About The Game
--------------
Can you design a robot to best all challengers? To survive, your robot
must have better tactics, intelligence, and adaptability than all others.
Can you out think and out gun your opponents? This is the place to find out!
Build a robot and match your wits against up to five other robots in head
to head battles to the death. Watch your ANIMATED robots come to life with
stunning sound effects in matches of 1 to 65,500 games.

Robot creation starts by dreaming. How can your robot stay alive in an
open arena with five other deadly robots hunting it down? How can you
find and destroy the enemy before they find you? Of course the only way
to answer these questions is trial by fire. Build a few robots and watch
them get crushed by the simple sample robots provided with this game.
Eventually, you will be able to match wits with other skilled robot
designers.

If you are up to the challenge, enter your robots in the CONTEST. Send in
your robots to compete in a tournament against robots written by others
from all over the world.


Robot Creation
--------------
Robots are created using a simple scripting language that is clearly
described in on-line help. All you need is an ASCII text editor and an
imagination. Although helpful, no previous programming knowledge is
required. In fact, Robot Battle is a great way to start learning how to
program. Most modern computer systems are based on event driven techniques
very similar to those you will learn playing Robot Battle.

To learn more about designing your own robots, start the game and click
the help button. When the help dialog opens chose the 'Help Creating Robots'
option then press OK. This will start on-line help that explains how to
design robots. The on-line help is fully cross-referenced very easy to
use.

Most of the information provided in on-line help is also provided in a DOS
text file called 'manual.txt'. This file is provided for printing. It
contains information about designing robots, a commented sample robot,
descriptions of all scripting language functions and variables, and tips
and techniques.
