This game never fails to put a smile on my face.

Crayon Physics Deluxe is pretty easy, I'll admit. But this game is elegant in its simplicity -- get the red ball to the star, and draw with coloured crayons to get it there. The music is pretty relaxing, and in general the game isn't very fast-paced. A great game to play when you're stressed or annoyed.
The real fun is when over-the-top solutions work, or when a simple but crude solution works right off the bat.

That said, the game's physics engine isn't perfect. I've had it freak out a few times while playing, mostly from jamming too many objects in one space. But when it freaks out, it does so in spectacular ways, which is a plus.

Overall, this game is fun and relaxing, but $20 ($22 CDN) isn't worth it. If the game is on sale though, it's worth a buy.

A wonderful game with an artistic design that looks simple yet outstanding to see.

"editor note" I actually have over 5 hours in this game, but since it was all in offline mode it was not recorded.

Pros
+ Very calming and soothing music that suits this type of game.
+ A huge selection of well-designed levels that gets tougher as you move on.
+ Beautiful artwork and world design, you draw your solution to success something I really admire.
+ Puzzles have a lot of ways to solve and they depend on your imagination, create objects, think and enjoy.
+ Level editor, to create your own levels, imagine it and make it happen.

Cons
- To get all stars at each level you need to play it multiply times, first win being the first star, elegent solution = 2nd star, old school solution = 3rd star, both solutions have certain requirements, like number of moves ..etc, and it gets a bit boring later on to keep
repeating levels to get the stars.
- The awesome solution is somehow a good idea but we'll all just cheat and say we got an awesome solution just to get the last star in the level " you just check the box to get it".
- Game runs at a 1024x768 resolution, which was ok by me, but if you have a much larger monitor you might not like it that much, I don't know for sure.

Rating 7/10 Very fun game to play if you're into this type of puzzle game that refreshes your creativity and imagination then this is for you, However the price-tag is holy sh*t.

Good game. Soothing and at a lot of times hilariously unexpected. Then after about an hour the challenge starts to work its way up. You go from making bridges and boxes to golf clubs. A lot of it is trial and error. Some of it is luck. There is no given way to complete each challenge.

Some of the challenges get good, but not frustrating. In hindsight though this is one of those games that you play.... but don't return to and that's not a good thing for a $20 game. There's nothing compelling me to return. This game is good if you're a creative person or just like drawing with a mouse.

Each level has one goal: to guide an object from point A to point B. The fun comes from experimenting, coming up with different solutions and seeing your contraptions take on a life of their own. It can be hard to draw certain shapes, and sometimes the physics seem to bug out. Although I laughed the hardest when my scribbles reached critical mass and started twitching wildly and flinging pieces all over the place.
