Basically, Code wars is pretty much the same, except its written in Java, with the source available. The robots are controlled via a very simple Virtual Machine. At the moment there are 30 instructions, all of which are straighforward. Stuff like Add, Subtract and Move data.
The idea of this site is to start up a robot warfare competition... Hopefully I'll make the site so people can enter their own bots, and pitch them against each other direct from the website. If you're interested contact me and I'll put some more effort into the site
I coded the actual program yesterday and today, so its a bit scruffy (esp. by 3am today - I tried to comment quite a bit tho')... Since the source is available, it'd be great if people could help bugfix, tidy up code, make editors, and maybe make the view of whats going on a bit nicer and faster.
If you want to mail me Robots, Bugfixes, etc. my mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
