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.



wow this game is awsome better than all the rest



HAHAHA! Absolutely hilarious! Awesome, Love it
As If I could ever dodge 38m Hail! Loved bringing down the plane!

quite good

bombing the town with 40m hail was quite good fun 5/5

very good

Visuals were amazing. Loved playing this game.

Add a timed mode (about 7 minutes should do) with updraft upgrades (presumably as the weather becomes increasingly erratic) and you'll increase the replayability quite a bit.

Same as all other comments

This needs more too it, it has little to no replay value, and after you beat it, there isn't really anything left to do. However, this game is what Newgrounds is all about. This was very original and yet kept a great hold over what people like to see.
