Good Great time waster, rather entertaining, as surprising as that seems. Though two requests: As save function, as i aswell as some of the other reviewers would like to see generation 100, but i'm not going to leave my tablet alone without using it for that long. And maybe being able to decide what things get changed, like a creator mode, that lets you change and adjust at least one of the cars Overall great game

Simple bit of fun Could do with some sort of further interaction though. Maybe ability to save vehicles for a competitive leader board thing?
Brilliant! Can't really call this a game, per se, but it is an incredible evolution sim. Like others have said, a save feature would be the icing on the cake. Seeing five hundred or more generations of cars would be fascinating. Hell, I'd pay for a 2.0 of this thing, with saving and perhaps some control over the paramiters. As it is, it's a fun time waster and an interesting insight into how evolution works. Good job!
Profound, but boring This app is great at showing simplistic view of the evolutionary process and makes great cars after the 10th gen or so, but is horribly boring. It would be awesome to see it with a Build Your Own option or the ability to race online, but the chances of this are slim. Straightforward, but dull.
Fun, but needs ability to save It's awesome to see generations evolving. But it's frustrating that as soon as you close the app, all progress is lost and you have to start again.
Faulty algorithm You cannot mutate the best cars without keeping the original one in the selection. The mutations is more likely to be of negative value for the survival, so this approach will only kill the evolutionary process.
Great style, however Somebody made a knockoff of this, and added the functionality of designing a vehicle. Please make this a feature, i am in love with the style you guys use, the competitor's style is much less appealing. Otherwise very entertaining, just wish there were some variables to influence.
Really entertaining concept I love this idea, but it could be improved a lot. Maybe adding some customability to the first generation or the track. And the mutations don't seem subtle enough. Also maybe a fast forward or pause, when going to the next car it saves the data it would of had. And when you leave the app everything starts over and us really annoying.
Cool app Could do with some sort of save feature so you can continue evolving. Sucked to have to start over after shutting down, but i give 5 stars regardless. Keep up the good work.
Very dissapointed Had this running all night, got to generation 300, then went to check my messages, when i came back it was reset. Also this game needs to keep running when the device is in sleep mode or the app is running in the background
AČIŪ!!! Thank You! Pagaliau, kažkas padarė šitą ir androidui :) Tik reikia biškį pridėti controls, pvz ratų skaičius, mutacijų tikimybė ir t.t. Bet tai vistiek belekaip gera programėlė! ;) Finally someone made this for android also :) You just need to add some controls IE Wheel count, mutation % and so on. But still it is very cool app ;)
Incomplete Very glad someone has ported boxcar2d to Android, the web version is endless fun. Unfortunately, most of the functionality of the full program is missing (multiple tracks, car saving, configurable algorithms, continuing to run in background). I suppose it is to be expected, but I don't feel it's particularly usable right now. Also, the fonts show up very small on my Nexus 4, would appreciate more readable text.
UI needs improvement Good thing to observe, yet: 1. Please save some room for the screen by transferring contents on floating windows to on-screen captions, in smaller fonts; 2. Also, please name each car alphabetically, with number of digit showing generation, as now I cannot tell their heritage relations.
Pretty fun But misleading. I thought that you could shape. However it lost the star for not having a pause or play button. Fun otherwise.
Amazing I would love to see more features but I don't need them this is already amazing
Try it Fun and infinitive, wish there was more of these evolution and natural selection simulators
Fascinating and unique What a great app, I would love to see this concept expanded on. There is room for improvement eg user-configurable variables, but 5 stars nonetheless. Endlessly entertaining.
Cute but wtf I'm not seeing the point of this "game" bet it seems to function just fine I'm just missing the concept of if anyone know please let me know
:( Can you build cars? Please add that feature and I will give 5. Otherwise, great for entertainment, and sometimes laughs.
Its great but... It has everything an evolutionary game can have...well, almost. The game had it right with the graphs and statistics which truly made it entertaining. However, the ability to save a car and manipulate its "genes" really lacked the game's full potential. There really must be a way to save because if you are fortunate enough to last until generation 100 you would want to save your progress. Despite all this it is great and continues to be one of the better evolutionary simulation games out there
Interesting how you can selectively breed cars using the "next car" button.
Tantalizing. Can't stop following the crazy natural selection. For 5 stars, Plus fix the size of windows and their text, unreadable in my Nexus9 w/ M. Also, to push a botton one has to touch on a higher position in the screen. As suggestions, the save option and allowing for tweaks during the evolution process.
epic a.i. requires a lot of study and it's great how you implemented with this work.
Build I will give you 5 stars if we can build our own cars
Very creative I only wish I could design the first car, or at least Influence it. Would also be nice to save then maybe share or post it in someway, so to see what others create and so on. A flyer or boat version would be awesome too. Lol, sorry, i really like sims and i think this has the real potential to change gaming altogether! Keep up the great work.
Wonderfully fun and interesting. Really makes you think.
It's cool but a little something for the users to do would be nice It gets boring without something to do. But I love watching
Brilliant App A simple idea, well-executed. It is lacking only one feature to make it 5/5 ... a save function!
Interesting and fun! It's really fun to watch how each generation evolves & see what "genes" survive!
Need more options! More parameters to change! Like in BlindAM
Like a science experiment being run on your tablet.
Awesome Good, perfect copy of THE FIRST VERSION!!! This is version 1, the website version is already past 3!!! It NEEDS AN UPDATE! Thanks ;p
. Needs mutation rate, wheel amount selection and save feature
Good but faulty generational changes Instead of always mutating the good it should make 3 iterations. One the same as the original and 2 with mutations. This way only good mutations reproduce as per evolution. Your top 3 will breed but any mutations that hinder them will be phased out.
Great app Needs expanding, ie more evolutions, possibilty of two cars running against each other (split screen) choice of evolution ect. So much can be done with this.
No interactions Almost like a video that goes on forever
Very interesting Would love to have the ability to create my own cars to test against evolution too!
Not really a game but... Absolutely addicting to watch, the first time I launched this I stared at it for literally an hour and a half :)
BoxCar2D – where physics, evolution, artificial intelligence, and genetics collide.BoxCar2D imitates random evolution of cars based on natural selection.How it works:Each generation has 10 candidates and their performance is based on the distance they travel. Every car has 30 seconds to finish the track (90 meters or until the engine stalls). Track contains randomly generated […]
