What is Conway's Game of Life?
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.
