I'm designing some sort of Jump'n'Run. I wanted to apply realistic physics to this game for a lot of the wanted features: - realistic jumping and running - grenades and similar weapons - forces when near to an explosion - etc. Will Newton work in a 2D Environment? Any Experiences or thoughts about it?

Ahm... I don't know what would be more realistic than simulating Newton's laws of physics :) (quantum-level micromolecular simulation?) Newton's laws work as well in 2D as in 3D (or even better because it's so much easier to implement).

I'd recommend this site:
Chris Hecker on Rigid Body Dynamics

(edit) Seems I totally missed the question, nevermind :)
