SAL's Tiny Hill


The Tiny Hill is located on the SAL Server. On June 11, 2004 it opened its gate for business. The specification for the hill are:
Hill key:        tiny
Core size:       800
Max processes:   800
Max cycles:      8000
Max length:      20
instruction set: extended ICWS '94 Draft
P-space size:    50
A tiny hill was first suggested 1996 in a posting at rec.games.corewar by Joshua / HarleyQ2. The first tiny hill opened for business on 14 November, 1996 at the Pizza's Server. After Pizza's closure, tiny hills opened at Sourceforge (also closed in the meantime) and SAL.

Critics of the tiny hill would have you believe it dominated by one-shots, with no other strategy standing a chance! While one-shots place well for relatively little effort - they are at a disadvantage. Their score varies widely, depending on their opponent's steps, boot distance, etc. As authors of new entries take advantage of this, the one-shot's days on the hill are limited.

The tiny hill is quite frequently played, but as the hill is in the meantime well developed it is not very easy for beginners to enter the hill.



Level of Hill: HARD
