Codingame

CodinGame is a platform to learn and compete. Proposes a variety of multiplayer games and contests as well as optimisation challenges and solo puzzles. You can contribute your own too. Choose your language, enjoy the graphics.

CodeCombat

Choose your hero and code your way through the ogre patrols, lava pits, and laser beams of Kithgard Dungeon. Level up, earn gems, and loot magic items to unlock new programming powers. Join millions of players and go from a total beginner to writing advanced multiplayer AI in Python, JavaScript, CoffeeScript, or Lua in this open-source programming game.

Vindinium

In Vindinium, players write scripts in the programming language of their choice (optionally using one of the many starter packs) to control a 16-bit hero through HTTP requests, guiding him to collect gold, do battle with other players, and even visit the tavern.

Python

Robocode

Robocode is a programming game, where the goal is to develop a robot battle tank to battle against other tanks. The robot battles are running in real-time and on-screen.

Programming languages: Java, Python, Node

Java

JavaScript

Screeps

Screeps is about scripting your creeps. No point’n’clicking any longer! You write real JavaScript* which controls your units autonomously. Any time, everywhere, even while you are offline.

(* Or any other language using compilers.)

Javascript Fight Club

"The Red King and the Blue King are at war! Your Javascript skills are needed to determine the victor: Can you code an effective AI for honor and glory?"

Elevator Saga

Write Javascript directly in the browser to program an elevator, such that it reaches its efficiency goals. Start with simple "getting started" scripts, and ramp up to much more complex situations with many floors and multiple elevators.

Untrusted

The game presents you with a roguelike-like playing environment and a console window with the JavaScript code generating each level. As loaded, each level is unbeatable, and most of the JavaScript is blocked from editing. The challenge is to open a path to the next level using only the limited tools left open to you.

C#
