You are a spelunker who fell through a rock chimney into a dark cave infested with…aliens! Good thing you brought your headlamp and infinite-ammo grenade launcher, like you always do when exploring caves! You quickly find you are not the first, and the last guy to fall in left charcoal markings to navigate by. Essentially one ten-minute level with boss at the end. End screen shows stats and saves best stats for comparison, and lets you restart game or quit. No saved game…if you die you restart. Use Pause menu to quit game (or Alt-F4).

Hit Escape to pause. Then, move cursor with mouse and left-click to “activate” cells. Use scroll wheel to zoom in and out, and right-click-drag the canvas to pan it around. Hit Escape again to unpause and watch it evolve.

Fellow student Unity developers might want to notice the use of a coroutine in the Update method of the Board.cs script, necessary to keep the game from becoming unresponsive on each generation.

The source code and complete Unity3d project for Unity 5.5.0f3 is available here:
