You'll be presented with the New Battle screen, where you pick the robots and options for a battle. For this battle, we'll try out MyFirstRobot, RamFire, and Tracker.

In Robocode, each battle consists of a number of rounds, as you'll see soon. For now, we'll leave it at the default of 10.
Finally, click on the Start Battle button to begin! Watch for Tracker's little dance as he wins rounds.
