Code viewer for Mind: Dungeon Floodfill Mind

See raw JS.

//Mind for dungeon world that uses floodfill to decide a path each turn
//and take 1 step along it.
//Mind has visibility of entire grid through getGrid function, probably not realistic.
//Mind avoids pathing through the enemy or walls.
//Mind paths pretty directly to the goal on most maps.
//Main limitation is the mind getting confused if the path is longer that 2*gridsize,
//this was deliberate as the alternative is skirting javascript's recursion limit 
//and taking longer than a second per move.
//Another limitation is that it'll just sit there if the enemy can trap
//the agent in a room with only one exit, but it's kinda an edge case, 
// i've enabled the random move in case that helps.
//gets about 6 bad steps on an average run before it makes it to the goal.
