Program a robot for arena battles?

I remember playing a PC game where you write scripts for your robots behavior and then put it in an arena with other robots, to see who wins. I can't remember the name of the game, but it was pretty cool.

You could program the robot how and when to move and turn, could react to an enemy or a wall and could use programming techniques like loops and IF statements. And I believe there were weapons.

Is there anything like this on IOS?

Lately I've been really interested in programming (currently in a Java programming class) and this.....sounds awesome.

If there isn't a game like this, maybe I'll make one in a few years, once I learn a bit more programming.
