time waister of the day

perfect way to way to be mindless on a rainy monday

” “The Hell of Sand” is a brilliant time-waster of a flash game. “There are many dynamics to this game but no goal. Play around for a while and you’ll get the hang of it.” Great premise.

You play with four streams of colored sand using 18 different effects, some of them working in awesome combinations with each other.

C-4 and Torch, for example, wasn’t too hard to figure out. I’ve also been making little cups of gunpowder and blasting them to hell with torch. But can someone tell me what “plant” does? Does it grow in the water? I can’t figure it out.

  1. There are a dozen variations on this game ( has a bunch of them -etch-a-sketch sand is particulary amusing once you get the hang of it). I love it. In this version plant grows in water, can be stopped by salt, and destroyed by fire. Basically, the basic principles of physics, chemistry, and biology apply.
