Not to be confused with the original Powder Game.
Powder Game 2 (often abbreviated as PG2) is a newer, remade version of the original Powder Game. It was released on December 9th, 2011, and is the 17th game released on Dan-Ball. It is also the first sequel to a previous game, with the second one being Ham Race 2. It features a wider screen than the original Powder Game, and is focused more on fluid dynamics. According to Ha55ii's comment, the game's source code was rewritten so Powder Game 2 would be able to feature elements and other features that were not possible or simply too incompatible with the original Powder Game, due to various technical problems.
There are 44 (45 if readvar is counted) elements currently available in Powder Game 2.
There are currently 8 special objects in Powder Game 2.
- Block: An indestructible block is created.
- BH: A black hole.

Main article: Powder Game 2 Timeline
- After the menu update of ver8.2, an extra menu row was added, increasing the amount of available space (5 spaces) for future elements, objects, and tools, but the game screen itself was not updated to fit the new menu. The final line, showing the number of dots, copyright information, etc., was not visible under most circumstances. Arguably, the easiest way to see the final line was to zoom out using a browser's built-in zoom function.
- When this was fixed for the regular game screen, it remained the same for viewed works until a short time later.
