I don't know if I dreamt about this or if it exists, here is the setup:

  • One textfield for code-input (probably javascript)
  • A playground with two or more robots/tanks.

By writing instructions you can decide how the robots should behave and have them battle each other out. The robots are autonomous once the game starts.

  • You should go to the game development part of stackexchange, this is just for actual games not a "setup" and programming. You'll defeinitely find people who will answer you there though. – Chessbrain Apr 5 '15 at 15:58

    @Chessbrain There are "actual games" that you play by writing code. Core War would be a classic example. – coneslayer Apr 6 '15 at 0:43
