Robot Battle is a great programming game in the footsteps of Apple II classic Robot War. From the official website: "Your goal is to create robots or teams of robots to compete in tournaments against friends and other players from around the world. Robots fight in a rectangular arena, attempting to eliminate each other by firing missiles, scanning with radar, dodging, ramming, avoiding mines, and collecting energy bonuses. The last robot standing is the winner. Once a battle is started, your creations are on their own. Robot Battle challenges you to design and code intelligent robots using a simple programming language.

Programming in Robot Battle is focused on strategy rather than low-level optimizations. This allows even inexperienced programmers to compete." If you enjoy programming games but find Robocode too daunting and MindRover too easy, Robot Battle nicely fills the gap. Formerly a shareware title, the game has been released into the public domain, and anyone can download the source code to improve it even further. Two thumbs up!
