GNU Robots
Real-time game

You construct a program for a robot, then watch him explore a world. The world has people who can hurt you, objects you can bump into, and food you can eat. The goal of the game is to collect as many prizes as possible before you are killed run out of energy. The robot program is written in a text file, which doesn't limit programmers to a visual interface. However, such an interface (which will generate Scheme code) is also available for use by non-programmers.
