To make lightning, you must first have the Storm Clouds. This can be achieved by swiping the normal clouds or touching the lightning icon. Then you simply drag the cloud to a Pygmy, Dodo Bird or a Monkey and lightning will be generated, electrocuting the victim who will explode. When a Pygmy explodes, the force will propel the others into the air, and some may fall into the water. If a Dodo is electrocuted, it will turn into aBurnt Dodo Bird. While you are dragging the lightning, you can also make patterns and different designs, which appear as the path the lightning takes when you let go.
