroes ever onward with unexpected pace. Which is not to say that this is a quick game. There are days, not hours, of gameplay here.

It is refreshing in this era of “interactive movies” such as Heavy Rain that a game can be so grandly and unapologetically linear as Final Fantasy XIII. You fight a bit; you watch a bit. Although clearly evolved, this is essentially the same spectacular hackathon it has always been, and with so many fans of the format, more power to it. Now, if only they could all just get along…”

In a series of questions-answers, Game Hunters asks Motomu Toriyama about Final Fantasy XIII, “What do you feel is missing in today’s video games and how will Final Fantasy XIII address this?”

In the answer, Motomu Toriyama says, “I think Japanese developers are good at creating cut-scenes, well-rounded characters and a good story — especially in RPGs — so we’re trying to do that a lot. But we’re really trying to add more detail behind each of the characters, more emotion, such as different kinds of love portrayed in the game — between families, best friends, lovers, and so on. Just a lot more subtle details here in this game that we really haven’t seen before in other games.”

The questions-answers series was published in Game Hunters category of content.usatoday.com.

In the recent time, Final Fantasy XIII is the most popular game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I have also a desire to play the game on my Xbox 360 gaming console.
