Bomberland engine + starter kits


Bomberland is a multi-agent AI competition inspired by the classic console game Bomberman.

Teams build intelligent agents using strategies from tree search to deep reinforcement learning. The goal is to compete in a 2D grid world collecting power-ups and placing explosives to take your opponent down.

This repo contains starter kits for working with the game engine + the engine source!

Basic usage

See: Documentation

  1. Clone or download this repo (including both base-compose.yml and docker-compose.yml files).
  2. To connect agents and run a game instance, run from the root directory:
docker-compose up --abort-on-container-exit --force-recreate
  1. While the engine is running, access the client by going to http://localhost:3000/ in your browser (may be different depending on your settings).
  2. From the client, you can connect as a spectator or agent (to play as a human player)
