Submission + - RobotWar: A Tournament of Programming (filfre.net)

Faust7 writes: In the rarified world of programming games, Silas Warner's RobotWar for the Apple II (originally for CDC's PLATO system) is a classic.

Computer Gaming World, at the time, went so far as to sponsor tournaments of the game. Blogger Jimmy Maher will resurrect such a tournament if sufficient interest demonstrates that RobotWar isn't too kludgy or archaic for a modern technical audience. I say have at it!
