One of the most purely fun games that we’ve ever played is coming back, given a party game makeover. Say hello to Scribblenauts Showdown.
Brimming with imagination, Scribblenauts collides with yours in order to solve puzzles by typing a word and conjuring that as an image, which does your bidding – or doesn’t. It always amazed us some of the words that it had covered.
Now it’s being given a head-to head competitive edge in Scribblenauts Showdown, with modes for one to four players.
The main draw is ‘Showdown’, which is demonstrated nicely in the video down below. Play your card, have it trumped, trump that and so on.
More than 25 new minigames are promised, which will also be playable if you don’t have any friends handy to whomp with your wordy wisdom.
A couple of favourite things return, from the ability to design your own representative Scribblenaut through to the ‘Sandbox’ mode, where creativity gets to go nuts with often unexpected – and rather funny – results.
Scribblenauts Showdown is slated for March 7 release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch.
