Cell Life is a colourful implementation of John Conway's Game of Life. It is not a game as such but a mathematical model designed to simulate basic life with the birth and death of cells.

It provides a fascinating and mesmerizing visual experience watching the patterns of cells living, being born and dying. You can also interact by bringing alive individual cells or firing "gliders", collections of cells that because of their shape glide diagonally across their universe.

To interact, choose touch and drag your finger across the screen to bring cells alive. For gliders, choose the gliders option, and drag in the direction you would like them to start heading.
