BoxCar 2D Alternatives

BoxCar 2D is described as 'The program learns to build a car using a genetic algorithm. It starts with a population of 20 randomly generated shapes with wheels and runs each one to see how far it goes. The cars that go the furthest reproduce to produce offspring for the next generation' and is an website in the education & reference category. There are four alternatives to BoxCar 2D, not only websites but also apps for Windows, Linux and Mac. The best alternative is Genetic Cars 2, which is both free and Open Source. Other great sites and apps similar to BoxCar 2D are Biogenesis, Cambrian Explosion and Egg Worm Generator.

    Egg Worm Generator by Kyle Gabler. This was supposed to be a shooter, where you shoot peacefully evolving creatures. But I didn’t finish, and the creatures turned out too stupid to fight anyway.
