A downloadable simulation for Windows

This is my implementation of Conway's Game of Life principles. Essentially it tries to model single cell organisms. The rules describe when a cell is born or dies according to the state of it's eight neighbour cells.

You can look up the principle and exact rules on Wikipedia.

The game (or simulation) allows you to add and change cells, put in some predefined patterns and start/stop the simulation.

It's fun to watch how patterns emerge, and sometimes go into looping stages.

This project is also available on my personal homepage.

You can freely use and modify this for any purpose you want. The simulation is totally free and open source released under the un-restrictive MIT License.

No payment required. No advertisements in the game. No additional software installed with this game.
