Traboulet (also known as Kuba and Akiba) is a pushing game, with a clever mechanical construction which enforces the movement rules.   It looks superficially like Abalone, except on a square grid, but it is a completely independantly invented game.  The rules are here.

Robots:  The robots are very basic, but seem to scale pretty well.  Dumbot is not quite a pushover, bestbot appears to be pretty strong.

The back story:
Traboulet came to my attention as an game with a similar mechanic to Abalone.   It has it's own sad back story of court cases establishing that it is NOT a derivative of abalone.
