type starite and find the real one
Back To The Future reference
Level 8-11 from the "Frontier" world is clearly inspired by Back To The Future. First, there is a "Mad Scientist" standing on top of a "Courthouse", where there are "Power Lines" connected from it to a tree. There is also a "Stormy Cloud" standing on top of the said tree. The hint is "Timing is everything! Get a charge at Eighty-Eight!", obviously referring to the 88 miles per hour speed the Delorian needs to hit to time travel. To complete this level, you need to get a vehicle to pass through the power lines. Use a monster truck or stick a pole to a car.
Befriend Aggressive Creatures From a Distance
To befriend (and in some cases ride) a dangerous creature, write LOVE BOW.
Now use that to shoot the creature from a safe distance and they'll become friendly.
BioShock reference
Level 9-7 from the "Dark Hollow" world is clearly inspired by BioShock. There is a "Giant" wearing a "Diving Helmet", resembling a Big Daddy, guarding a "Girl", called "Smaller Sister" in the hint (which is a reference to BioShock's "Little Sister"). Also, the level is designed as an underwater city, much like "Rapture" in BioShock.
Dealing with Roof Switches
Are you having trouble with those annoying switches on the roof?
All you have to do is spawn a balloon below the switch. The balloon will float upwards and activate the switch.
Easy Action Levels
To easily complete any action level, spawn a pair of handcuffs, and attach them to the Starite found on the level. Then, spawn a vending machine, and place it next to the handcuffed Starite. Attach the other end of the handcuffs to the vending machine, and it should give you the option to "fill" it with the Starite. Once the Starite is in the vending machine, simply drag it to Maxwell, and click it to empty it out. Note: This glitch should also work with other objects that can be filled, such as baskets.
Easy Advanced Mode
The game ignores adjectives you try to put when writing any word, so writing "Small Hat" or "Big Hat" will only be recognized as "Hat", and will spawn the same thing. The exploit is in the fact that during Advanced Mode, the game will NOT accuse "same word" if you type an adjective before the word itself, even though the exact same thing is spawned. You can clear a stage three times by typing "Wings" the first time, "Big Wings" the second time and "Small Wings" the third time, you'll simply get the Wings all three times, but the game will register 3 different words and will allow it. If you're feeling lazy, you don't even have to put in a proper adjective, since the game doesn't recognize them, simply typing "f Wings" will register as "Wings", the game ignores the "f" as an Adjective (even if it really isn't one).

So, you can type in "Big Hat" or "F Hat" or "S Hat" and it will all be registered as hat.
Easy Quick Destruction
Just try spawning a "Black Hole", which can destroy many things including high level enemies quickly. Be careful though as this can kill Maxwell and destroy the starite if either are too close to it.
Flying Techniques
There are multiple ways to attain flight in this game, here are the ones that I know.
  • Wings, obvious, just drag them onto yourself or whatever you want to be able to fly
  • Winged Sandals, like Hermes' sandals in Greek Mythology, allow you to fly
  • Jet-pack, the classic yet modern compact flying device, makes an appearance in the game
  • Pegasus, also from Greek Mythology, this winged horse is friendly and allows you to fly. He can also transmute things into items, for some reason
  • Reindeer, just like the ones belonging to Santa, are able to fly
  • Roc, the giant mythical bird, is one of my personal favorites,and it has a pecking attack
  • Planes, Helicopters, Jets, Choppers, Dirigibles, Blimps, Hot air Balloons, and Roflcopters are all flying machines
How to Ride the Dangerous Creatures
There is a way to ride dangerous creatures like the T-Rex. First summon food (such as meat) 3 times, let the creature eat the food and it should fall asleep after that. Wwhen it wakes up, you should be able to ride it like any other creature.
Indestructible Rocks
If you need to cross a lava pit, spawn a huge boulder. It never gets destroyed and it's lava proof.
Killing Vampires
To easily kill a vampire, create a "Sun". It will reduce any vampire to dust and also turn werewolves to human form. Alternately, you can use a "Cross", "Garlic", or "Stake".
Instead of using freeze ray or shrink ray, use magic so you don't have to shoot things, just drop it above them.

Freeze ray = Blue magic

Shrink ray = Shrink magic

Ray gun = Red magic

Medusa head = Stone magic

Black magic = turns people into enemies
Moving Stars Through Barriers
When a star is behind a barrier, use a rope or jump rope to connect the star to the barrier. It will usually fall through the barrier, or maneuver it so you can pull it through.
Other levels
Are you all done with the regular levels and got all those dollars? Well, I'll tell you how to find more level's! All you got to do is:
1.Go into any world EXCEPT the university.
2.Look in the bottom right corner.
3.Touch that zig-zag-like thing.
4.Complete the first level and all the others.
Ride On Most Any Animal/Monster
Spawn an animal or monster that you cannot normally ride. Type in "peroxide" and grab it. While you have it, interact with the creature and it should put him to sleep.
Click on the creature and it will wake up!
You can now ride it.
Spawn a mechanic next to a switch and it will activate it for you.

