How to Bomberman with gym


We are having a competition with a Bomberman-like (or Eric and the Floaters -like) maze game and the suggested solution is with traditional algorithms.

First thought when I saw this: Solve / win it with gym and reinforcement learning!

I can run the game (server) and have programming access to directly feed actions. (Java)

Now I´m looking for input.

  • Is gym the right approach? Other suggestions?
  • Do I need Universe (if I can directly feed actions)?
  • I got gym installed. What game would most closely resemble Eric… with the least adaptions necessary?

Just warming up on this. Please forgive if I left out important info in this first post / try.
