Every once in a while a game comes out that is a simple idea but very creative. One such game is Crayon Physics. It is even more amazing when you realize that the game was designed in under a week. The idea behind the game is to get a ball to a star by drawing shapes. While it sounds very simplistic it is something you have to see or try to understand it. If you want to see a video of what the game is like, check out the bottom video. Please note that the game is available for a free download on the site. Although the programmer refers to it sas a “quick and ugly prototype of that game”. However it is still playable and I found it very fun
Here’s a video of Crayon Physics Deluxe. It isn’t available yet but gives you an idea of how the programmer improved on the first. I can’t wait for it.
