Ragdoll Draw and Play is a fun application that allows you to draw 2D ragdolls and play with them on the screen, which completely follows the rules of physics (including gravitational field).
This small-sized program is portable. Since installation is not necessary, you can save the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and click it to run.
Otherwise, you can save Ragdoll Draw and Play to a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine seamlessly.
An important factor to take into account is that the Windows registry is not updated with new entries, and leftover items do not remain on the disk after removing the utility.
Ragdoll Draw and Play's interface is made from a single window, where you can enter draw mode to start a project from scratch, or open one of the ten scenarios included in the package to edit.
It is possible to create balls and links, as well as to specify the ball size and mass, link width, and angle strength. Furthermore, you place anchor balls, resize everything, delete selected items, zoom in and out, and adjust the gravity level. Unfortunately, the unregistered version does not permit project saves.
Ragdoll Draw and Play is quite addictive once you get used to it. It has a good response time and runs smoothly, while using a low quantity of CPU and RAM, so it doesn't affect the system's overall performance. On the downside, the main frame stays on top of other windows and you cannot change this option. Plus, it cannot be minimized to the taskbar or system tray.
Although the utility has not been updated for a very long time, Ragdoll Draw and Play provides modern users with a compelling game, while emphasizing the architecture's logic and simplicity.
