Hey, I just got done programming the Game of Life simulation, which is a very easy game in terms of the rules, but produces some really complex results. I had a fun time programming it and was wondering if anyone knew of games/simulations that are quick and fun to program and are pretty cool to watch or play afterwards, like the Game of Life was. Any ideas? Thanks.

Right now I''m working on a game where you can create ''bots'' with various parts, write simple AIs, and then have them battle.

make a fire effect and mess with the parameters or draw stuff in it . you can probably uses your gol sim as a basis. the fire effect if you don''t know uses two buffers. go though every pixel in one buffer and set it''s color based on the average of it''s pixels around it put that color on the drawing buffer. you can probably find it on the internet somewhere..

I heard about something along the lines of what JNewt was making called Corewars, and some variations of it in C++. That sounds pretty cool... but in games like corewars, if im not mistaking, you''d have to have 3 executables interacting with each other - I have no clue how to do that. Anyone try to write a program that maybe reads 2 text script files and have them battle? That might be pretty interesting.
