    Been playing with this for a few minutes now and can safely say it is great: should you find yourself drawn to flash games then you should certainly try this.

    Heh, I haven't tried this one yet but the actual java game (if you can call it a game) is quite fun to mess around with.

    I don't remember any previous version of this -- only a hacked-together port called "Sands", which I don't think belongs to the same author.

    Rats. Now my Ketchup contest entry is toast.

    I believe salt water doesn't evaporate with fire.

    Salt water also prevents plants from growing.

    This one is ages ahead of the original flash game.

    It would be nice if you could add the zombies from hell of sand though.
