SimplePhysics lets you design complex structures for everything from tree houses to ferris wheels and then simulates your design with a sophisticated physics engine.

A wise person once said: "An engineer is someone who can do for a dime what any fool can do for a dollar." In SimplePhysics, your design must not only be strong enough, it must be cheap enough to win.

Create your design in seconds with the blueprints editor. If you make a mistake, simply tap the Undo button. Zoom in and out by pinching the screen and pan the view using a two finger drag.

While testing, you can see how the strain is distributed across your design. Areas that are under immense strain are colored bright red, while other areas are colored green. This allows you to find and fix problem areas in your design.

The finger test lets you use your finger to push and pull on your design. You can use this with pinpoint accuracy, or you can just smash your design to smithereens. The finger test has an explosive new twist. You can now create explosions by tapping the screen for ultimate annihilation.

The newly added Bomb Shack level includes a dummy with full support for ragdoll physics. Throw him around, blow him up, and smash him against your design.

The slow motion feature lets you slow things down so you can see how your design is failing, and it is also incredibly fun to watch explosions destroying your design in slow motion.

It’s very good. Only problem with it is that there are not enough levels



Two main things I love about this game and games like it: I can feel that it's a labor-of-love when I play it (like I'm meeting up with a buddy for coffee) and it gives me the freedom to apply my mind to the game world to see what comes out, instead of most games where you are expected to dance to the song the designer plays, jumping through hoops to get the next shinier *fill-in-the-blank*.

Mr Garrison has truly designed a game that is as much a pleasure to mess around with as it is to "solve." Personally, I believe the "best" games are those that provide the most pleasure from actually playing them, where the goals and rewards complement the game without overwhelming them. Simple Physics easily fits into my Top 4 Game Apps that includes: Osmos, Tiny Wings, and World of Goo. It's not quite as polished as those other games I mentioned, but it more than makes up for this by allowing players a great deal of freedom to try out crazy ideas in the pursuit of ever cheaper structures that can survive the minimum requirements laid out for each level.



Usually, when I see a paid app, I buy it with caution. When I saw the good reviews for the app, I decided to buy it. At first, it was a little tough to understand, but I caught on quickly. I eventually finished all the levels and put down the game for a while (This was before the thing with 1/2/3 stars). A while later, when I still had the app, but didn't play it, I decided to pick it back up and to challenge myself to find better solutions. To my surprise, there were now stars. This definitely gave me a challenge. For most levels, I had an OK solution, but not 3 stars. So I went back and decided to find a three star solution on all of the levels. Eventually I did, but even then I wasn't satisfied with some of the solutions. I went back and redid them all again to get even better scores. Even after going back numerous times, this app is still so much fun! Andrew Garrison has definitely done it! This app is amazing! Thanks :D
