An implementation of Alex Randolph's game Ricochet Robots

Project description


A simple implementation of Alex Randolph's board game Ricochet Robots including solver.


Compile the Java code with the command:

mkdir --parents bin
javac -classpath java/lib/commons-cli-1.3.1.jar \
    -d bin \


To run, type

./ -b <board> -g

This will place four robots in random positions on the board, pick one of the targets and one of the robots to reach it, try to find a solution (within the move and time contraints specified), and then give a graphical representation of the moves.

E.g., if you want to solve the board 3 in the repository, simply run

./ -b boards/3.txt -g

For a full description of all available command line options, simply type
