Valentin’s grabs video from Super Hexagon‘s screen and then uses OpenCV to determine the location of the walls and the player’s ship on a frame-by-frame basis. Then it analyzes the frame to see if there’s enough space to pass through, and finally simulates button presses to actually move the ship. Here’s the bot owning the game on the hardest difficulty:
