Please, please, please don't get the Game of Life Screen Saver confused with the board game, The Game of Life, because I did that, and I was dumbfounded when I found out that it was not. The Game of Life Screen Saver is a windows screen saver that portrays the game, Life lab, but you only get to watch.

This is a pretty good screen saver, but I would have liked sounds, and better graphics, like in some other screen savers. I like to watch life forming on my screen as much as the next guy, but I got sick of watching a game that I didn't like to play in the first place, never mind watch it being played. Despite that, I recommend this screen saver, if you are looking for one, because it is very original, and you will more than likely get a kick out of watching shapes and squares get bigger, get smaller, and morph.
