The Falling Sand Game

Be Warned! This is a very addictive game! I am not normally a fan of any type of computing games, but I found myself playing on this for hours on end.

I'm sure most of you would have heard and played the flash version of this game somewhere on the Internet. There are many different version of it now, each with their own set of elements to play around and experiment with. The original version of this game is now available to download for Linux. You may wonder why you would want to download it, and just play it online. Well The main benefit of downloading this game, is that you get to install and use hundreds of different mods that various people have made for it. Some of the mods include a fireworks pack, volcano add-ons and an acid mod. Some of the more extreme mods give you the ability to make guns, cars, and even life forms!
