Nope, not C&C :>  You're not that far off though!

For some reason it looks like some of Blizzard's work to me. Warcraft 3 maybe but, since I never actually played it, I doubt that's right  :P

It's not Warcraft 3.  Getting very close though!

I''m surprised! It looked like a little bit of a fantasy game, though I suppose there's no reason Sci-fi games can't take place on grass. They just tend not to  ;)

Sure, it'll be a necropost, but I really wonder, howcome? No one mentioned such a masterpiece...

You never get involved in a pig fight. If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun.

COLOBOT
g00gle rox ;)

Job done.
:D Beg me a huge pardon, but I've heard these words too often in days bygone to not associate em with exact and only character's voice:  Warcraft II - III Human Worker :)

As for game - seems shame to me that such kind of games won't achieve enough sales nowadays to make it worth developing :( ColoBot-CeeBot series kept me hooked for more than a year. Some community scripts made outstanding jaw-dropping effect. For example, script for big-gun bot involving rather accurate real-time ballistic calculations.

Yea, I like games that require you to think more than point and shoot. But as you say, g00gle, or rather tineye.com, rox. I just reverse-searched it. Might DL colobot and have a look at it.

Never heard of this game! It sounds amazing actually.. how well is the programming aspect handled?

Depends of what you want to get. For example, it's not an ordinary task to scan the whole surrounding surface to use this data later with something like A*, but, for most cases, interactive return values of target-detection and movement functions read through loops should be sufficient. The language itself is pretty much object-oriented, existing in-game classes/objects have a number of standartized attributes (inheritance used properly), enough to, say, write a script that helps moving bot's turret remain aimed despite yaw and pitch created by surface's bumps and gaps. Declaration of custom classes is also available. Normally programs are executed on a program-per-bot basis, but there is workaround somewhere to turn a single bot to the slightly laggy but all-seeing control-center.

Language / class reference manual / index included in-game, working examples provided. There are some handy undocumented functions though. They can be found there, among the many community-uploaded handy scripts. <edit: seems that files are removed, all that's left on this page to do is read descriptions and tremble in awe :(>

language's very basics (link is to Colobot's brother CeeBot, but the language is pretty the same).

If anyone decides to give it a try - be adviced: release date is somewhere around 2001, so expect some kind of relaxing puzzle-quest to get it working.
