Description

Watch life evolve in the palm of your hand! Oddly hypnotic and relaxing, Artificial Life is a simulation of the growth and evolution of microorganisms - basically artificial life forms. Initially, each organism is given a random set of rules governing its behavior. If the rules end up being useful for survival, the organism may live long enough to mate with another organism and pass its genetic code on to some offspring.

Over time, the organisms with the most useful behaviors will pass on their genetic code, leading to interesting patterns of behavior unfolding before your eyes - flocking behaviors, solitary predatory tactics, scavenging, and hiding are some examples - and all this behavior is evolving from total randomness.

Two modes of play!

* Sandbox Simulation

* Survival.

In Sandbox Mode, you can adjust environmental factors as well as the chromosomes defining the behavior of individual protozoa. There is no overall goal in Sandbox mode, other than to enjoy watching life evolve over time.

In Survival mode, you get to test your own custom protozoa against a random population. See if you can do better than natural selection. The goal is to have your protozoa survive as long as possible. The simulation ends when your custom protozoa dies.

Controls:

* Double-tap the screen to select an individual protozoa.

* Pan and zoom using using touch and pinch gestures to explore this virtual world.

And, if you don't like how some of the organisms are behaving, you can always resort to the finger of death and destroy that which displeases you.

Queue up some music with your iPod app and then launch this app for some relaxing times in the microscopic world of Artificial Life.

Thank you all for the feedback! It is appreciated. As time and practicality permits, more suggestions will be incorporated into newer updates. You've all suggested lots of great ideas!

The Science Behind the Simulation

This app was inspired by the computer science technique known as Genetic Algorithms. The idea behind genetic algorithms is to apply evolutionary techniques such as inheritance, mutation, and selection to computing problems. I thought, why not go full circle and apply these techniques to a basic biology simulation? This app reflects one such attempt. I hope you enjoy it!

What's New in Version 2.5

iOS 7 compatibility
Added support for 4" retina display
Increased maximum population size to 1200

4/5 stars

Extraordinary!

:
I absolutely enjoy running simulations with this whilst I do things like homework.

Setting rules that determine the social habitat based on countless options and the order in which your instructions are put to play, tweak so many outcomes of behavior that is amusing to watch.

I would like a little more interaction with the world though and I have some good ideas that I will edit into this post later.

4/5 stars

Good game

:
Fun to watch your protazoa evolve, should make more stages of evolution

5/5 stars

I love this game/simulation!

:
I think that most of these reviews have good ideas, so instead of restating I'll say look below. Also my suggestion is that there should be 2 or 3 levels of complexity, mostly for sandbox mode (I don't know how to work it into survival). That way you can do level 1 to get the feel for it, 2 to get going, and 3 to really challenge you.
