Short Verdict: A puzzle game with so much potential and such a nice concept... but it just falls short where it matters the most--the gameplay. It relies too much on your creativity while lacks in providing something really substancial. I was really looking forward to playing this game, but in the end it was nothing more than a big disappointment. I sympathize so much with this game, but I can't see how I could recommend it. If you can face it more like a sandbox than a puzzle game, maybe you can have some fun with it.

Pros:
  • Cute simplistic graphics
  • Okay BGM
  • There's a lot of room for being creative and trying an infinite variety of strategies to solve the puzzles

Cons:
  • What you draw doesn't always match the objects' hit area, making it kinda clumsy
  • Terrible tutorial (of lack thereof) that made me wonder how to create ropes, pins etc.
  • Difficulty is either too easy (if you just wanna get beat each stage) or too hard (if you're aiming for the Elegant and Old School solutions)
  • To get the Awesome solution, all you have to do is vote for it as awesome... which is really, really lame
  • Some parts of the physics, like friction and the weight of the objects you create, fall short
  • Their official forum is dead

Bought on / for: I traded this game because I like puzzle games and I thought it would be fun. But, c'mon, a full price of US$ 20 (R$ 35 is cheaper, but still really expensive)!? Had I known, I wouldn't get it even with a 90% discount AND if it had trading cards. I can totally see this game being uploaded to a F2P website, like kongregate.

Similar games: If you're feeling like you wanna solve puzzles while drawing stuff with crayons, by all means, go for Draw a Stickman: EPIC. It's much better and much cheaper.

Very interesting game to play. It's nice that you can draw anything you want to solve the problem. Very versatile, original, and the fun is up to how creative you as a player are. It also gives a little lesson in physics amidst the fun!

This is very nice made. You can solve problems in whatever way you want, but still, you're always thinging "Well, I can do better. Let's go on!!" It's a game which needs some creativity and shows realistic physical behaviour of objects. A total Have-To-Play, in my opinion.

Great for stupid duck tests. Not great when the ducks are so stupid they delete your save file (Seriously, pressing "new game" immediately deletes your save file)!

All the glitches and creativity lead me to give this innovative game a solid 7.4/10.

It's a great idea, but I think this one really needs to be on a tablet.

Has some novelty value but grows boring before long.

Perhaps I don't have enough imagination for this game. Each level that I played was quite easy to get the ball from the start to the star. However, I fear the reason I wasn't able to get into this game is that I always went for the simplest and most effective route. If you're one who likes needlessly challenging yourself or finds enjoyment in coming up with zany solutions then Crayon Physics Deluxe is for you.

The graphics are cute but they too grow boring quickly. The music is pleasant and relaxing but I only noticed two different tracks, a menu and gameplay track. Either it all blends together or there is lots of looping.

I can't help but think this was a relatively easy game to produce that happened to gain some popularity due to its look and the way you draw to interact with the physics puzzles. While that shouldn't necessarily be held against a developer I do think the price of the game should reflect that. At 20$ full price at the time of writing I see this as way overpriced.

A flash game ported to steam, if you want to play this game then do it on amor games or something, resolution seems to only go up to 1024x768 and better yet it uses a slider for resolution. A slider. Slider.
Also, no sandbox mode as far as I see, instead of that theres a "playground" fan-made levels you can play or make with the level editor. Okay, but no sandbox. Half the fun was spamming shapes, pivots and stuff, but that isn't here.
Also, ridicoulusly easy to crash. Hold right click and move your mouse really fast on the map screen, insta-crash.
4/10, that's being generous.

I originally got this game as a free promotional app on my phone a long time ago. It's a cute physics puzzle game, has a nice art style to it, but it's just not that interesting as a PC title.

Good to play on the toilet, not so much on a gaming rig.
