[prMac.com] Ljubljana, Slovenia - Ales Golli was not particularly proud of being a university dropout. Several years after he had dropped out to pursue his passion for computer software, he returned to university to finish his degree in architecture. But little did he know that a year after successfully finishing his degree, there would be a beautiful little by-product: an iPhone game.
While preparing for his degree in architecture, he came across the Voronoi diagrams. He explored them extensively and used them, in combination with genetic algorithms, as the basis for creating his undergraduate thesis skyscraper design.
Several months later, an idea for a simple yet addictive mobile game was born. Ales was always fascinated by the addictive power of games like "the rotating cube" and "falling blocks" - how immersive the interaction with simple geometrical forms can be. He had been dreaming of creating pure geometry-based games since his childhood.
In 2012 everything started coming together. He began studying iPhone, the iOS platform and the development tools. He knew almost everything about the Voronoi diagrams. Not only from a purely mathematical point of view. He also intuitively and deeply understood the many creative possibilities they offered.
So he started a project and after some time, Voroflow came to life. In this completely unique game, the user has to move the colored tiles into clusters of the same color in order to clear the board, but there's a twist. The geometry is not orthogonal, as is the case in most similar games. The player enjoys the freedom of free-flow geometry as she effortlessly moves the tiles across the board. It takes only a few seconds to learn the game, but the layout of the tiles is random and thus completely different each time.
Today, Voroflow is available on the App Store for $0.99. Ales hopes it will bring fun and casual entertainment to many people, as it did to him while he was building it.
