Default [GAME][SIMULATION] The Game Of Life (I need your patterns for Hall of Fans)






DESCRIPTION


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 instance.

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!


For any bug, suggestion or information contact me at:

I just corrected some little bugs.
I invite you to update the application and leave your opinion or a mark on the Android Market.
It is always pleasant for novice developers.

Awesome idea. Just read about this game of life in a Stephen Hawkings book.

Hahaha, I just had an idea:

What about a live wallpaper? You might have to make it look nicer and less dominant, but it would be fun and kinda nerdy, if you always had those "organisms" reproducing in the background

You're not the first to tell me that.
I will start creating a live Wallpaper.
But what do you mean about "make it look nicer and less dominant" ?
