Editors' review

Souptoys is a fun and imaginative game in which users manipulate all kinds of onscreen toys with delightful effects. In a world where violent children's games are all too common, Souptoys is refreshingly innocent and surprisingly fun.

Souptoys isn't a game as much as a set of onscreen toys, as is suggested by the fact that its components are kept in a virtual toy box. What will you find in the toy box? Anything you'd find in a real one: balls, stuffed animals, blocks, roller skates, and much more, plus a few things you probably wouldn't find, like gears and cannons. All of these behave as they would in real life; drop a basketball from the top of the screen and watch it bounce. Fling a roller skate across the bottom and it bumps into the edge of the screen. Users can have hours of fun manipulating various objects around the screen, but where the game really shines is with its playsets, 124 different compilations of toys that can be opened independently. Many of these consists of Rube Goldberg-style contraptions, wherein, for example, a ball rolls down a ramp and pushes a car into a cannon, which then fires the car onto a ledge where it knocks another ball into a bucket that's tied to a balloon...and so on. Every part of each playset can be manipulated, letting users experiment with all kinds of configurations. A brief built-in Help file describes the program's basic functions, but the whole point of the game is experimentation.

Souptoys is free. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this game to all users.
