Game of life

I made a flash version of Conway’s ‘Game of Life’ a while ago.

In an early version, I failed to clear out the array of cells which needed to change state that round (from dead to alive, or alive to dead).  The result was far more mathematically arbitrary, but made some interesting patterns. In this version, as the dots flicker across the screen I see a robot, an alien, a fat man, a mouse wearing a crown, and a smug tiger.  It’s way more space invaders than the proper version.
