A Pygmy gets struck by lightning

This episode (which is argued to be the most godlike one of all time), added the ability to be able to strike Pygmies with Lightning. With a swipe of a finger, you could switch out the clouds for storm clouds. When you are on storm clouds, if you drag you finger from the cloud to a Pygmy (and Dodo Birds and Monkeys later on), it generates lightning that electrocutes the Pygmy, who will explode.

Lightning Patterns

Another fun feature of the lightning is you can drag it around, and when you strike the Pygmy (or release your finger from the screen), your exact pattern is formed! Therefore, you can form words with the lightning if you want to. When a Pygmy explodes, the force from his explosion will propel others into the air from the shock wave.

Hurricane Zaps

In later episodes, when the hurricane has been added, the lightning and the hurricane can combine to make the mini-game of "Hurricane Zaps", where the player sees how many Pygmies he/she can electrocute while they are picked up in a hurricane.
