Online RoboCraft anyone?
April 24, 2012
You may have read my idea for a Mini Robotic Ant Farm. I just re-read it yesterday and today I had a new thought:
What? Think of a game of WarCraft or StarCraft with robots. There is a field with some obstacles. There are cubes scattered around. Two teams start with a single robot, a Builder, situated in the Home Base, where there is a Flag. The Builder is equiped with a gripper and has to go grab cubes, one by one, and build a protection Wall. As soon as the Wall is built, a second robot enters the team, this time a Warrior. The Warrior can lift up cubes with it's mighty arms and he can also kick them down if he gets to the other team's Home Base. The Builder can still gather cubes so the Warrior can build a Tower. As soon as the Tower is built, another robot enters the team. This robot is a Balista. It can shoot big arrows at the enemy fortress or robots, but it moves slowly. Together, the robots have to defend their Flag and capture the enemy flag and bring it to the Home Base. Each robot should be controled by a different person through internet, as in the Football game.
What do you guys think?
