The purpose of Instinct is the definition and simulation of cellular automata. For this end, entities are used which live in a 2D universe. They evolve through discrete time according to rules.
Game of Life (by John Conway) is by far the most popular cellular automaton of its kind. This is but one of the almost infinite possible structures that can be defined in Instinct.
To get started, the application offers a collection of tutorials with simple yet fascinating results. It will make you familiar with the concepts of cellular automata, and will give you a basic skillset for making your own simulations. The automata that are covered in the tutuorals include:
- Game of Life
- Other Life-like automata
- Cyclic cellular automata
- Greenberg-Hastings automata
- Multi-state Life-like automata (Brian's Brain)

Best App Ever So nice to have such a simple interface to simulate your own CA
Good Options This is more intuitive than the CA programs you can get for desktops. Options for color and time-based expiration for cells are neat. I wish you could have more options in the rules part, but this is still the best I've found with the most options.
One Request: Golly is by far the most popular software for cellular automata on desktops, so is there any chance that in the future there might be a tool for converting rules on the app to .rule files that Golly can read? That would be incredible. Otherwise, this app is fantastic!
Awesome game with one problem This is a very fun game. Only one problem: I can't make doors. What I want is a program that will make a door, have a creature exit, go to another building, and have the creature's tail become a door. Than have the door, about ten steps later, become another creature.
