** The first game's controls. To make Maxwell move, you need to tap a point and he will move there. This is the ''only'' way to move, which doesn't work well. ''Super Scribblenauts'' added the option to move using the D-Pad or face buttons, which was ''very'' well received.

* ScrappyMechanic: ''Unmasked'' saddles you with a 50% penalty if you summon the same item or adjective more than once in one level. This can get annoying when you have to cycle through several different forms of flight mechanics, ropes and such to drag things, and so forth.

* ThatOneLevel: Constellation 8-5 in ''Super Scribblenauts''. It gets worse when you see that it's an ADVANCED level, meaning it's one of the levels you have to complete three times in a row using different words each time to get an achievement.
** To elaborate, the premise of the level is that you have to get the key to the gate behind Maxwell's starting position to free the princess. The key is on the other end of a hallway filled with boxes stacked on top of each other, chandeliers, and a sleeping dragon in the middle. Touching any object will almost certainly knock it down and wake up the dragon, and of course touching the dragon will have the same result. You also can't spawn anything to kill the dragon, as the dragon will wake up anyways. The only solution is to spawn wings or a similar object and carefully fly all the way to the key, then all the way back to the gate, which goes against the game's usual tendency to encourage the player to be creative.

* LoveItOrHateIt: Scribblenauts Unmasked. You either like it for enabling you to interact and play with nearly every DC Comics character, or you loathe it because of its stunting of creativity and lack of sensible logic when it comes to the puzzles.

('''MASSIVE SPOILERS,''' just in case it wasn't obvious.)
** The [[Creator/DCComics DC Comics]] crossover can and will introduce even the most hardcore ComicBook fan to at least fifteen characters that are completely new to him/her.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: [[https://youtu.be/fA2SYd6_kNA Big Tiny 1]]. It starts out sounding like an ordinary, upbeat EarWorm...that is, until you hit the 1:42 mark, where it becomes more dramatic.

* PolishedPort: The PC version of ''Unlimited'' has elements of both this and PortingDisaster. On the one hand, being able to type in words with the keyboard is a godsend. On the other hand, the user interface is basically unchanged from the WiiU version, there are minimal options for optimizing graphics, and if you get a framerate of less than 60 FPS, ''the entire game'' will slow down to compensate. That being said, it's still far from broken and quite enjoyable in the long run.
