jk-ware Universe of LIFE Theater is a playful PC application with forms of microorganism.
Each form can be re-sized to display at the full screen resolution, or they can be arranged in a side-by-side format or in other overlapping or stacked formats. The selected arrangement can be saved to the later recall as configuration.
Idea of the game is, to let beautiful graphic forms and surprising shapes of microorganismen originate from as simple as possible initially-patterns in the following generations.
To this, Universe of LIFE offers you comfortable support:
the graphic dialog-side offers possibilities about the output-mode, the color-palette or to vary the cell-size.
The generations dialog-side enables to determine the incremental width and minimum-time of the indicated generations and the arithmetic-rule itself again.
You can let originate with the inputs of the shape dialog-side through a multiple change of the arithmetic-rule within a course complex microorganisms or can look for new, remarkable arithmetic-rules.
In the colors- and palette-dialog-side, the color-like look of the generations is influenced for the game-course.
To this you experience closer details over the context-help in the dialog-forms (? – key or F1-button), or over the content-button in the help-application.
You can manipulate also the current generation:
to this you simply choose “cell-input” in the Universe of LIFE menu or press the F2-key and place the cursor with the mouse or the cursor-buttons on the game field-position that you would like to alter. By activity of the left mouse-button or the enter-key, an existing cell is removed at this position or a new cell is born in an empty-field.
The input-plane becomes selected with the mouse-wheel or with the a- and s-button of the keyboard.
In the status bar, the cell-coordinates are shown for additional control.
