Cellular automata (CA) are elegant 2D simulations that follow a very simple set of live/die rules. The best known example of one is Conway's Game of Life.
I could personally spend ages looking at the patterns that emerge when playing with this sort of thing – which is a nice feature for any game that profits based on the length of time spent playing (Ads... *wink* *wink*).

At least 256 - potentially more.
The total neighbours any single cell has, plus whether the cell is alive or dead are compared to simple born/live/die conditions. For example, a dead cell with exactly 3 live neighbours will become alive (in the default example).
I wanted to keep the demo's logic minimalist to make sure it was easy to understand. Therefore, I left out as much complexity as possible.
If something didn't add to the game's logic I didn't include it... you'de want to customise the UI and art anyway right?
