Online games are more popular than ever with thousands of online games sites bringing them to you. There are several types of online games including action, adventure, fighting, strategy, and shooting games. Most online games really do not provide any educational value to the player. In comes Physics Games.
Online Physics Games feature real object physics and theories directly modeled into the game play. Playing physics based games are not only very fun and addicting, but also provide an educational value to the player as they will test and help improve many critical thinking, problem solving, and strategy skills. Physics games include ragdoll, demolition, construction, cannon and object stacking games.
A classic example of a physics game is one called Doodle Physics. In Doodle Physics, the objective is to take the objects given and balance them perfectly on the playing field without tilting and dropping all the pieces. This game takes quite a bit of strategy and critical thinking in order to figure out which arrange and in what order to pass the level. The first few are quite simple, but after that the levels increase in difficulty to challenge your sense of logic. Doodle Physics is very fun and challenging and is a must play physics game.
One of my favorite online games to play is a physics based game called Destructo Truck. In Desctructo Truck, you must drive a big rig down a huge ramp to launch the truck as high and far as possible. In doing so, there are many buildings on the ground and your object is to smash as many buildings in a row as you can. The more you smash the higher your money bonus is. With this bonus you can upgrade your truck to add more bounce, speed, give it a nudge, or make your ramp longer. I have literally spent all afternoon playing this game!
Another awesome physics based game I like to play is called Dummy Never Fails. The object of this game is to fire a crash test dummy out of a cannon to hit the goal. This game is not as easy as you would think! You must strategize and calculate angles correctly in order to be successful. Even if fail, it is amusing to watch the dummy flail helplessly bouncing off of the walls!
