First Test of an AI Player in Lifeforms

This prototype of the Lifeforms game is a two player game with the very first AI player. It is a human versus an AI player. The AI player is blue. The human player is red.



All moves in this experimental game are flip moves. On a flip, an empty cell becomes a live cell or a live cell dies. Once a player is done moving, the game is then advanced one Life generation, and it is the other player’s turn.

This initial AI player is very basic. It knows how to examine the board and find flip moves that will create the biggest change in the overall score. So, not very smart, but it is good to have a framework in place for testing AI players.
