Programming Contests With Missiles

Back when computer games were still pretty much for the geeky set, there was a nifty game called (I think) Robot Wars. The premise was that you could outfit a robot with various weapons and drop it into an arena to do battle with other people’s bots. The catch was that you had to program the robot’s logic yourself, and couldn’t control it directly during the match — it would just run the program you created. I’ve had the idea of doing an updated version of this game for modern game players, with realistic 3D environments, more flexible robot design, etc. But these guys apparently are in the process of beating me to it, more power to them. Now if they’ll just commit to a Mac version, I’ll be the happiest of campers.
