Developer website: Karl von Laudermann

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 age
  • Wrap around

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
