The Game Of Life

A rough draft of John Conway's Game of Life (

Press 'p' to pause, and click when paused to change state of a cell.

Features to come (in rough order of priority):

zoom and pan
more and better ways to interact with it
ability to change the rules
more states than on/off (colour?)
any other suggestions

Clicking when paused does nothing.


Thanks for that. Sorry, I realized should have made that clearer - when I say 'paused', I mean the pause you get by pressing 'p', not the pause you get by pausing Greenfoot's execution. Does that help?


OK, it works now.
