Gold Star Rankings

After you've completed a given puzzle, you'll be awarded a Silver Star on the puzzle selection screen to
indicate your success. However, you can get a higher ranking. Retrying the same puzzle activates Advance
Mode, which is a bonus challenge. You have to beat the same level three times in a row, and with different
objects each time. If you restart, you'll have to begin the challenge from the beginning. If you
successfully complete the Advance Mode version of a puzzle, you'll be awarded a Gold Star on the
selection screen.

Scribblenauts Easter Eggs

Hidden levels If you spawn a teleporter and use it, it takes you to one of three secret levels.
Time Machine leads to secret levels as well.

Scribblenauts Glitches

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, eventhough 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 "aaa Wings" will register as "Wings",
the game ignores the "aaa" as an Adjective (even if it really isn't one).

Easily Pass Some Action Levels Some action stages can be easily completed by spawning a pair
of handcuffs and attaching 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. This exploit is also said to work
with other objects that can be filled such as baskets.
