The Game Of Life was created in 1970 by mathematician John Conway.
It consists of a two dimensional orthogonal grid of cells, each of which being alive or dead.
Cells evolve at each turn following simple rules:
- A live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies.
- A live cell with more than three live neighbours dies.
- A dead cell with three live neighbours becomes alive.
- Library of 800+ common patterns, which can be expanded.
- Customisable rules, for exploring beyond the classic Conway's rules.
- Open and save files as RLE (run length encoded).
- Highly customisable interface.
- Pattern viewer.
- Live drawing and simple drag & drop from the library.
- Support for macOS 11 BigSur.
- Support for upcoming hardware.
Ratings and Reviews
nice little game
This game is verry complex yet simple and it is like a side little game to play wile waiting for things.
I've Played Life for Decades Now
This an enjoyable version of Life. I first encountered Life in Scientific American, in the early 70's. I was fascinated, but it was tedious to play small arrays with paper and pencil. As my access to computers increased over those decades I managed to write or download various versions of life, from time to time. I'm retired now, but I realized that I no longer had Life on my laptop, so here I am again. Thanks for a renewed interest. - Art
I just learnt about this game when the creator passed away this week
This is a very aesthetic and interesting way to interact with the Game of Life. The app is very configurable, and has a nice palette of famous patterns that are fun to play with. Definitely go look at the wikipedia page for Game of Life — there's a lot more to it than at first meets the eye
