Robo Battle Pigs is a game of robot combat where you program a series of moves in an attempt to destroy all opposing pigs. SDG implements the Continuous Feedback variant only! This is a more controlled and deliberate game and fits well within the SDG paradigm. This implementation supports 2-8 players.

Aaron 2 Come on, we're talking robot combat pigs! It doesn't get much better than this.

Laurie_Menke 2 Just a hilarious, light-hearted roll in the mud! :8)

morganfitzp 2 Hilarious. Especially when players swap witticisms.
nycavri 2 Stoopidly addictive (not to mention mindless) fun. The only game on SDG where I don't care who wins or loses!

molnar 1 Fun. "Continuous feedback" takes some getting used to, but it seems to work in this context.

papa_bear 1 No game has a better name. It is also great fun to play. It involves the necessity of anticipating opponents' moves which is inherent in simultaneous games. One-on-one rewards planning, but I suspect B.A.S.H. is more of a wild, exciting free-for-all.
abdekker -1 Clever, fun game, but it does gets tedious after a while. Two competant players, one who studies assidously and the other not at all, will probably score around 50% in a long series of games. Hardly enticing!

A suggested improvement would be to write the full moves alongside the shorthand list to help newbies.
shadowfirebird -1 would be great if the game was actually implemented as designed
dralius -2
neilb -2 A poor implementation of a potentially good game idea. Doesn't match the rules, which doesn't help.
