Sand in your Android - The iOS game first released in 2012 has finally worked its way to Android! In The Sandbox, you play a god-like character with the power to paint with the elements. By dragging your finger across the screen, you can drop stones, bits of earth, water, even create batteries, lava, heating elements, and more. Not only that, you can also toy with the lighting, weather, and temperature settings, creating conditions ripe for just about anything your brain can cook up.

Several dragons are flying together in a group, each with a row of orbs on its side.
