Efficiency and Effectiveness of Game AI

Bob van der Putten, Arno Kamphuis

In this paper we try to determine the effectiveness of different AI techniques used in simple games. This effectiveness is measured by comparing game-play experience to implementation effort. Game-play experience is measured by letting a test panel play with the different kinds of AI techniques after which a questionnaire is filled in and the implementation effort is simply logged. The results showed that the increasing numbers of AI features is valued, but only until a certain level.
