John Conway's Game of Life.

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
