Rover Wars, there can be only one. With each opponent you absorb you add to your total mass. However you can just as easily be absorbed by someone larger. The last blob left is the winner.
Rover Warsis a competitive game for 3 players. At the main menu you can choose to let the computer control any of the opponents. Then just into the game. Absorb blobs smaller than you, avoid balls larger than you. The last of the 3 player blobs left is the winner. Rounds tend to be short, not lasting more than a minute. A good enhancement would be some sort of score table between games to keep track of who’s won more games and declare a winner after a number of wins.
Rover Wars was basically the game I used to teach myself allegro. I wanted to take the game Osmos and make it competitive. It wasn't real well received, so chances are I won't expand it past this point.
Protip: pressing f10 during play has a funny effect.
