Game of Life is a famous model devised by John Conway in 1970. Imagine a universe existing of square cells on an infinite flat grid. A cell can contain life or be empty. At each game step, live cells can stay alive, die, or multiply - according to 3 simple rules: • if a live cell had less than 2 live neighbors (at the previous state), it dies of loneliness • if a live cell had more than 3 live neighbors, it dies of overcrowding • if a dead cell had exactly 3 live neighbors, it comes to life Now imagine a civilization starting from 3 cells placed in a row. What will it evolve into? Can there be still patterns in this universe? Yes, the simplest one is 2x2 rectangle. Is it possible to build a civilization that will move across the universe? Yes, there are such "spaceships", and the smallest one consists of just 5 cells, so you can even try to discover it yourself. LifeSim brings this amazing universe into your pocket. Tap on a few cells and see what they will evolve into. Or explore hundreds of known beautiful patterns. Or try to protect a still life from a spaceship moving towards it.
