HI,
I stumbled across this application the other day and I thought it might be useful and fun for some of you.
It's called Robocode and can be found here:

I'm having great fun designing robots and thinking up strategies and at the same time I'm practicing java.

Ditto.
A few changes I'd like seen plus the ability to have networked games of some sort (you think you're so big??? put your tank where your mouth is!!) but I just wasted my weekend on dom.SpaceInvaderV2

When I say I'm having fun that doesn't mean I don't get slaughtered

I'm on the home stretch for the Java 2 Cert exam in 2 weeks. When I finish (pass ? ) I'll get down to some serious robocoding.
Bye,
Terry
