Magic Pen (or Crayon Physics 2: Electric Boogaloo)

ScreenshotIt’s been nearly a year since Finnish casual games student/genius Petri Purho brought the amazingly simple experimental game Crayon Physics to the world, and ever since then we’ve been hungry for more.  He reportedly has been working on a more highly-polished version called Crayon Physics Deluxe (see my previous post for more info and video,) but apparently one gentleman (programmer Alejandro Guillen) got a little tired of waiting…

His take on the concept is a little flash game called Magic Pen.  It features roughly the same type of gameplay (as well as some of the levels lifted directly from Purho’s game,) with a more highly-polished interface, and some of the ideas last spotted in the C.P.D. video brought to fruition (pivots, other shapes, etc.) through over two dozen levels.

It’s unclear what the intellectual property ramifications are of these two very similar games being brought into existence.  I’m still looking forward to C.P.D., and I hope that our Finnish friend delivers on it SOON.  In the meantime, I can’t wait to really dig into this game.  My wife already has like a 10-level headstart…
