You can create a design on the screen using the Joystick and/or keyboard, then observe in amazement as the computer expands on the original pattern. Between the patterns already programmed into this cartridge and your own imagination, your possibilities are limitless.
VIDEO EASEL is a unique combination of art and mathematics. It is also a terrific opportunity to learn about the fascinating game called "Life" (see below).
