2D Physics Playscape

by Brian Mayberry - Compo Entry

2D Physics Playscape!

In this simple 'game' you can place physics objects. Challenge your self to see how complicated you can construct before it all comes crashing down. There's no limits to the amount of objects you can use.

Wood is light weight with a bit of friction.
Metal is super-heavy with minimal friction.
Brick is sorta heavy with lots of friction.

How to play:

Click the material icons to spawn a new object. Click and drag to position, scroll wheel while dragging to rotate, and right-click to delete objects.

Use the weird sling shot to knock things down.

It's sometimes very hard to change the blocks in the bottom if I need when building something. Maybe you could have added something like floating heavy cubos or something, just to make it a bit easier

A simple concept, not very innovative, but at least you can have some fun and everything combines.

Do very well what it says in the title, but... I miss something, maybe a challenge mode with some objectives to reach... ^^

it's fun, but it could do with a little variety in materials. everything works great, it's just missing something. Good effort though!

May be objects could spawn on the mouse position when clicking ?
Or else objects could fall from top, like raining objects.
For more funny buggy physics !

Hi there. Fun builder toy... Be nice to have the spawn small/large items tied to buttons (123/ASD or something). Like the sling too ;) Maybe a limited number of anchors be nice also (kinematic/non-physics platforms) Good job!

Nice physics game. Imho some in-game challenges would be great (like build an object to gain points).

Good starting point - finish it! :-)

I had a lot of fun with basketballs and elastic but I do not have the patience to try to make a beautiful construction. It lacks a bit of challenge like you can see in World of Goo, but at least you got good foundation for something more advanced :P

Interesting but gets boring quick. I'd love to see some challenges added to it that you could try to clear like, "Knock over a three high tower using 2 basketballs" or something like that in a post ld version of the game.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
