From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

TankAI is a Robocode clone written in Microsoft Visual C# 2005 by Michael T. Moosman. TankAI is currently in beta and no official release date has been set. Like Robocode, TankAI is designed to help people learn programming in a fun environment and can be challenging for developers of all experience levels.



Developers learn techniques from the sample tanks provided until they feel comfortable creating their own tank. Tanks fight in a battlefield for victory. Points are scored by hitting opposing tanks with bullets, ramming into opposing tanks, and surviving until the end of a round.
