Everyone is on vacation over here. But I' still here but want to do
something else for a change.
So I thought it would be nice to join some programming-contest. But I
couldn't find any I liked.
Well, but as a developer you can build your own. So I did.
The idea is simple: there's a maze and you have a mouse. Steer the mouse
through the maze and find the cheese. When your mouse found the cheese,
the cheese is re-located and you have gained a point.
The only information that the mouse gets is which turn it is, which
directions it can choose from and if the cheese was found in the prior
turn. Ow, and when the cheese is near, your mouse can smell it...
It' difficult to create a game that is fair and does not have a
'trivial' solution. So I'm really curious if there are people who like
to develop their own mouse.
You can download a starter-kit from her:
There are Linux and Windows server-executables. You can create your own
mouse to connect to the server and play the game.
At this moment I don't want to distribute the SquiziMouseServer's source
code. So that it's not possible to just use some of the logic used in there.
You can see the mice in action here: http://youtu.be/e5yyymMtV5Q
