Happened across this a couple of days ago and had quite a lot of fun with it.

It is a rather novel concept that involves drawing on a used piece of graph paper
with a crayon. With the demo one can only draw rectangles or circles but you'll
soon get the gist of how or what you should draw.

You see, it's an experiment with physics or rather the action / reaction of various
2 dimensional items. The object is to move the circle so that it captures the star.
You can draw board shapes, little boxes, or circles perhaps for fulcrums, etc.

There is a full version for about $20 but I've had a ball with the free one. I can do
all of them in less than 10 minutes...course I've had a couple of turns at it.

All in all a very cool proggy and it can be downloaded (Get the DEMO first) here:

Have fun!

Have to agree, for the money think I will get the full version to support them...must easily be worth it for time spent playing with it. :)

Yep...every now and then a novel approach turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.

This one, I thought, sort of fit the bill, as we say.

I'm still thinking about the full version too! Lots of late night fun!

I finally got the one that stopped me and discovered it the last one of the demo.

Cute game but not cute enough to buy.   8)
