The Splatters was released on XBLA yesterday for 800 points.

Here are a couple of nice-looking physics games on the horizon:

In Spiky Snail‘s Confetti Carnival your goal in each level is to ignite confetti bombs by splattering them in creative ways, earning point bonuses for performing stunts and combos. No release date announced.

Eko Software’s Storm has you guiding a seed to fertile ground using the elements of nature. The game is slated for a Summer 2011 release on PC, XBLA, and PSN at $10.
