iPad Family: Best Children's Educational Apps & Family Friendly iPad Apps Reviewed iPad Family on Twitter iPad Family on Facebook iPad Family on Pinterest


Physics Games, a new approach to gaming

"Physics: the science of matter and energy and their interactions" (WolfRam Alpha via Siri).  

That's exactly what these games are, but instead of real-world matter it's virtual-matter.  

What makes them so amazing is that objects in the game can be manipulated or collided with using your fingers. 

The most popular physics-based game is Angry Birds.  You fling a bird (with a slingshot) and knock into objects which react to the angle and momentum of the flung bird according to physics-based calculations. Others include manipulating a block of wood and a rope (Zen Bound) or drawing objects which you can then use in the game.

We LOVE these kinds of Apps.  Manipulating objects in a digital world and seeing how they interact is fascinating.

iPad's touch screen and high-resolution graphics make playing Physics Games amazing.
