For those of you who don't know what CROBOTS is, let's quote its manual:
“CROBOTS ("see-robots") is a game based on computer programming...
Unlike arcade type games which require human inputs controlling some
object, all strategy in CROBOTS must be complete before the actual game
Game strategy is condensed into a C language program that you design and
write. Your program controls a robot whose mission is to seek out,
track, and destroy other robots, each running different programs. Each
robot is equally equipped, and up to four robots may compete at once.
CROBOTS is best played among several people, each refining their own
robot program, then matching program against program.
CROBOTS consists of a C compiler, a virtual computer, and battlefield
display (text graphics). The CROBOTS compiler accepts a limited (but
useful) subset of the C language. The C robot programs are aided by
hardware functions to scan for opponents, start and stop drive
mechanisms, fire cannons, etc. After the programs are compiled and
loaded into separate robots, the battle is observed. Robots moving,
missiles flying and exploding, and certain status information are
displayed on the screen, in real-time... „
