The Game Of Life

Image

DESCRIPTION
The game of life is actually a cellular automaton devised by the mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
It's sort of a virtual world where many cells are living.
They reproduce and die under certain conditions.
This game does not need the player itself (kind of zero-player game), but we can make it more interactive by adding special patterns that will evolve in specific ways, or by changing the rules of the world, for instance.

The main features of my implementation are:

¤ Play / Pause / Reset / Random Buttons
¤ Changing the speed
¤ Changing the size of the world
¤ The world is shaped like a torus
¤ Changing the color:
- United
- Random
- Gradient
¤ Changing the shape of cells (11 available)
¤ Become master of the world by changing the rules:
- 12 predefined rules
- Create your own rules
¤ Library patterns (over 50):
- Oscillators
- Ships
- Guns
- Space fillers
- Other
¤ Possibility of sending patterns by email
¤ Create life or destroy it, simply by touching the screen!


For any bug, suggestion or information contact me at:

NOTE:
- Available in French and English
- Compatible with all screens
- Compatible with all android versions

I happen to love the idea, but you may fall into some legal issues regarding the name. Just be careful.

There is no way of any "legal issue"...
This name is not a Brand Name or stuff like that.
Moreover, I'm not making money on it, so ...

I thought about an app like this ever since we talked about this in class. I'm excited to try it out.

Unfortunately, there is - "The Game of Life" is a copyright of Milton Bradley.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_of_Life

I doubt they'll take any action, so you should be OK. But the point is they definitely could - regardless of whether or not you charge. I'm letting you know because a considerable % of devs I've talked to have had games pulled at some point or another by google because they didn't check copyright.

Other than that, it looks like a great app. Best of luck.
