While the free camera movement in Scribblenauts is very useful, the camera snap-back "feature" that brings the screen back to Maxwell after a few seconds is rapidly becoming a fan-favorite complaint. Here are some tips on wrangling it:

  • If you're examining an area, or watching a fight, hit select or tap the identify icon so the camera will freeze in that area. NOTE: This is unfortunately unavailable on the start screen.
  • If you're moving things around in that area, train yourself to either hold that direction control, or occasionally tap one of the directions a tiny bit just to refresh the camera. You only have to do it every few seconds, and it becomes somewhat natural.
