Crayon Physics Deluxe is Out!

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009 by Matthew in News

As you may have already noticed–for the Internet is aflame with Crayon Physics fever–Petri’s Crayon Physics Deluxe is out. Like, you-can-pay-$19.95-right-now out. Go buy it! It’ll be a fine game to return to reviewing with. Stay tuned.

    Sorry, i have to say it. First!

    Anyway, game looks greal although there are loads of similar, free games like phun which do the same thing so it might not be worth spending money on. But its good to see its out at last.

    looks very well presented, but I’ll have to stick with Phun until there’s a free copy

    It was a good game, but it’s not that hard to blaze through all the levels 70-some levels in one sitting. Some of the levels get pretty hard, but there are a few tricks you’ll pick up along the way that can be applied to pretty much any level. Although, it can be said that I felt dirty after beating some of the levels. Some cheap tricks were deployed to beat a few of them. I haven’t really done much with the level editor yet.

    It was mentioned in a previous review of the original Crayon Physics that “you can draw anything you want, as long as it’s square.” which is a problem that was seemingly just covered up instead of fixed. While you can draw any shape now, if you pay attention you’ll notice the ball sometimes floating a bit off of your shape or going inside your shape a bit. From what I tell, it seems to transform your shape into a rectangle still, but just an invisible rectangle that sits with your drawing.

    Anyway, I had fun with it while it lasted and the endless solutions to each level provides some replay value (Perhaps going back and finding a smarter solution). I would say that I think this is a $10 title, instead of $20. It could have had a few more tools, as it stands there are ropes, joints, and , of course, the blocks.

    It’s good if you want something to mess with for a few days, but I’d agree with the people above, I enjoyed games like phun a lot more. There’s just not enough to do in this game and the formula gets tiring without anything new to mix it up.

    I should note about the rectangle thing, you can draw curves and such, like a cup shape for,say, a catapult, but the problem occurs in shapes that are similar to rectangles.

    @Fardale and @London

    Phun and Crayon Physics Deluxe are two different kinds of games. Phun you can do whatever you want and it is, basically, a fun easy to use physics system. Crayon Physics Deluxe however is more of a challenge and actually has goals. It is a great game. And it is worth every penny because i preordered it for 14.95 (especially since 1 guy pretty much did all of the work.)

    You guys are missing the point of the game. Its not about beating the level by putting a line over the gap. Its about seeing how creative you can be with each level i.e using a crane with intricate pulleys and ropes to beat an otherwise simple puzzle. This game is frigging great.

    Fardale….no. lol. Matt??? Have you abandonded us for real this time? You are not posting and your number one game does’nt even exist on the right sidebar. It’s a blank space with a rating of 5 perfect stars. Wtf? Im jonsing for a nice physics game man…a free one…like one the site has never heard of before…I hope you are ok dude. You’ve been supplying us with games for so long now, so it would be a shame if you’ve lost your inner fire or are sick or dying. So give us a shout out! Let us know you are at least alive. Peace. And luck to you and your studio.

    Ok….this is for anyone who still investigates the site. Matthew isn’t dead. I decided to investigate Blurst, his company’s site, and he is working on a game called Blush…but seems to have aborted this site as his bastard child…so sad. There is not even some other guy updating the site, like Matthew had said he would in a (much) earlier post. So mystery solved. Hit up Blurst for Matthew’s company’s games, but as of right now, we have no equal to Fun-Motion. (Tears)

    Cheer…..ah screw it

    I’m not dead or anything, yeah, just busy. Flashbang/Blurst is taking a lot of my time, and I also help coordinate the Independent Games Festival and Independent Games Summit. I’m trying to figure out how to work Fun-Motion back into my schedule. I’d like to revive it, although I may actually move away a little from reviewing other games…

    Looks like the other reviewers are MIA. That’s a shame, this is a good site for my physics fix.

    Hi, for those of you who dont already know CORTEX COMMAND B23 IS OUT! (if you dont know what Cortex Command is then we can’t be friends anymore).

    Too bad he no longer posts here. I’ve started a physics games blog, but it also includes web games and stuff. I just started it so expect more posts soon!
