Game of Life

This is a clone of John Conway’s Game of Life, made in java from scratch.

This is a very basic implementation, with its features including: the ability to play and pause the simulation, control the speed of the simulation, and a few presets of interesting patterns. Trying to avoid swing, I implemented my own buttons, and rendered the entire game using java.awt.

This was a school project for Computer Science 20 made in around a month of in-school time. Overall I’m pretty proud of how it turned out, given the short time frame, and my limited knowledge at the time.
