The Project

Select a nontrivial game or puzzle.

Design and implement an evolutionary algorithm to evolve a strategy/solution for the chosen game/puzzle.

The following paper contains some examples of hard puzzles. However, you are not to choose one of these.

There are various puzzle sites on the net you can search, such as addictinggames, freeonlinegames.
You might also find an interesting game at or deep in your old closet...

The project must be approved by me.
