NAME

Games::Worms::Random2 -- class for consistent random worms

SYNOPSIS

  perl -MGames::Worms -e worms -- -tTk Games::Worms::Random2

DESCRIPTION

Worms in the class Games::Worms::Random2 are random, but consistent -- that is, a worm in this class, upon meeting a new context, will choose at random which way to go, and then will associate that context with that move; and for the rest of its life, given that context, it will move in that direction.

Games::Worms::Random2 is implemented by simply inheriting from Games::Worms::Random, but setting memoization to true.

This simple change leads to worms that often behave rather like Beeler worms, but sometimes behave astonishingly differently.
