What is Code Rally?
Code Rally is a free, open source racing game with a twist - instead of racing around a track using a controller you write a Java EE 7 web application to race for you! There are currently 9 different tracks to race on from the very simple figure 8 track to the complicated pond track - each track has its own challenges which will need you to improve your Java code to be able to compete.
You can play single-player on your own computer, multiplayer on your own or your friends' computers or race against people from around the world on the Code Rally cloud server - the choice is yours.
Whether you're an experienced software engineer or someone starting to learning programming Code Rally is a fun, exciting challenge. What are you waiting for - star
