Maxwell and his sister Lily, two of fourty-two children, are sent out into the world by their explorer parents. Along the road, they come across an old man who is begging for food. The siblings play a prank on the old man by creating a rotten apple, and giving it to him to eat, which enrages the old man, who puts curses on both of them, and turns Lily partially to stone. Maxwell now must gather starites to help his sister return to normal.
Similarly to previous Scribblenauts games, much of the gameplay involves the player creating objects by entering words into Maxwell's notebook. Unlike previous games, which feature a linear progression through levels, in Scribblenauts: Unlimited, Maxwell is placed into an open world where he must interact with NPCs in order to fragments and starites which in turn open up new areas. Maxwell has a new ability, called star vision, which allows him to see which NPCs offer starites.
