In Scribblenauts, what techniques can I use get across long gaps such as pits or lava? I can't seem to get any bridges that are long enough to solve some levels.

Pole vault? (Disclaimer: I haven't played this game!) – YellowMegaMan Mar 21 '11 at 0:03

How about flight? The following items will give Maxwell the ability to fly:

  • Wings
  • Jetpack
  • Magic Carpet
  • Flying Broom
  • Backpack Helicopter
  • Winged Shoes
  • NeoGAF

Disclaimer: I've not played the game, but flying sounds like a winning formula for gaps

In the first Scibblenauts, some of these only give you limited flight time; you're often better off with a flying mount like a pegasus or pterodactyl (or helicopter or UFO but that stuff is big). In Super Scribblenauts I think all flight is unlimited, though. – Shinrai Mar 21 '11 at 14:44

You might try some flight items, like Wings, Jetpack, Winged Shoes or a flying mount such as Pegasus, or a Pterodactyl.

You could also try attaching a number of balloons or kites to Maxwell, and then just jumping over the gap; you will be able to jump much farther with enough of either attached.

Alternatively, you can also create a bunch of building materials and attach them together with glue or tape; Flagpoles work quite well for this.

There's also an item I THINK called plains which is basically just low, long grassy hill, that will just stretch across gaps that everything else won't quite reach. You could try that as well.

In addition to the various flight techniques (Wings, Jetpack, etc.), the longest bridge I've been able to create in Scribblenauts is by using "Drawbridge".
