The Aquaman Family in Scribblenauts Unmasked

I received an email from long time F.O.A.M.er Benton Grey, who bought the Scribblenauts Unmasked game and was impressed:

"I recently picked up Scribblenauts Unmasked, and I was totally blown away by the depth of the DC Universe present in this game.  I discovered tons of characters I previously only knew from your Who's Who podcast!  Imagine my surprise and delight to stumble across the likes of G.I. Robot and the Ghost Patrol! 

Anyway, I was also really impressed by the completeness of the Aqua Family in the game. All they were missing was the classic Aqualad (really, an inexcusable oversight when they include the likes of the Creature Commandos), so I created him and had to see the whole gang together. I thought you might enjoy these screenshots, including a rumble with the Aqua-foes! If you haven't picked this game up, you totally need to, even though you aren't a big gamer. It's a blast just to try to stump the game with DC characters and objects.  You'll be amazed at how thorough the are!"

As Benton mentions, I am not a gamer, so I never seriously considered getting this when it came out, though being able to play the entire Aqua-Family is awfully tempting. Thanks Benton!

Don't be too tempted. The number of DC characters presented here is staggering, but the game itself isn't very good. If you need an Aquaman video game fix, try Injustice instead.

Yay! Thanks for posting this, Rob. I still find that image of the whole Aqua-Family absolutely charming.

Despite that, Bleak isn't necessarily wrong, here. I paid $5.00 for the game, and I think I got my money's worth. It's fun and charming, but the actual gameplay isn't deep or interesting enough to be worth a much greater investment.

Still, where else are you going to see the Fisherman in a video game (other than my own mods, that is)?
