“Crayon Physics”-like game: Magic Pen

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Here’s something that’ll make creating your own Wii worth-while. I really want to see this make it on the Wii but so far it has not.

You play with crayons and physics. The goal of the game is to move the red ball so that it collects the stars. You can cause the red ball to move by drawing physical objects.  Click to play

The simplest way to have fun with your new “Wii” system is through the freely available online flash games. What the gaming world has learned from the success of the Wii is that simple games when played with the Wii remote motion control, can be surprisingly fun.

Wii2DShoot code download

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

Here is the demo application I wrote in a couple of hours using XNA game studio. It was really simple. I think the Wii revolution has taught us that a game does not have to be a Hollywood blockbuster to be fun to play. I hope to write a tutorial on this sometime in the near feature so more people write their own PC-Wii games to share with others.

Download: installer, source code

Installation Notes:

Since this demo game is written using the Microsoft XNA platform, most likely you will need to download and install the following packages before you can run the game
