Fysics Phun

Sunday 24 February 2008This is more than 15 years old. Be careful.

Phun is a 2D physics simulator. There seem to be a lot of these recently (Crayon Physics, for example), I’m not sure why.

But Phun lives up to its name, it is phun to play with, and comes with a few sample scenes that are easy to fiddle around with and see what happens. The tower under attack by a catapult is especially good for experimentation. I recommend building a flimsy water tank on top of the tower for extra drama.

For other ideas, check out YouTube:


I took a few hours this evening to whip up a tool for Phun users. For those you you that haven't tried Phun yet, it's a sandbox physics simulator/game written by Emil Ernerfeldt for his Masters thesis.

The tool overcomes a few of Phun's shortcomings, namely the ability to draw straight lines and complex symmetric shapes, and is called the Phun Gear Creator.
