How does large hail form?

Updrafts within thunderstorms push rain high into the cloud where very cold air freezes it. Once frozen it starts to fall but gets caught in another strong updraft where it gathers more moisture on its way back up making it larger. If the updrafts are strong enough they will continue this process for long periods of time allowing the hail to accumulate more moisture and more moisture. Updrafts can get so strong they even intrude into the stable stratosphere. When updrafts are this strong it becomes possible to suspend large hail for long periods of time further adding moisture to the hail, sometimes building it to incredible sizes.

Such an enjoyable game!

The first time I played this, I absolutely sucked at it, never making it past the first lesson as it were. Then I got to grip with the mechanics of the game properly and it became much easier to create huge hulking behemoths of hail stones to rain havoc on the ground below.

It's much easier to just give something a gentle nudge whilst it's still very high in the atmosphere as they are much slower there, then simply keep it in the air for a few seconds and you'll quickly have a hailstone that no skyscraper or plane can withstand!

The faux-textbook style the game is presented in is very unique and incredibly enjoyable, as lots of textbooks do really have diagrams presented in the style shown in the game.

A sandbox mode that just allows you to go crazy with the hailstones on everything without the worry of time contraints would be the only thing missing from what is otherwise an incredibly enjoyable and entertaining game.

Going on my Favs

This game I come back to a lot, it's really fun, original, and satisfying! The clock I don't have any problems with, probably my strategy or something. (You can launch hail into th eeffingsphere while you screw around with holding some, hitting them into the 50's for maximum damage. <-- This is really fun to do!
