Sharks v. Fish is an interactive graphical simulation that demonstrates the natural population relationship between predator and prey. While based on science, the real purpose of this simulation is to entertain.

Based on the WA-TOR computer program described in the December 1984 issue of Scientific American, the battle is played out on a planet covered with water, populated with only fish and sharks.  This version, however, is like no other. It is unique in that the amount of passion and programming effort put into it will never be equaled by any coder. Sharks v. Fish  is a highly polished and complete interpretation of this famous simulation. It has brought me so much joy that I had to put it on the Internet for all to experience. I am proud of this work and I think you will enjoy it. Please download for free.

Set individual life parameters manually or let it randomly generate them, resulting in fascinating  color patterns as the species try to survive. Sharks hunt. Fish flee, Experiment to design successful simulations or watch as creatures become extinct. 

Scientific theory and program operation, including command line usage, are detailed in the Docs folder that will be installed in the Start Menu.

Runs in Full Screen or Windowed Mode.

Recommended usage: Use the default automatic mode. Put it on a big screen TV. Watch and Relax. It will run forever.
