Life Sim

By Farid Ahmad

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


An implementation of Conway's Game of Life.

Conway demonstrated how simple rules could help to create symmetrical, beautiful, and unexpected patterns from complete chaos.

Please remember: This is a simulation - it is not a game as such, though you can control the simulation in various ways. You really need to know about Conway's Life simulation to enjoy it. ( for some background)

What's New in Version 1.6

New Toolbar for onscreen control
New : Draw !! Now you can draw directly with the mouse on the board to create your own patterns to work with - click the "Draw" button to toggle between "Draw" and "Erase" modes.
New: Two new wooden texture backgrounds
