    The Game Of Life



    The game of life is actually a cellular automaton devised by the mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
    It's sort of a virtual world where many cells are living.
    They reproduce and die under certain conditions.
    This game does not need the player itself (kind of zero-player game), but we can make it more interactive

    by adding special patterns that will evolve in specific ways, or by changing the rules of the world, for


    The main features of my implementation are:

    Play / Pause / Reset / Random Buttons
    Changing the speed
    Changing the size of the world
    The world is shaped like a torus
    Changing the color:
    - United
    - Random
    - Gradient
    Changing the shape of cells (11 available)
    Become master of the world by changing the rules:
    - 12 predefined rules
    - Create your own rules
    Library patterns (over 50):
    - Oscillators
    - Ships
    - Guns
    - Space fillers
    - Other
    Possibility of sending patterns by email
    Create life or destroy it, simply by touching the screen!

    interesting concept.
    I was gonna say it would be cool if you could post your results (pics) to social networks but I guess you already have that.
