[prMac.com] Herzliya, Israel - Tiltan Games today is pleased to announce Flow Max 1.2 free for iOS, its single player, board/puzzle game that reached #23 in the U.S. App Store list of the Top 100 Board Games, as well as breaking into the Top 100 Board Games in 92 countries and the Top 10 Board Games in 14 countries. Played on a grid measuring between 5x5 and 12x12 in size, players must connect uniquely matching pairs of colored dots. Connecting lines cannot be drawn diagonally, pass through other dots, or cross other lines. The animated lines and dots create striking mazes of colored, connecting flow lines, daring players to test the limits of their logical thinking. This update adds an additional 2,400 levels to the initial 600. With 1,440 levels included free, the rest are available via in-app purchases, including Expert Levels containing 11x11 and 12x12 puzzles.

The best puzzle games take a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. Flow Max hooks players immediately for two reasons. First, the user interface ensures an immersive, unimpeded experience during gameplay. No detail has been ignored. Every dot, line, and action has been carefully executed and refined. Second, the game's concept is automatically intriguing and appealing. Hand, eye, logic, and foresight combine to produce a compelling, satisfying experience with each level completed.
Conceptually, the game derives from computational geometry, line segment intersection problems, and wire routing in electronic design. In fact, the flow created when two matching dots are connected is directly analogous to the flow of electricity between two points on a printed circuit board. With the exception of the fact that PCB traces are not constrained to perfectly vertical or horizontal lines, Flow Max challenges players with the same kind of problem faced by PCB designers.
Fortunately, the difficulty of the puzzles ramps up slowly. All but the last ten 5x5 levels are fairly easy. From 6x6 onward, games present the average player with a reasonable challenge. If players draw a line that goes through an existing line, the new line causes the old line to be removed. In this way, players can conveniently try connections that would ordinarily be prohibited. With growing skill, players will begin to visualize the finished puzzle before making a single connection. Most puzzles have more than one solution, but some do not. A limited number of hints is available at any level. Flow Max also allows players to easily post their results and challenge their friends via Facebook.
"Global Boost is a unique feature in Flow Max," said Adi Raz of Tiltan Games. "This is a fun feature that allows everyone who owns the game to enjoy a free bonus every time enough people purchase items in the Game Store. This way, everyone profits from the success of the game."
