Virtual Universe of Sand
I've been meaning to post about this for some time, but Dan Ball's "Powder Game" is fantastic. It basically lays a little segment of a world before you and lets you dot it with various elements, wind and creatures which interact with each other wonderfully.
I think most of us understand that the game is mainly useful for simulation cataclysmic explosions, like the thermonuclear gun thingy pictured above.
The new update adds "wind" and a pixels remaining count, but it unfairly constricts the screen, adding that bar to the right side of the screen. Change it back, Dan!
