GoLinvadersEver wondered what a mash-up of Space Invaders and Conway's Game of Life might look like? Well, wonder no longer..!

I built an SVG version of the idea, supplied here as a working, single-file game for playing and hacking. Open in your browser, or right-click-save a local copy to play or hack.

All game sprites and behaviours are governed by the rules of the Game of Life - you die when your sprite gets 'dissolved' via the rules. The game grid is 'toroidal' (wraps top-to-bottom, side-to-side).

How To Play

Defend your corner of the grid from Light-/Medium-/Heavy-Weight SpaceShips (L/M/HWSS), plus any collision chaff.

Fire Gliders to disrupt the grid. Score a point for each Glider fired.

If your sprite (the Boat with the red nose) gets munched, it's Game Over.
