Crayon Physics and Crayon Physics Deluxe are independent computer games made by Finnish programmer Petri Purho. The prototype was made in five days, as part of Purho’s ‘rapid-prototype project’. Inspired by the book ‘Harold and the Purple Crayon’, it’s an innovative puzzle game in which players draw shapes onto an interactive, scribbled page background, with the aim of guiding a ball to a finish point. The game won the Seamus McNally Grand Prize at the Independent Games Festival in 2008. Include Crayon Physics Deluxe. It is a fantastic tool for fun teaching of basic physics.
