Since I won’t have the time to contribute with code…

Has anyone considered coding a robot to NOT go after the packages?

What about pushing all of the other robots into the water - thus securing
the number one place as the only surviving robot?

The score a robot receives is the total weight of the packages it
has delivered, whether it survives the game or not. Being the only
surviving robot does not guarantee the highest score.
