The Falling Sand Game Tips

You can use the bar below the elements menu to increase the brush size. This is really helpful because the default brush size is very small, and some elements need to cover a wide area more quickly than what a smaller brush size can do.

Pick from a handful of elements using the primary menu bar. There are things like salt, fire, oil, and water.

If you want to restart the game, just refresh the page.
