CodeRally eclipse game teaches you Java
Anonymous Reader writes "CodeRally is a Java-based, real-time programming game based on the Eclipse platform that runs on many platforms including Linux and the Mac. It uses the Eclipse platform and a very simple API that allows users unfamiliar with Java to easily compete while they learn the Java language. CodeRally was first used at the 2003 ACM International Collegiate Programming Competition. Players develop a rally car and make decisions about when to speed up, turn, or slow down based on the location of other players or checkpoints, their current fuel level, and other factors. Each player can test their car locally against a number of sample rally cars."
