The game for the Entelect Challenge 2021, is Galaxio. For the first time since Bomberman, we will be introducing a multiplayer game. But unlike Bomberman, Galaxio will see more than 4 contestants playing in a Battle Royale style game.
Every year, the Entelect Challenge is based on a theme from popular games. This year’s game being Agar.io, which lends itself to a vast multiplayer universe – a perfect fit for the 10th anniversary of the Entelect challenge.
You will be coding an artificial intelligence (AI) player, or bot, to challenge other AI players. In a match your player is a ship which will compete against a variable number of other ships in an ever-decreasing circular map, representing the universe. The goal is to be the last ship alive. Your ship will need to consume food, collide with other players, avoid obstacles such as asteroid fields or gas clouds and use other elements such as wormholes to your advantage.
Code an intelligent bot and stand a chance to win a share of R200K in prizes.
