Conway's Inferno

By Alec Thomson

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Conway's Inferno, the almost hit browser title, Now available for iOS! Triumph over the flammable as you use a host of disasters and non-disasters to completely de-populate a virtual world in this maliciously puzzling game. Based incredibly loosely on Conway's Game of Life, Conway's Inferno is the most entertaining cellular automata around. What's a cellular automata you ask? Well the phrase "cellular automata" roughly translates to "words you can use to impress your parents" (you could also look it up). Here are just a few of the things in store for you should you choose to download this brain-bending game:

- Over 50 levels to destroy!
- Zombies, Ufos, you name it! Explore tons of ways to prove that the dominant species in an ecosystem is the one capable of causing destruction, not the one that just sits there and catches on fire.
- Meaningful moral choices: Will you leave the creatures alone, thus proving yourself to be a paragon of moral virtue, or will you set them on fire, thus completing the level and actually playing the game? The choice is yours!

It's a really good game that makes you think(Must Have)

But in the other side I find this game useless but fun like Little Inferno.

Fun game

Terrible hit detection. The difficulty is trying to place the fires, not the puzzles themselves!
