Wiibrew - Wii Homebrew - news and downloads - Image 1Do you guys know PocketPhysics or Crayon physics? They’re these fun programs that let you doodle on screen, and will animate your drawings with physics. For example, if you draw a circle and let physics take over, it’ll just fall off screen – unless it had a ground to fall on.

This new program, called WiiPhysics from Beardface, is very much like those programs. It lets you do actions like drawing circles and boxes, and connecting objects by a rope, and even setting them up in a pulley system.

This program was created using Box2D and libwiisprite. If you’re a developer, you can download the latest libwiisprite library by following this link.
