RRobots is a simulation environment for robots, these robots have a scanner and a gun, can move forward and backwards and are entirely controlled by ruby scripts. All robots are equal (well at the moment, maybe this will change) except for the ai.

RRobots v0.4.0 Tournament release
Run hundreds of battles and generate nice html tables showing every aspect of the outcome.
Create team robots, and wreak havoc on your uncoordinated enemies.
After a lot of Bugfixes and implementing slugfests of up to 8 robots, this is RRobots v0.2.
The robot interface didn't change so all your creations should still work.
If you need some challenge look in the forums, good bots are starting to apear there.
Well a rather uneducated try of a guy who should continue to code in ruby (or even c++, delphi, java, python or whatever - except html :) - isn't someone out there who could do better?
- Simple OSD for robot health (thanks to Terje Tjervaag)
- Alpha dithered explosions (thanks to Jannis Harder)
Uh, oh, sorry to my linux friends, i should have used '/' instead of '\' right from the start.
