Game of Life is a cellular automata simulation based on the well known Conway's Game of Life.

In this you can select from a number of preset settings or set your own values for the survival and birth of the next generation.

You can create random maps or draw your own and see what you can create.

Now save your own life settings and choose from millions of colours. Also Pan and Zoom from 0.5x to 5x zoom so you can create intricate game of life start settings.

Small changes in the settings lead to dramatic changes in the activity!

-Brilliant coding, amazing logic, useful presets. Well worth five stars!
-I've tried several and this is the best.
-Very nice implementation of the game of life.

What's New

Version 2.1.1

Fixed an issue that caused a problem when viewing Life Settings.

Further updates are on the way. I'm currently working on a way for you to create your own Life Patterns.

Really cool


It's really fun to draw your own shapes and random dots and see how they live through different generations. I saw something like this (or possibly this) on dara o'briains school of hard sums and had to download if I found it. It's a great way to spend 10-20 minutes.

The best!

I've installed a couple of other remakes of the cons game of life, and what I like in particular about this one is the adjustable speed and the zoom feature. Best of all of the GOL games on the App Store by far!!!!!

Gliders Rule!

Really nice App version of Conway's Game of Life. I hope the dev does decide to do an iPad version, would love a massive "world" to play with! :)