Getting the Starite past closed metal doors.
Attach a chain to the Starite at one end, and the other end to the other side of the door. If the door is horizontal, it'll fall through. If the door is vertical, put a fan next to the Starite to blow it through.
Glitches that will Freeze your game.
Here are all of the known glitches that will freeze your game.
- In action 2-4 put a large air vent beside the barrier by your left, the two bombs will start floating in the air and with some luck, bombs will start to fall endlessly from the large pipe chunk. If the bombs don't explode, there will be so many bombs that the game will eventually freeze, if the bombs do explode, then enjoy the fireworks.
- Throw a boomerang into the ground, while it's still in the ground click it, if done correctly, you should have a red boomerang in your hand and an X inside the floor. Unequip the boomerang, it will float. Put it anywhere and it will stay there. Put the boomerang high in the air. Attach a rope to it. The rope will fall to the ground slowly. pick the rope up. go away from the boomerang in the air. Unequip the rope. there should be one piece left, pick it up, and the game will freeze.
- In A6-11, using rope on the apples or lettuce and letting the zebras or hippos eat it will freeze the game.
- In the first game. Make a Rickroll then quickly drop Blue Magic on him. He will freeze, tip him over before he explodes. if you manage to do this, the game crashes.

- Put stilts on a mannequin and, you guessed it, the game crashes.
- Sometimes, when an animal with a saddle on it dies, the game freezes
- Go back in time and make a hostile animal. use cupid's bow on it, get on it and interact with a teleporter or time machine and the game will go into a black screen
- The first time you interact with a holdable instrument (Example: Kulinkitang or kayo), drop it next to you and very quickly tap it and tap interact. The game sometimes freezes
- Summon a Robosaur, but make sure it doesn't like you. Now put a saddle on it then ride it. Get a T-rex and fight them. Don't get off the saddle when the robosaur blows up and the game freezes.
- When you go to the panel with the avatar selection and the music, press the dark yellow box in the bottom right corner. The game will freeze.
Go Underground
First, go to the main playground (the one with the trees and crap).Then, type in CHI (short for "CHINESE DRAGON") and spawn it. After that,go to the far right end and rub up and down. You should then be underground. If you get off the dragon,you'll die instantly.
You can make Maxwell do the " Moon Walk ". Not the one in space the Michel Jackson one. Just move the cursor above his head and slowly move it back. sometimes he will run back words!
Strange werewolf glitch
Spawn a person other than a man (or dad, as the game also calls it).
Then spawn a werewolf and let it bite the person.
After this, spawn a moon to defeat the werewolf's.
This changes any werewolf into a man (even if the werewolf is a woman).
Surpassing the par bar!
When in a level (if you don't care about the level par) and in free mode, here's how to have as many objects summoned at one time as you want without that limit bar bothering you.

First summon a cloud. Then put a glue on top of the cloud. Then attach a large air vent to that glue, the wind blowing upwards. Move the cloud close to the top of the screen. Leave a big enough gap to put something on top of it, something about the size of a person.

Next summon a nuke. Put the nuke above the air vent and it'll float off the screen, even when not activated. Usually when a nuke goes off, everything dies and you start over again. When the nuke flies above the screen, you'll hear the explosion but you won't die. Instead the limit bar will go down. By two spaces. As you can imagine, you can do this as many times as you want to be able to place as many objects as you want and keep on giving yourself more space.

Be warned though, after about 30 objects the game may freeze and there may be glitches.

Easter eggs

Back to top
Big Head
Type 'LOL WUT' to spawn an oversized Maxwell head, which you can attach to any friendly creature and some not so friendly ones.
Bull in the china shop cheat

Flying on a horse
All you need is a war horse, any type of weapon, and wings. That's it but you should be flying on a horse.
Future Portal
Type in 'Future Portal', tap it a few times, and random things come out (like an alien or a monster) <img src="" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
Game Card
Write Maxwell's name backwards into the notepad (llewxam) and it spawns an oversized Scribblenauts game card. It has no practical use though.
Luigi? In Scribblenauts?
Luigi is in Scribblenauts. He shaved, so he has no moustache. To spawn him type MASON or PLASTERER. He just walks around. If you attack him he runs away. He is kinda useless, but it is a great laugh. Mario is in this as well, but some of his dress sense like his hat and shirt are wrong. Type in FARMER and you get a faux Mario. I am gonna submit more Scribblenauts cheats.
Pinkify things
If you spawn "Paint" or "Paintbrush", then equip them and use them on something, the thing you used it on will turn pinkish red!
You can use this on literally ANYTHING, even animals and people!
Plus it never runs out!
Have fun!
Scribblenauts Person
On your note pad type scribblenauts. For some reason you get an NPC spawn who looks nothing like anything else ingame.
Secret dinosaur land and another wierd place.
Type in "Teleporter" for a weird secret room. Type in "Time Machine" for another. Hope you have fun!
Staff Room
If you want to see the staff, spawn a teleporter and use it and then you find the staff. Have fun!
Tame dangerous creatures (no peroxide/food)
Type URANIUM and you'll get a small rock. Drop it on dangerous animals such as dinosaurs and dragons, they will sleep. When they wake up you can ride them like other creatures. It's the same effect as peroxide or feeding 3x, but you don't have to get near the animal. If you drop it on a human or an Edy the person will turn into a strange, friendly green zombie.
