Yeah, upon first reading it I thought that too, however given that ESRB doesn't actually play games it was probobly 5th cell who decided to tell them that you could attach steaks to babies.

I bet they sent the ESRB description in like a mad lib, and that's what they filled out.

Originally it said:

Rating summary: This is a puzzle game in which players navigate a series of traps, puzzles, and enemies to collect stars scattered throughout the colorful levels. Players have the ability to summon different objects by writing/typing in the word (e.g., TOY, VEHICLE, ANIMAL) and watching it come to life. If multiple words are entered in a sequence, different whimsical scenarios can be triggered: a VEHICLE can be used to jump over a NOUN; a LARGE MACHINE can clear away a SEA CREATURE; and VEGETABLE can be fed to WILD ANIMAL. Players can elect to summon "cartoony" versions of bats, bombs, guns, and flamethrowers. These types of items can be used to destroy objects or even other summoned items (e.g., a BLUNT WEAPON can be used to hit an animal; FOOD can be attached to a NOUN to attract lions; PROJECTILES can be lobbed at a man). These triggered animations are minimally depicted and are usually accompanied by popping, musical sound effects; bright, star-shaped flashes; or small puffs of smoke. If players wish to, they may type in the word vomit, which causes a beige-colored lump to appear on the screen.

Other platforms is one thing, but I see this working nicely in other forms in general. Like a platformer with obstacles, or a point-and-click adventure. I mean, once you have a database of pretty much every object out there, you can't stop utilize it :p You have a huge responsibility now 5th Cell ;)

I just love the implication here, too--I'm sure you only need the steak to attract lions, so the reviewer was clearly attempting to get the lion to eat the baby.

ONM's list of the words they tried. I'm sure you'll notice a few weird things.


http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=101929378099



Evening chaps and chapesses, Chris here!

As promised, her'es the list of words you asked me to try in Scribblenauts and the results.

First of all, here are the words that DIDN'T appear in the game. It's worth bearing in mind though that many of these words are either not objects, not in the dictionary, trademarks or rude, so they really weren't meant to be in there in the first place anyway. Here are the ones that didn't make it:

PERPETUALITY (not an object)
INTERNET
SANDBOARD
DELTOID
SHOVELWARE (on Nintendo? Are you mad? lol)
ANTIMACASSAR
MISANTHROPE
PLUMBOB (not in dictionary)
GLITCH
ANTIDISESTABLISHMENTARIANISM (not an object)
COULROPHOBE
BOOBS (not an object)
JEDI (trademarked)
ONM (not in dictionary)
MEANING OF LIFE (not an object)
DS (trademarked)
HAMMER OF THOR (not in dictionary)
DANCING BANANA (not in dictionary)
USB STICK
RAPTOR JESUS (not in dictionary, potentially blasphemous)
SHOOP DA WOOP (not in dictionary)
*******
ANNUAL
LEG WOUND
RUPEE
RUDOLPH

Now then, here are the words you suggested that ARE in the game:

SIBERIAN HUSKY
WALLPAPER
ACTOR
DESERT
GOGGLES
BANDANA
FINGERLESS GLOVES
SKI LIFT
FLANNEL
VACUUM
PEPPER (both the condiment and the vegetable)
COUCH
BANDICOOT
FLAG
HOSE
NAPPY (you can put it on him)
WATCH
TATTOO (makes a sheet of stick-on tattoos)
MUSHROOM
BOMBARD (makes a cannon)
SEISMOMETER
LOBSTER
MAGIC EGG (same as a normal egg)
EMO
DEATH
LIMBS
STARITE (but it's a fake one)
MAGIC
EVERYTHING
UNIVERSE
C4 (input CFOUR)
MELON
JUDGE
JEWEL CASE (but makes a Jewellery Box)
SD CARD (but makes a playing card)
CANVAS
SOLAR SYSTEM (but makes a star)
GALAXY
PISTOL
LED
RICKROLL (makes Rick Astley appear)
PEANUT
CHEERLEADER
LASER SWORD (but makes a normal sword)
GUITAR
GLASSES
AISLE
TREBUCHET
I CAN HAZ CHEEZBURGER (makes a cheeseburger)
PENGUIN
KETCHUP
STAPLER
DICTIONARY
SCRIBBLENAUTS (makes the orginal character design)
5TH CELL (makes the developer's logo)
LOLWUT (makes his head huge)
MORON (makes a dunce)
CHIMPANZEE
PENCIL
PAINT
BERET
SHOTGUN
CHAINSAW
TENNIS RACQUET
COMPUTER
GAS
SYNTHESIZER
CHEESE
REMOTE
CREDIT CARD -
SCISSORS
TWEEZERS
LAWNMOWER
FISHING ROD
INLINE SKATES
WASHING MACHINE
CARAMEL
STARFRUIT
PENNY FARTHING
TOAD
TSUNAMI
ABYSS
SPY (makes a Ninja)
LOLLIPOP
MONEY
TOAST
CAMERA
BABOON
ZOETROPE




Weird things:
-Internet isn't it? But it was in the E3 build!
-lolwut was confirmed in, but the description he gives is weird
-Spy is a Ninja? lame
-Solar System is just a star? lame
-Plumbob isn't in the game, despite that legendary text message sent out at E3!

Cool stuff:
EVERYTHING ELSE HOLY FUCK

Yep, and people pointed out it was misspelled. I'd be surprised if it's in.

Sad that misanthropes aren't in the game, though. Looks like JACKSON MISLED US. :O

I'm also surprised about Internet, since I almost thought that was in one of the videos, or at least impressions. *shrug* :)

Internet WAS confirmed in some preview. It spawned a little computer apparently.

Also, I compiled a list of "legit" failed words, which came out to only 4:


INTERNET
DELTOID
ANTIMACASSAR
RUPEE

Rupee being the currency of India, of course.

The rest failed due to being not an object, trademarked, not in the dictionary, or too specific.

Hey Jackson, it's been awhile since you were bugged with an asinine question...maybe that means you're more willing to answer this!

When you say 220 levels, do you mean unique levels? So far every preview - including the recent stuff put out today - says that there's 10 worlds. We know that The Garden has 11 levels, so it's safe to assume each world also has 11 levels...making 110 total, which is exactly half of the 220 value.

Other worlds could have more, but even in screenshots of the "late game" worlds we've never seen a level numbered above 10 or 11, and each world would need to have at least 23 levels each (to hit 220), which seems high.

I guess I'm worried that because 110 is exactly half that means there's going to be some new game mode which has you replaying all 110 levels again only with some minor alteration. And to me, that's definitely not 220. Are my fears warranted, or are the 220 levels unique?

Yeah, and in the latest pictures from Gamestop we can see that the Gardens has two "sheets" of levels to choose from in the Level Editor, and each sheet has room for 6 levels.

Further, like I said, despite seeing pictures of some of the later worlds (indeed, I think some of them are from world 10, the Mish Mash level) we've never seen a level numbered higher than 11.

I'm just hoping Jackson can calm my fears!

There are action and puzzle levels. There's probably 110 of each.

If i am not wrong, he mentioned that the 10 levels you see in that E3 demo build were from the various worlds, thus there is a possibility that will be more than 10 levels for each world. =/

You know, it wasn't at E3, but I think you're right.



Here you can see all puzzle levels, with a little explosion thing in the corner...which corresponds to this...



As you can see, the icon next to the level number is an explosion, not a puzzle piece

So it seems the game does differentiate between the two modes, and yeah, it's probably 11 levels each per world.

neat.
