I really liked the recent 2d physics engines that appear lately after the release of crayon physics. My favorite is Markerworld (more reliable and playable than the first imho) yet one of the most impressive recent attempts is Phun. Except for the regular stuff I am really impressed by it's liquify option that turns a solid object into hundreds or thousands of tiny balls that together form a liquid mass. Be carefull though with placing lot's of water because it starts slowing down extremely! The engine has a GUI with several other features like changing various physics variables (friction, gravity and more) or you can draw chains, strings and circles attached together and build physical machines, catapults, rigid bodies or ugly cars :)
Just watch the youtube video presentation and then go to phun's website and try it out!
