Scribblenauts: the most frequent questions and errors! You CAN have wings, steel boxes, attach things to the cage, and remove the hat.
Hmm, so you CAN remove the hat, and now it seems the rope holding you up isn't imprisoning you, but rather, it's saving you from death. So this basically means your goal is to cut one rope, not two. Quite the plot twist! And you can attach things to the cage, ala grappling hook, and though we probably knew that it's good to get the confirmation.
You CANNOT cool the lava in any way suggested thus far, use vehicles without drivers, use a hovercraft, or put things inside the cage
This is a bit disappointing as I hoping some of the suggestions (namely, liquid nitrogen or tsumani) would be enough to cool the lava. Seems like it's a static obstacle after all, at least for now. It also makes sense that vehicles without a driver will plop to the ground. I wonder if you have enough time to spawn a heli and toss a pilot into it.
The hovercraft comment is expanded a bit below...
More S/nauts: Cupid's not listening to instructions. He just floats. Hover things aren’t floating on lava. 'Floating platforms'? Come on.
Cupid isn't smart enough to know how to solve the level for you...that's obvious to me at least. Though I wonder if they mean they're trying to tell him to fire but he won't. The hovercrafts apparently need ground to hover off of, which I guess makes sense by most typical definitions of a hovercraft. And floating platforms don't exist and would be too cheesy. Edge agrees!
Finally, chains or ropes fixed to the steel blocks do not extend below Maxwell or the cage. No more Qs, there's plenty for you to go on now
There seems like a rather obvious solution to this problem, at least to me. If the ropes or chains don't extend beyond Maxwell and the cage then you could simply make more chains to attach to the end of those. And if THAT is not possible, then simply attach some intermediate object (such as another steel block) inbetween.
Alright, you heard them! No more questions. You have a lot to go off now, so set forth and solve! Win some Scribblenauts!
