It seems like fun physics games are on the rise - there's Launchball, which I've mentioned before - but there also seems to be a rise in the numbers of other simple physics games created in Flash. Maybe its because of as3 libraries like APE making development easier, maybe commerical games like Little Big Planet are what drive innovation (imitation?), maybe its even just down to the arrival of Actionscript 3 and its enhanced processing abilities. Whatever the reason, games like Fantasic Contraption and Magic Pen have appeared on the scene, and are well worth a play.  (Just don't start playing when you should be working, otherwise you'll be in trouble.)


If you like those games, you can use classes like APE to start building your own...
