People interested in JROBOTS may be also interested in GUN-TACTYX, my QUAKE3-style CROBOTS-like game.
Now I'm developing the next release of the game: GUN-TACTYX-2! If you want to follow the development or partecipate with suggestions or ideas, visit the APOCALYX BLOG: the blog of the 3D engine on which GUN-TACTYX is based, with daily updates.

Again a lot of new jrobots were uploaded to the Cadets' Arena during the March challenge, but they were not effective or uploaded too late, so they didn't reach the requested number of matches to survive: DreamHunter, DreamCatcher, Test, Mega, removed with Battlemage, a long aged cadet that failed to survive.
The new jrobots uploaded during the March challenge were Tinker and RatBot. The best of the two was Tinker: it survived among the veterans with a nice 9-7-9.
Another jrobot uploaded at March now deserve a promotion: Grappelli. The April challenge will show if it has become better than Tinker.
The survivors among the veterans are: Tango, Spike, StrangeMatter, IonStorm, Starkle, Headhunter, HellFire, TTL, Tinker, DOOM, Mouth, Bohan, GulleFjun.
The demoted veterans are: Earthworm, KillerBees, KillJoy, Stately, RoboOlm, FlameBall, RatBot, Vampire.
We already talked about the removed cadets. The survivors are: Singularity, RoadRunner, SingleMinded, CounterStrike, Shrike, Bizarro, DeadDuck, Yoda, DirtyCoward, Snutteplutt, Ladybug, DeathIncarnate, Ciaky, Touche, AronsRobot01, Ender, Phalanx, Stinger, Shark, Genuine, GenuineA, Dragon.
Finally, a promotion was deserved by: Grappelli, Janeway, Teddybear, Hal9000, Errata, 845bytes, Bosozoku, Jimbo, MarukoV4, AronsRobot02, Berserk, DarkSoldier.
Now you can upload your jrobots to win the April 2008 JROBOTS Challenge (April 5th-26th 2008) aka Tinker vs Grappelli!
