The treat at the end is totally worth beating the game! So mesmerizing! Excellent work you've done! Not sure if it fits the theme, BUT the gameplay idea is quite unique!

I'm so glad someone took the time to get to the end-screen! Thank you for playing my game :D
The theme grab is loose, at best haha. The cells are considered to be "alive" in Conway's Game of Life, and the purpose of this game is to avoid the living. A stretch to call that evil.. or to call this game fun.. XD but I was just looking for an excuse to programming GoL =P

I've sense made a standalone simulator, with the ability to make some hella-neat patterns. If you liked the end-screen then you'll surely love this!

I wished I could just hold an arrow key, but it did make me feel like a struggling little dot, trying to outrun a monster. Victory screen was my favorite part.

I totally intended to implement a hold-button movement XD my bad. 

Thanks for playing, and I'm glad you share my opinion of the end screen =P
I made a standalone simulator if you'd like to play around with it.
