Legends tell of an apple falling on some old white dude's head that led to the creation of these Physics Games. Here at Silvergames.com we believe that the idea of introducing concepts like gravity into a game is welcome no matter where it came from, since it gives otherwise simplistic action games a little puzzle heft.
Physics as a scientific field covers a great number of natural phenomena, but is focused on matter and how it moves and behaves. To the layman and the average gamer, all that means is that games that incorporate elements of physics. Most of the time it's some kind of simulation of gravity, which lets objects fall down and allows them to gather momentum as they are pushed or pulled swiftly into one direction of another. By way of the law of inertia such objects end up carrying quite a punch, if they are moved fast enough, regardless of how small and insignificant they seem at first sight. Puzzles suddenly gain a sense of weight and importance, as they are not solved by logically combining symbols, but instead by taking into account the pseudo-physical properties those objects have.
If you like the idea of balls rolling downs slopes, of trinkets swinging on a rope or of objects catching fire, or breaking into a thousand pieces when damaged... these physics games will provide you with everything you need to experiment and try out your wild ideas.
