The game is challenging since players will need to think about physics and gravity. For this version of Crayon Physics, players are limited to creating only square objects.  Players can use the objects to influence the movement of the ball so that it reaches the star. Crayon Physics involves a lot of creative thinking since players need to come up with the right shape and placement in order to move the ball accordingly.

Controls for the game are simple. It’s up to the player to use the regular mouse for creating objects or a Wacom pen will do great as well. Players can also delete objects if they find out that it simply won’t work.

Overall, the game is definitely a unique way to spend some extra time. For those looking for a more complete version with extra levels and plenty more allowable shapes, there is Crayon Physics Deluxe available for purchase. It does have a free demo as well if you are interested.
