A first fight: ‘The SmartRandomPlayers’ v ‘The FoodEatingPlayers’

Pelita is Actor-based Toolkit for Interactive Language Education in Python.

Description of the Game

Two teams, of one or more bots, compete in a maze that is filled with food. The maze is split into two parts, the left and the right half, where each team owns one half of the maze. Each bot can have one of two states, depending on its position in the maze. In its own half, the bot is a destroyer. In the enemy half, the bot is a harvester. As a destroyer, a bot can destroy enemy harvesters in its own half. As a harvester, a bot can eat food that belongs to the enemy. The ultimate goal is to eat all the enemy’s food.

Your task as user is to implement one or more players to control bots. Your players must implement the intelligence to navigate your bots successfully through the maze, destroy the enemy’s harvesters, and eat the enemy’s food.
