Mindrover – 3D strategy/programming game

MindRover is an Intelligent Robot Simulation or a 3D strategy/programming game. This is a new genre that encompasses the depth of play found in strategy games with a new concept in player control. You get to program the intelligence of robotic vehicles.

You are a researcher on Europa, a moon of Jupiter. In your free time you re-program the rovers to race around the hallways, battle it out with mini lasers and rocket launchers, and find their way through mazes.

Once you have chosen a challenge, equip your vehicle (hovercraft, wheeled or treaded) with various sensors, movement components, and weapons. Then program the behavior of your vehicle in a graphical interface where you wire the components together and set their properties. Then let it go in the arena and watch how it does!

Features include:

  • Captivating combination of mental stimulation and action.
  • Immersive, 3D user interface.
  • Support for transparent objects and textures, colored lighting, and special effects.
  • Digital soundtrack on CD.
  • Enticing, fully-realized space station to explore with lots of fun details.
  • Accurate robotic physics.
  • Dynamic game experience, with open-ended game play.
