Test your knowledge of physics with balls of yarn.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The puzzles become increasingly challenging as you progress through the game. You'll need a lot of trial and error to make it through, but don't worry -- there's no penalty for making a failed attempt.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cat Physics is a strategy puzzle game that requires a good working knowledge of physics. Not that you need to know forumulas, data, or even the names of forces like momentum and velocity -- but you'll need to understand what happens when a ball of yarn is tossed in a certain direction. Or against a wall. Or over a ledge. The content is cutesied up, with nothing objectionable for younger kids.

Is It Any Good?
In CAT PHYSICS, all you need to do is get one cat to toss a ball of yarn to the other. But of course there loads of obstacles between those two kitties, so you'll have to make sure you toss that yarn ball in just the right direction, at just the right speed to get it over walls, through tunnels, past trap doors, and so on. As the game moves on, it introduces switches and levers that must be hit in order to open up new passages. Some levels require a ton of planning, as you've got to get the yarn to that second cat in one toss -- no matter how many hurdles are in the way. It might be kind of tough, but it's a fun, family-friendly way to see the laws of physics in action.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
