Select a colour and create an Automaton simulating life.
You can see how it evolves over time, every time you create a new Automaton the results will be different; you can even compare multiple Automata concurrently and simultaneously.
Not satisfied with how Evolution is going?
You can add more seeds to disrupt the Evolution process and see its results.
The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. It is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves. It is Turing complete and can simulate a universal constructor or any other Turing machine.
The universe of the Game of Life is a two-dimensional orthogonal grid of square cells, each of which is in one of two possible states, live or dead. Every cell interacts with its eight neighbours, which are the cells that are horizontally, vertically, or diagonally adjacent. At each step in time, the following transitions occur:
- Any live cell with fewer than two live neighbours dies, as if by underpopulation.
- Any live cell with two or three live neighbours lives on to the next generation.
- Any live cell with more than three live neighbours dies, as if by overpopulation.
- Any dead cell with exactly three live neighbours becomes a live cell, as if by reproduction.

This is a universal app, so purchasing it once enables you to play on macOS and iOS.
Lambda: Game of Life does NOT track your activity in any way, not Analytics nor any other event or behaviour metrics. Whatever you do with this app is up to you and we don't want to know about it.
