The Elements is a sandbox-style game modeled off of the Falling Sand/Powder Game. Control the sandbox you wish you had, with over 30 elements ranging from explosives like C4 and Oil to Plants which grow in the presence of Water to Acid that dissolves most elements in it's path!

But those are only the base elements included with the game. With the power of the Custom Element Editor, you can create, modify, and save your own elements. The only limitation is your imagination! Best of all, we've opened up almost every single property that regular elements have, meaning you can create entirely unique elements.

Key features of the app include:
- Custom element editor
- Real gravity control (accelerometer control, enabled via the preferences)
- Heat dynamics and phase transitions between elements
- Psuedo-realistic fluid dynamics
- Explosives like C4 and Oil
- Saving and loading as many scenes as you want

Have a friend who also has this app? You can copy over files between devices to share the exciting scenes and elements you've created (this is still experimental). All of the elements you create are located at /sdcard/thelements/elements and any scenes you save are located at /sdcard/thelements/saves.

    My favorite falling sand game, but a recent update mixed all of my custom elements and bugged their properties. It's also become impossible to delete custom elements through the game itself (still possible by removing them directly from the save file)

    Absolutely the best falling sand game I've seen on the Google Play store. Simple interface, ALOT of variety and best of all, its free! I am very, very excited to see this app grow as the devs work out updates and very relevant bug fixes.

    I love this game! I have some suggestions though: 1) more collision options and/or the ability to define new collisions 2) the ability to use custom elements as lower and higher elements and collision options 3) maybe wind 4) more special properties, for instance: how hot it burns, radioactivity, etc... and 5) ALWAYS NEW ELEMENTS!!! You guys are doing awesome! But dead particles should be fixed, i

    The thing that seperates this version from the others is the great variety and simplicity of the interface, but I would greatly enjoy if the electricity and conductivity was expanded upon. At the current version there is no use for electric current, not even as a fuse. Another thing I would change would be to have more powerful pyrotechnics; I keep fonding myself going back to sand free just beca
