Play the Pen Tool Game

Digital Asset Published 1/4/15 Last updated on 3/2/20

This is a hidden gem by Adobe that you can access from the What's New pop-up box when you open Illustrator CC. or you can go to to find it. It seems geared for little kids, but it helps with pen tool skills in a big way. Anyway, on the page, click on Learn Essentials. Scroll down, and under the heading Create Artwork you will find Play the Pen Tool Game. I am using it is all my classes.

  • Photoshop

​I can't find it via the information you shared but after a google search I found The Bezier Game.

Here is the link. I tried using it in Safari but it wasn't fully functional. No problems in Firefox.

​I can't get it to play. It says to press 'P' to select the pen tool but typing 'P' just puts a 'P' in search bar. I can't seem to activate the game.
