    Pred & Prey | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    I created the Pred and Prey app as an experiment in evolutionary principle. This little tech demo setups an environment containing plants, herbivores and carnivores.


    The animals have simple behaviours; eat, run, mate or wander.

    The resulting offspring of a successful mating will inherit characteristics form their parents; range of sight, speed and size. However, the inheritance includes a chance of mutation...

    Over the generations, the animals become better suited to their environment. Pressures of predation and competition [for limited resources] force the animals to adapt over subsequent generations. These changes are not scripted but occur by survival of the fittest.

    Absolutely pointless app, but I find it fascinating to watch!

    Comments welcome.
