An ongoing "King of the Hill" (KotH) tournament in which players use the C++ language to create a control program for a robot. Your robot then fights each of the other robots "on the hill". If you do well enough, your robot will "make the hill", bumping the lowest robot from the hill.

Robots have the ability to scan for opponents, fire a cannon, move, and determine current position and status.

Conceptually based on C-Robots written for the IBM PC by Tom Pointdexter.
