I just finished building a game of pong for those of you with Sudden Motion Sensors on your Mac. Using the Sudden Motion Sensor, you can now play Pong. Tilt the laptop to control the paddle and scream to increase the size of the paddle. Enjoy! But play it at your own risk.

N (as in Ninja) from Metanet Software is the best (flash) game ever made…the simplicity of design and gameplay bubbles up into a fabulously dynamic experience…seriously, check it out.  Plus the website has a bunch of great tutorials on some pretty advanced collision detection techniques. 

from the website: 

N has been described as reminiscent of lode runner — you're a little dude running around in a puzzle-y world inhabited by enemies.

But in N, there's a twist: the ninja is driven not only by a thirst for gold, but also by a physics simulation.

Death, which happens often, is quite animated.
