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.

Lovely hail

This game is very inventive, the gameplay is very well laid out if not overplayed a little. I like the objectives you had to do but some required more time then expected.
The hail however looks more like snow then anything, but that dosent matter too much.

One major fault is that the screen sometimes didnt fit on the box the game was squeezed into. Even if I zoomed out on my explorer I still couldnt see the floor of the game, making it hard to hit the civilians.
The time went too quick as I found myself playing it 2 or 3 times to get past a certain bit to see more of the game.

Overall this is a very good game, if not a bit short. I could continue playing this for half an hour or so. The music in the background seemed to suit it as well.

shame theres no 20 out of 10

oh my god!!! the legendary game i have been waiting for...kill! kill! kill!....with hail stones. genius! remove the timer for a sandbox mode and have different difficulties, like rain and hail...making it harder to produce larger stones and global warming to do the whole making people aware of whats going on but its awesome none the less.
