Hey, cuberunner/space dash explosion routine does more than random data explosions ;) It uses sprites in the mono layer and random data in the gray layer ;)

I like particle explosions best but sprite explosions are easier in most cases :P

I kinda upgraded the particle explosion in Graviter for Tag - in Tag there's more particles and they interact with the environment more fluidly. I must say I'm partial to particle explosions (of course) but seeing the kind of explosions builder and darl pulled off really had me going wow.
In-progress: Graviter (...)

oh, my...
this is a rather one-sided vote :P
* turiqwalrus waits for someone to vote for a different option just to prove him wrong
anyway, Graviter has truly great explosions :D

I like watching the particles from Tag fly around. Somehow, it makes dying not as bad.

Yeah, they are the only ones that goes BOOM!
The TI-83+ versions lack the BOOM!.

I only like sprite explosions when they are made well - high framerate and fluid motion.
