ViZDoom is an AI research platform based on the classical First Person Shooter game Doom. The most popular game mode is probably the so-called Death Match, where several players join in a maze and fight against each other. After a fixed time, the match ends and all the players are ranked by the FRAG scores defined as kills minus suicides. During the game, each player can access various observations, including the first-person view screen pixels, the corresponding depth-map and segmentation-map (pixel-wise object labels), the bird-view maze map, etc. The valid actions include almost all the keyboard-stroke and mouse-control a human player can take, accounting for moving, turning, jumping, shooting, changing weapon, etc. ViZDoom can run a game either synchronously or asynchronously, indicating whether the game core waits until all players’ actions are collected or runs in a constant frame rate without waiting.

The StarCraft II Learning Environment (S2LE) is a reinforcement learning environment based on the game StarCraft II. The environment consists of three sub-components: a Linux StarCraft II binary, the StarCraft II API and PySC2. The StarCraft II API allows programmatic control of StarCraft II. It can be used to start a game, get observations, take actions, and review replays. PyC2 is a Python environment that wraps the StarCraft II API to ease the interaction between Python reinforcement learning agents and StarCraft II. It defines an action and observation specification, and includes a random agent and a handful of rule-based agents as examples. It also includes some mini-games as challenges and visualization tools to understand what the agent can see and do.

Mario AI was a benchmark environment for reinforcement learning. The gameplay in Mario AI, as in the original Nintendo’s version, consists in moving the controlled character, namely Mario, through two-dimensional levels, which are viewed sideways. Mario can walk and run to the right and left, jump, and (depending on which state he is in) shoot fireballs. Gravity acts on Mario, making it necessary to jump over cliffs to get past them. Mario can be in one of three states: Small, Big (can kill enemies by jumping onto them), and Fire (can shoot fireballs).

LANI is a 3D navigation environment and corpus, where an agent navigates between landmarks. Lani contains 27,965 crowd-sourced instructions for navigation in an open environment. Each datapoint includes an instruction, a human-annotated ground-truth demonstration trajectory, and an environment with various landmarks and lakes. The dataset train/dev/test split is 19,758/4,135/4,072. Each environment specification defines placement of 6–13 landmarks within a square grass field of size 50m×50m.
