UPDATE: Was able to increase performance by removing the option to toggle the sound on and off. Sorry if you hate the music. :X
Conway's game of life is a simulation with a few basic rules. You can interect with this version as its moving, or just set up the initial board and watch it go.
You should be aware that your computer may have trouble running this game. If that is the case, first turn of the music (by using the up arrow). If you still have problems, its because your computer is too old. :'(
Anyway, I hope you enjoy playing around with it. If you want to know more about the game check out the information link on the intro screen.
