Code Character

Code Character is an online AI programming match, where one writes C++ code to control troops in a real-time strategy game. Test your code against yourself, our AIs and then everyone else’s. Challenge others to improve your rating as you climb up the leaderboard!

Prize Money INR 50,000

Visit: code.pragyan.org

Date: 4th March 2020

The contest is open for one week, where players have to write codes that fight against other player’s codes. Your rating changes based on your wins. At the end of the game period, the one who is at the top of the leaderboard wins.

  • It is an individual event.

  • Doubts regarding anything should be asked directly to the event coordinators. Posting the same in public forums will not be entertained.

  • Any act of bad strategy that gives an unfair advantage will lead to disqualification.

  • The solutions should not be made public/open-sourced during the contest.

  • Decision of the organisers will be final and binding in any case of disputes.

Judging criteria:

The player with the highest rating wins.

You are playing a game where you have an army of soldiers and villagers, where villagers can build factories which in turn produce more soldier and villager units, and soldiers can attack opponent factories and units. But the trick here is, you are not playing the game, but you have to write an AI code to play the game.


1) Do I need to know C++ to participate?
Yes, some basic knowledge of C++ is definitely required. If you have an understanding of structs, arrays, pointers, and perhaps the STL library, you should be good to go.

2) Do I need to set up the environment on my local machine to code?
Not at all. You can compile and run your code directly in the integrated editor.

3) Is the event completely online?
Yes! Code Character is played completely on the web.
