Arrange cells. Build machines. Destroy enemies.
Each cell on its own has a simple function, like moving or spawning other cells. But when combined, more interesting behavior emerges...
Made for the GMTK Game Jam 2020 with the theme "Out of Control". In the game, you only set the initial conditions on the grid of cells. After pressing play, you can no longer control anything. Instead, a simulation unfolds, with each cell behaving based on its own set of rules..
The game is based on cellular automata like Conway's Game of Life. Atoms, molecules, cells - do they behave deterministically? And if they do, does combining them together change that?
Also the cell based machines you make in this game can grow exponentially, literally becoming out of control.
HOW TO PLAY
Rearrange cells in the build area. The goal is for them to interact in a way that results in an enemy cell being hit. Press the play button to run the simulation. Press the step button to execute one generation of the sim. Press the restart button to enable editing again.
Mover - moves in the pointed direction
Push - can be pushed in any direction
Slider - can be pushed only in one direction
Rotator - rotates adjacent cells 90 degrees each generation
Generator - Duplicates the cell behind it each generation
Immobile - Does not move in any direction, but can be duplicated by a generator
Enemy - Overlap any cell with the enemy to kill it

You'll need to think 4th dimensionally for Level 7. That is, there are multiple steps that depend upon the right timing of block movement
