Newton's Third Law is often quoted as "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." As N3wton's title suggests, the Third Law is at the heart of this little physics-oriented computer game. Click to play. (Warning: there's music.)

Welcome to Magic Pen. This fascinating little game displays a delightful plethora of physics principles in action. The object of Magic Pen -- as in some similar games, like Crayon Physics Deluxe -- is to roll a ball into a goal. The catch is that you can't touch the ball directly: you can only interact with it by drawing shapes with the mouse. These shapes then interact with the ball, obeying basic principles of physics. For example, draw a rock. The rock then falls due to gravity, collides with the ball, and pushes it towards the goal, which is marked by a flag.
