robots - a game of logic

This is the original source code to Allan R. Black's "robots" game, as posted to the Usenet newsgroup net.sources.games on May 28, 1985 by Stephen J. Muir.

It has been modified to build and run on Linux and OS X.

As Muir wrote at the time, in net.games:

I have posted the game of "robots" to "net.sources.games" with the consent of the author (Allan R. Black at Strathclyde University, UK).

The installation is self explanatory.

WARNING: it is highly addictive.
