Robocode is a programming game where the goal is to code a robot to compete against other robots in a battle arena.
The player is the programmer of the robot, who will have no direct influence on the game. Instead, the player must write the AI of the robot telling it how to behave and react on events occurring in the battle arena. So the name Robocode is a robocods for “Robot code”.
The game is designed to help you learn Java, and have fun doing it. Robots are written in the Java programming languageand the Robocode game can run on any operating system supported by the Java Platform, which includes all common operating systems like Windows, macOS, Linux etc. Rpbocode battles take place in a battlefield, where small automated 6-wheeled robots fight it out until only one is left.
Please notice that Robocode contains no gore, no blood, no people, and no politics. The battles are simply for the excitement of competition that we love so much. There are explosions, however, but these can be turned off if they are offending.
If you have not done so already, the first step is to download and install Robocode. Once ai have installed Robocode, you should run a few battles to see how it works, then move on to building your first robot. The Robocode game was originally started by Matthew A.
Nelson, aka Mat Nelsonas a personal endeavour in late and became a professional one when he brought it to IBM, in the form of an AlphaWorks download, in July At this point, the development of Robocode was somewhat stopped. In the mean while, the Robocode community began to develop their own versions of Robocode in order to get rid of bugs and put new features into Robocpde, the Contributions for Open Source Robocode and later on the RobocodeNG project by Flemming N.
As nothing seemed to happen with Robocode in more than a year, Flemming N. Larsen took over the Robocode project at SourceForge as administrator and developer in July The RobocodeNG project was dropped, but the Robocode variant, which contained a lot of contributions from the Robocode community was merged into the official Robocode with version 1.

Since then, a lot of new versions of Robocode have been released with more and more features and contributions from the community. For more history, read the Chronicles.
