Nifty Life is a cellular automata program for running John Conway's Game of Life.

Nifty Life is so named because it has a number of nifty features, such as:
  • Document-based architecture, allowing you to save and open Life pattern files, and have multiple windows open at once
  • Ability to save and open .lif files for cross-platform compatibility
  • Adjustable running speed, including unbounded speed when desired
  • Adjustable grid dimensions and cell size
  • Scrollable windows so that the grid can be larger than your screen's size
  • Use of color to indicate cell
What's New
Version 1.2 adds the following:
  • The toolbar is now fully featured and customizable.
  • The life rules are now editable via the document settings panel.
  • Added a new application preference called "Auto Stop". Improved performance in some cases when cell coloring is turned on.
Requirements
PPC, Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Very nice, does what it says it does, runs moderately fast... but while it's running, my Mac G5 emits a faint high-pitched squeal which it never makes at any other time, and so more than a minute or two of using this software gives me a piercing headache.

This is not a real game. It is a mathematical thingy, based on conway's game of life.
