Physics-Based Games


I'm a fan of physics based games.

The ones I have:

-Construction Zone
-Magnificent Gizmos & Gadgets
-Fantastic Contraptions
-Crazy Machines
-Touch Physics
-Ragdoll Blaster
-The Little Tank that could

Anyone know about annother one? I really don't have the overview anymore, since the app store still offers no filtering options. I'd have to search 200+ pages; and I'm too lazy for that

Is Fantastic Contraption worth it? I was thinking about getting it.

Add Tiki Towers, and iBlast Moki falls into that category, and is coming out at some point. (Not yet released, or submitted to the app store)

Also Equilibrio, which is quite good.

Toy Box is not a game, but a hell of a lot of fun to play with.

Bike or Die 2 is on sale for $0.99 at the moment, is a similar game.

And Jelly Car is FREE!

Well, I'd recommend you

Construction Zone (You have to reach a goal building a structure with different materials, bought it just now and I think it's pretty great.)

Enigmo (direct liquids in their respective containers; using different objects; similar to crazy machines)

And finally one of those 2, depends on your tastes (Gameplay is similar though):

Fantastic Contraptions has more simplistic graphics (charming though) but it has a level editor and you can download the creation of others for possibliy unlimited gaming fun

Magnificent gizmos and gadgets has 44 levels, no level editor but better graphics.

I have fun with all games I listed above though. The 4 are just those I'd have bought first

If you consider buying annother one, there are some gameplay videos on youtube.com. When I'm not sure about an app, I'll always head over there and see if a movie is available.


Thanks, I just checked them out and bought them Physics Sandbox games are just as well, like Toy Box you just mentioned (forgot about those, I have Aqua Forest)

Bike or die 2 has quite an impressive amount of levels. It's taff to stear though. I keep crashing

I'm surprised jelly car is free. Seems like a commercial quality game to me!

+1 on the Toy Box. It is so addicting, everything you need from a fun physics sand box style game.

another vote for Tiki Towers


Glass Tower
Perfect Balance
Trace(kinda like touch physics), not really physics though at least I don't think so.

By "Construction", do you mean Construction Zone? I've been considering buying that, but no app named Construction shows up.

Perfect Balance: Harmony [lite] and Inferno [lite] are both physics-based stacking games, and very well done -- loads of levels.
