This game falls into the genre of falling sands and is one of the best out there. You can control 34 elements as well as blocks, circles, wind, air, characters, fighters etc. It then leaves you to do whatever you want and create anything you want.

All the elements are different from fire (which burns things and creates high air pressure), to wind or fans which can cause your entire area to blow away, and lasers which can set of fuses and burn things, to seeds which can grow trees in powder (oddly without water). This game has lots of options.

 You can even play as a character in the game although that is better on the computer as you don't have to keep swapping in and out of character. You can take in an element and fire water, or lasers etc. Then there are fighters which are your enemies and can kill you in an instant and you have to kill with fire etc.

Then when you have made your amazing creations you can share it to the world and get others to play or admire your masterpiece and vote on it. You can also play other peoples.

The sheer amount of customization is only limited by the quite poor pixel count (even on large it is quite small) and the IOS power which means it can get quite laggy at times.

Conclusion: overall this is a good little time waster but not as good as the PC version. Check it out at
