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.

Fuck, why does every game need a timer.

It doesn't up the challenge what so ever. It's just there to piss you off considering we get almost no time to finish the bloody levels.

The game was really fun but seriously, get rid of that fucking timer.

ok but needs more

after a few rounds it gets boring and the resolution is to large for newgrounds to show it right.

One thing ruins it...

Brilliant idea, well made. Should be an excellent time waster.

But, it's not. The reason being, as stated below: the timer. To be honest, I don't even know what you were thinking putting a timer in there. As suggested before, you should have a Challenge mode, which would be timed, and a Sandbox mode, which is exactly the same as the Challenge mode in terms of levels, except no timer.

With those changes implemented, this game is a definite 10. Without the timer, this game would be brilliant for just passing the time. With the timer, the player can't do what I think we all want to do: make a massive great hailstone the size of the map before letting it rip! xD

So, yeah. Hopefully you'll take the reviewers views into account and make a untimed version or something. Then you'd get full marks, without a doubt. But, until then, I can't give you more than a 7, just for the fact that, whilst being fun and challenging, it's not just plain old fun.

As many people have stated before me, The gameplay is good BUT (big but) The timer just ruined it soo mayb a sandbox level would be good. Apart from that u get a 9/10 a 5/5 and a fav (not a perma cuz of the timer).
