It is more adventure based then the other Scribblenauts games. The main goal is to collect starites and starite shards by solving puzzles and riddles by creating objects using Maxwell's magical notebook and travelling through a series of open levels. Each level has its own missions and puzzles that Maxwell must complete and solve in order to earn starites and starite shards. Collecting ten starite shards creates a single starite. There are a grand total of 106 starites to collect.
