Ragdoll Blaster: A Physics Puzzler



Offbeat physics game teaches angles and velocity.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Firing the cannon is easy; hitting the target gets harder as you level up. Sight line, a new option that temporarily displays a dotted line from the cannon to your finger, is very helpful in hitting targets that move.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this physics game teaches angle and velocity by shooting rag dolls out of a cannon. The limp ragdoll bodies on the screen can be a bit unsettling, though, and the game gets really hard after the first 20 levels.

Is it any good?


Ragdoll Blaster combines the sheer fun of firing ragdolls from a cannon with physics puzzles. Can you shoot with the right angle and velocity to hit the red-and-white target? The fewer shots the higher the score and the less cluttered with limp ragdoll bodies your screen will be.
