Death is success in Conway's Inferno for iPhone and iPad, a cellular automata inspired puzzle game where the player uses all sorts of disasters to bring a population to extinction. The game is an expansion of a 2011 Global Game Jam entry and Indie Games browser pick, featuring 35 more levels than the jam version along with puzzles using bombs, medics, craters, lava, and even more zombies. All this adds to loads of ways to instigate mayhem and destruction, not unlike Conway's Game of Life.

Unique and free iOS games are hard to come by. Conway's Inferno is one of the good ones. Congrats to its creators: Feras Iskanderani, Alec Thomson and Arshan Gailus.
