In my never ending quest to find cool ways to waste time on the internet, I came across Crayon Physics. Like all of the best games, the object is simple: move the red ball to the star on the screen. This is accomplished by drawing squares to create a path and using physics to make it travel that path. The look of the game is pitch-perfect and really evokes the feel of those bygone days spent scribbling with crayons. Just like with real crayons, it’s as much fun to mess around drawing different things as it is to actually follow the rules. It’s a quick and free download, so give it a try and see if it doesn’t make you feel like a kid again.
Even better, this is just a prototype for a more in-depth version they’re working on now, Crayon Physics Deluxe. Deluxe looks like it’s just going to amp up everything that I already love about Crayon Physics. As terrible as my art skills are in real life, this is just the sort of game I need to bring out my inner artist.
