|Observation Shape||(210, 160, 3)|
A mixed-sum game of planning and control.
The main goal is to kick a pest off the floor. This requires 2 steps:
Note that since this process has two steps there are opportunities for the two agents to either collaborate by helping each other knock pests over and collect them (potentially allowing both to collect reward more quickly), or for agents to steal the other’s work.
If you run into an active pest or a fireball, you lose a life. If you lose all your lives, you are done, and the other player keeps playing. You can gain a new life after earning 20000 points.
There are other ways of earning points, by collecting bonus coins or wafers, earning 800 points each.
Environment parameters are common to all Atari environments and are described in the base Atari documentation .
