Save Lives With A Single Line Drawing In Scribbles! Unlocked

Scribbles is a physics based game where you must help the creatures get to their container by drawing lines on paper. There are all kinds of obstacles to keep them from their destination, and you have a limited supply of ink. If you draw carefully, they will all be able to make it to their new home.

Players start off each level with a bottle of ink, an eraser, an “undo” button and a half-a-dozen little round creatures.
