after 3 days spent at GAMBIT-MIT (Thank you guys very much) for the Global game jam
We (Feras Iskanderani\ Programming and art, Alec Thomson\ Programming, Arshan Gailus\ Audio) made this game based on conway's game of life, I hope you guys like it.

the main idea of the game is to kill every one (yellow faces) on the screen.
there are many combinations in the game which is explained in the tutorial window.
for example:
if you place fire on top of a person he will burn and then die. and the fire will channel to the person next to it.
there are zombies and UFO. Infect water with a virus to create more zombies and much more
you play with the mouse :)
again u can find all the combinations in the tutorial window

The music is procedurally generated in real-time based on the current layout of the game map

The way you play with simple systems in your games is just... Brilliant and fun... I am becoming a big fan of yours :3


Great game, but I believe there should be away to see the list of reactions at any given time, not just in the main menu (which, by the way, you should also be able to return to).

Very nice.

Great level design.

It just didn't hold my interest for that long. Maybe consider upping the speed at which zombies spread, because it's dull to watch.

This is so awesome

Interesting puzzle game. I wish there were more levels.

I liked how the given tools and setup were very misleading in a lot of the levels. I'd fiddle around trying to see how to get the fire to form a chain and fail to kill everyone, and then eventually figure out that the zombies are the important bit.

And it was also nice that not everything was given to you in the instructions. Figuring out an alternative use for the UFO in the last level was very satisfying.

Make more, please! Or at least add a level creator so that users can share their creations.

thank you very much we are actually planning to expand the game add more ways to kill every one. and if we are happy with what we have we will add the map editor..
by the way what did u mean by "an alternative use for the UFO" ;)

Exelent game!

I have to say when I first looked at it I wasn't sure about the game, but once I got into it, it was wonderful and provided a very nice puzzle challenge! I would love to see more levels and maybe a better menu or even more ways to kill the people!
Oh and add a level editor so people can make and share their own, then this game will be perfect!

Retro-Gears responds:

more levels are on the way :)
