Conway's Game of Life for the Pocket PC

Conway's Game of Life (aka "Life") is a mathematical toy which was discovered in 1970 and has been ported to almost every single kind of computer since then. I could not find a version for the Pocket PC, so I wrote one myself.

Before you start to even think about downloading this, it would be best to look at a web site which explains what it is all about. Here is a link to which explains it all - What is the Game of Life?.

Also, a Windows version of the program is a good place to start - Life32 is pretty grovy. My Pocket PC version can read and write files using the same format ".lif" files as that windows program. The download contains some of these, but they were too many to include them all. The full selection by Alan Hensel is fun to play with.

Still with me? This version runs on Pocket Windows 2002 and 2003, and was tested on a ViewSonic V37 and a Dell Axim x50v.
