Life - Java applet to project growth and decay based on simple rules
Version: 3Life is a graphical Java 1.1 AWT (GUI) applet to play John Conway's Game of Life. For reference, see articles in "Scientific American" (October 1970 and February 1971) and "Time" magazine (21 January 1974).
Operating System: Mac OS X
Life is not your average two-player game. You and the computer work together, with you making decisions, and the computer doing calculations. You define a board pattern and then watch as the computer projects future generations of this pattern based on rules for growth and decay.
Even with some of the most trivial initial patterns, you can obtain results that are both beautiful and intriguing.
How To Use: Unpack the archive, open a Terminal, in the opened Terminal navigate to the unpacked files and then run the app with the following command: "java Life3" (without the quotes).
