The condition of the Sand Balls is to guide a small group of balls in an obstacle course until they reach a truck. The player, however, does not move them immediately – he only removes parts of the scene with his finger on the touch screen, so that the balls fall thanks to physics. There are many bonuses you can get along the way, such as more groups of balls and keys that open reward boxes, as well as different obstacles introduced at each stage of the game, such as pipes, bombs, buttons, among others.

How to play
You can quickly engrave your finger on the screen to remove parts of the scene and create paths and hold down to continue the removal while the balls continue to fall. The screen always follows the ball that is the lowest on the stage, so if one of them falls before the player clears the other’s path, he may lose them. You need to reach a certain amount of balls to complete the level and win diamonds, in addition to earning stars for your performance.

Along the way there are white balls that, when you touch the group controlled by the player, become colored and are part of the group. While they are white, these balls do not suffer gravity even if the player removes the landscape below them. Sometimes it is possible to see the keys gradually. Once you get three of them, the user can use them to open reward boxes with diamonds and new marbles for unlocking.

The best strategy for most obstacles is to avoid them, that is, to find paths that do not cross them. When this is not possible, approaching the center is usually the best option. If there are marbles or keys on either side of the screen, you can split your team with quick scratches or using more than one finger to create multiple paths at the same time.

At the end of the scene, the player receives diamonds that can be used to buy new balls or at the “Cidade de Areia”. In the city, you can build buildings and then upgrade them to get more diamonds regularly when you visit.
