Collecting Robocode knowledge since 2007.

What is Robocode?

  • Robocode is a programming game. It can be used to teach or learn programming in Java or .NET. It can serve as a platform for exploring AI and machine learning techniques. Or it can be a competitive, addictive hobby that eats up all your time and CPU cycles.

  • Eclipse - Get Robocode setup with Eclipse, one of the most popular Java IDEs.
  • Robocode API - Not a "tool", per se, but you'll need to get familiar with it!
  • Graphical Debugging - Using Robocode's graphics support to draw on the battlefield can be a huge help in making sure your bot is doing and thinking what you expect it to.
  • Visual Studio .NET - You can now create .NET Robocode bots, too.
  • NetBeans - Prefer NetBeans to Eclipse? Here's a detailed guide to getting it setup with Robocode.
  • FloodGrapher - Graphing your bot's movement can offer a lot of insight into where you need to make improvements.
