Awesome!!!

In ALGODOO, kids play as engineers, inventors, and scientists exploring (and building with) the cause-and-effect relationships among energy, objects, and materials. Friction, gravity, light, magnetism: they're all here for kids to discover as they complete tutorials and create "scenes" -- or playable scenarios -- that demonstrate scientific principles via the players' created models and mechanisms. There can be a lot to keep track of for those looking for a challenge, but it's also fairly easy to get up and running with something like a laser and a prism to engage kids and get them thinking about how our world works. Algodoo is a great entry point for learning physics. Because it's a two-dimensional sandbox, it's a much more welcoming experience than something like the popular three-dimensional physics puzzler Garry's Mod. It's easy to see how objects attach to each other or interact with one another in two dimensions as compared to three. Thorough tutorials help kids master the basics, and the Algobox community features plenty of projects from which to draw inspiration for more advanced work. The "lessons" section offers tutorials that teach discrete, specific topics in physics. Algodoo is like a Scratch for physics; it starts where kids are but can spiral up in complexity as they learn.

Physical awesomeness!

This game is an amazing physics sandbox. Kids will learn relatively advanced physics with settings where you can change the density, mass, and attraction levels of shapes. It also encourages creating things. From cars to black holes, from mechs to spaceships, anything is possible!

Awesome

Helps learn, but a lot like Garry's mod, I rec Garry's mod for a more fun and action game that is just like this

Truly the bestest

A real fun game, you can practically do anything, at first seems innocent. Then THE BLOOD, oh my goodness the blood! Everywhere, and if you go online you have to spend ten more dollars? And wverybody is swearing in multiplayer, overall fun but not for everyone.
