Virtual world of plants and animals.

Overview

Crittersim is a simulation program that runs a section of a virtual world. There are plants and animals and some semblance of natural selection going on.

This includes the most fundamental pieces for a simulation. This interactive simulation will hopefully entertain the curious.

In it you can control various characteristics such as the rate of plant seeding, apply herbicide and pesticide, and observe how various species compete for limited resources. Using an advanced editing mode you can even create your own species or modify existing ones in one fell swoop.

Features: Lame Ease Of Use: Lame Value: Lame $10 for something un-finished Stability: Who cares But for the fact I was searching around for simulators for my nephew, I would never have even looked at this useless & pointless download. • No age group would be interested in this garbage. • No real graphics, just moving blobs and graphs. • No sounds or music • Nothing to keep anyone interested for more than 1 second. I wouldn't download this lame excuse for a simulator ever again even if the author offered me $10 !

I don't think the previous reviewer quite got the purpose of this little app. Although the name may be somewhat confusing, this is not a "game" type simulator. It has to do with species competition for limited resources, and whether a balance will be reached, or will they oscillate indefinitely. Do a search also for "logistic difference equation" to find out more about chaos and species competition equations.
