Help me kill some time

Postby Mef » Sun Apr 23, 2006 2:37 pm

I wonder if Anyone knows some fun bot-fight game meeting following criteria:
- has good interface
- is easy to learn, yet provides lots of combinations
- is not based on using yet another shitty pseudo-assembler language
???

You mean a progamming game, where you program the bots for tasks like destroying enemies?

The best one I can think of is an old DOS game called Omega. That's a game where you design, not just program, a robot tank from the chassis to the weapon it uses. You can even create the "arenas" where the machines duke it out. The interface is Windows-like, so it shouldn't be to hard to get around in.

It's considered abandoned so it should be freely available on the net. Try The Home of The Underdogs to start, or try searching the net to find it.

I suppose you have tried robocode http://robocode.sourceforge.net/ it's written in java and i think the
bots are programmed in java also.

never tried but i have seen some combats in a lan party and it looked good
