Game of Life - Live Wallpaper with hundreds of patterns allows you to enjoy beautiful and charming wallpaper on your device.

THIS IS NOT A GAME! Please pay attention, that this is not a game actually, but emulation of life, made as live wallpaper.

The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.

The universe of the Game of Life is an grid of cells. Each of them can be alive or dead. Every cell interacts with its eight neighbors. In next generation some cells will be born, some will die. This is described by Conway's rules:
1. If dead cell has exactly 3 alive neighbors it will be born in next generation.
2. If alive cell has less then 2 alive neighbors it will die due to loneliness, but if it has more then 4 - it will die due to over-population.
The player isn't directly involved in the game, but only generates the initial arrangement of alive cells.

You can read more about Conway's Game of Life here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_Game_of_Life

So you can:
- Make double tap (or tap with two fingers) to switch between a lot of patterns
- Make triple tap (or tap with three fingers) to generate full-screen mash
- Go through list of patterns and star favorite, to see them more often (up 2 for free)
- Cell size & fps can be changed in settings
No Ads! Good optimized algorithm!

    It's great if you don't care to make your own patterns, as it has plenty of built-in ones, but I was hoping for an option to set a custom pattern. I distinctly remember there being a live wallpaper that allowed this, but if I can't find one, this is definitely my second choice of those I've seen so far Full Review

    Classy! But small problem... EDIT: Fixed it! Works now, Thanks!---- Looks great and its very cool! No ads, no bs, everything is great!... Except that I use an LG G3, with no physical home button. It compensates by allowing a doubletap to wake it up, and a doubletap on the background to put it to sleep. Thus, changing the pattern sleeps my phone, and I cannot do a triple tap! Can you please make an option to hide that text? Great otherwise. Nice work! Thanks! Full Review

    Great Live Background, based off an awesome A-Life concept and exectued well. Only thing I would say is for some of the perpetual designs, having multiple of them on the screen in different places would make it look better (because some of them can be quite small). Otherwise, great work. Full Review

    Amazing Designwd perfectly aside from the one flaw which are the instructions that appear on the LWP every so often. In future versions, if you could make a way to disable thia, that would be amazing, but it's still a minor problem. Full Review

    It is a great background and is awesome, however, my phone doesn't support triple tap and I can't get the (growingly annoying) tutorial messages out of view. A switch in setting to turn it off would be nice. Full Review

    Good, but it would be nice if you could manually select the pattern. Tapping through to find one I like isn't too fun. Full Review

    Retro One of the coolest wallpapers I've seen. With the right settings it wont drain your battery as fast, just pick darker colors and lower frame rate to about 10. Full Review

    Very cool, but I think it would be better if you could set your own starting pattern and program them in. Full Review

    I use a Wiley Fox Swift phone, very unusual, but the instructions still pop up on the background, and I cannot seem to fix it. Other than that, its great! Full Review

    I love it I just got this app but I already love it, I can't help but smile at how cool it is! I would really like to be able to have it change more colors on it's own without my batter being low but even just that setting is really awesome. Keep up the awesome work! Full Review
