Default Forgot the name of this great game...

Hi all,

I've been looking everywhere to find this ios game from a few years back. I've totally forgotten the name of the game, and haven't had luck taking the obvious measures to find it again (I periodically purge my phone of games, searching my App Store history has been fruitless, and googling/searching TA with keywords has been fruitless.) So I am hoping the good people of this forum might remember the name of this game.

Here's what I remember about the game, which has an unusual game mechanic. You duel an opponent for control of a grid. Prior to the duel, you set a sequence of moves in place (e.g. move forward, turn right, attack, plant a seed which becomes a new unit). Then the pattern you defined duels the opponent's pattern, and the simulation runs until equilibrium. The goal is to fill more than 50% of the grid. Then after the match you compete against harder AI, or human-posted patterns of the leaderboard. The game reminds me strongly of Conway's Game of Life, but with battling algorithms. Does this game sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks much for your help.

Atlas

It sounds like maybe Real Racing 3, or it could be Table Top Racing. Give those two a look as it may be one of those.

Under the updates tab in App Store there is a "purchased" option to review apps you previously had... maybe that would help.

Default Found it!

Thanks undead cow- that was a great suggestion. I forgot I used to have a different App Store login, and I searched that and found it.

Survivium, great little game. TA info about it is [URL="http://toucharcade.com/games/survivium®"]here[/URL], in case others are interested.

This function became difficult for me now that I have over 1600 apps in my backlog. I have found that using AppShopper to track and rate my purchases has helped me to keep track of my favorites from years past.

Try managing over 5000 apps.

1600? 5000?!?

All of a sudden I don't feel so bad about my appaholism, as it seems minor in comparison.

Anyone with less than 1500 has a casual relationship with games. I tend to use my Purchased tab as my back catalog, then I hide all the junk I've downloaded or games I know I will never play again (which is most things). I think I have about 200 in purchased and about 3000 in hidden. Sometimes I buy stuff I apparently already had! (So it's free!)

Good suggestion with AppShopper, will review. I agree this function is cumbersome with long load times... but if you have the patience to scroll through stuff then some older gems might stand out for you. I spent about an hour going through purchase history and enjoyed it.
