    According to TouchArcade:

    Unfortunatly It seems it's only available in the US Store, so I have yet to try it... can't wait though, this is one of the old-school jailbreak games :D
    What are your thoughts? Has it got replay value?

    Definitely has replay value. The other crayon physics game had 30 levels. This has 54. Not only that though, it has "more" physics. Draw objects into each other to create anchors that your objects can attack to and swing around. Finally, it has a level editor! Yay!

    The only complains from me are that the menus are laggy, and (quite often for me) when you're playing a level it won't let you draw any objects because you're "out of crayon" even though you haven't drawn a thing. One reviewer said restarting the game/your device fixes this, but for a temporary fix just go to the menu, do select level, and reselect the level you were playing.

    I normally wait until more expensive games go on sale as I have a limited budget, but I picked this up right away and it was totally worth it!

    Can someone link to it? I'm getting nothing but Touch Physics when I search.

    Edit: ****. Didn't see that link.

    The ONLY way I was able to get to it was through the buy link in appsniper on my touch so I can't provide a link.

    bought it. $5 is well worth it for a good app

    edit: can't seem to get it to draw what i want sometimes (trying to draw a line now and it just disappears).. on level 6 now

    edit2: was in a messed up state -- i restarted the level and it worked

    edit3: lots of fun, very cool. just the bug i mentioned in my first edit -- 4.5/5 stars from me :)

    Need some help on level 17

    Hi...Maybe I am just missing something. Level 17 is a box on the left with two spinning circles inside. The movable ball is sitting on top of the box. The star is on the right-hand side of the screen. I try to draw things but get a message at the bottom of the page that says I can not draw anymore. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Yah, there is a pretty nasty bug in the program. Several times it won't let me draw, it will say erase something before drawing something else, even when I have drawn nothing. Usually takes a phone reboot to fix...

    Ah okay.

    Anyway I am unsure as to whether or not I should buy this.
    Moopf is showing some pretty average reviews...

    Aside from the slightly laggy menus and the "running out of crayon" problem, I found another. They don't explain at ALL how to use the editor. So I'll tell you. To delete objects, double tap. To change the color of the crayon tap the crayon in the top left to cycle through. Click the tools button to open the toolbar to drag and drop anchors, balls, and stars. To draw, tap and drag. What they don't tell you that was a pain to find out, is to keep an object from falling, (e.i. your ground) you need to give it two anchors. Those first two anchors will be invisible, (if you just place one anchor it will be visible) but any more anchors you add will be visible and act as normal anchors.

    I want to download this, but I think $4.99 is a little steep.
