Color Robot Battle is strategy game that actually teaches the player a simple programming language. It is not to be confused with the original Robot Battle that Spectral Associates did (later renamed Android Attack when the talking version came out). The game itself is sort of a graphical version of the mainframe/mini game Core Wars. The basic premise is that you program a robot using a variety of commands, as does your opponent, and then you set them up against each other, and see who wrote the better program (in other words, who destroys the other person's robot first). This game helps to teach a little bit of programming, and also a little of Artificial Intelligence.
