Pretty neat

For not being affiliated with the original creators in any way, this is great. One issue I have is that Newtonian gravity appears to be off with no way to turn it off, making quite a few things useless (the ones I can think of are BGRV, PGRV, BHOL, WHOL, GBMB, and GPMP). Also, the graphics of glowing things (such as LAVA) occasionally glitch, causing me to have to reset the app. Additionally, another thing I've encountered is sort of a glitched pressure view or heat view to be enabled. Also, performance could certainly be improved. However, it's still really fun to blow stuff up with this XD

Good, but some things not to do

This app is great. Is pretty close to the original. If you are starting a game, remember these 2 rules:
1) Do not use walls. Your game will immediately crash.
Edit: this malfunction is fixed, now the only problem is if you have a save file with walls. If you try to load a save with walls, it will crash the app
2) do not have multiple cloners making lightning, or the game will overload and crash. Also, if you use too large a brush size of lightning there is a small chance of crash.

I think that if you fix these bugs, this game will be great. The only request would be a zoom function or a way to change the size of the canvas.

Also, use 2 fingers to change brush size(YEA)

Oh yea, and a random (probable) Easter egg is that if you use the wind tool near the bottom of the screen you can change the view filter. For example, you can get a pressure/temperature filter. This is (probably) not a bug. Just restart the app (sad I know) to get rid of the filter.

Add support for iPad Air 5th generation

I always loved this game, I have 3 devices currently, a tablet, phone, and a iPad, The tablet and phone has support and has Powder Toy, but my iPad Air 5th generation doesn’t, the tablet and phone is really slow and nothing works, the iPad I have is fast. I feel like it’s limited to play on my phone and tablet because it is slow and too much items can make it crash. If there was support on the iPad I have, I would enjoy this game a lot. But most of all, awesome game
