If you're into Space and space programs in general then I'd highly recommend Kerbal space program, it's a sandbox game with the application of the laws of physics, you can download the demo for free and then decide wheteher to purchase the actual game which once bought you are able to download for free the continuous new versions as it's being heavily developed. The price is $18 usd which is about £12 gbp. Endless fun, extremely addictive and an excellent educational tool for all ages!!!!

Here's a link: :)

This is more of a Chemistry game but still... powdertoy.co.uk
Powder Toy has fluid and powder physics. If you have ever played Powder Game then this is more advanced. It has nuclear fission, fusion, subatomic particles, electric currents, acids, diferent states of matter, photons and more cool stuff.

"Crayon Physics" is kind of a neat concept. You draw objects such as rocks or sticks or ramps, and then they fall under gravity. You are supposed to solve puzzles like getting some object to some destination using hand-drawn levers and weights and so forth.

^The funny thing about Crayon Physics (which the creator admits) is that it is more of a sandbox than a puzzle game. You can do so many things that the puzzles are easy. To be a good puzzle game it would have needed to be very restrictive which would have made it less fun.

Is there a program where I can
- define different particle types
- set and customize particle features (for example size, attraction/repulsion)
- connect particles into chains like molecules
And then simulate all that?
