Re: [pygame] Pathfinding

1) People can, and do, get PhDs in pathfinding algorithms. A* (pronounced a-star) is the most commonly used algorithm in games though.

2) Alter the chain length score computation to reduce exploitation.

1) How is pathfinding done?
2) How do you prevent a moving sprite from being caught in a v- shaped rut made of obstacles? Like this:
A          ->  # |      B

Where A and B are the points the sprite needs to travel,
# is the sprite,
-> is the direction the sprite is moving, and
_ and | are obstacles?
