Results from the research on Design Problem Solving which used Genetic Algorithms (GAs) showed many promising aspects, as well as limitations, of the approach within a design domain [1][2]. This paper attempts to apply these concepts for a real-time computer game engine and appraise the features that appeared in design. Gameplay can be defined as a problem solving process, and will contribute to this research. A new model, known as the Evolutionary Intelligent Character (EIC) model, was created to examine the use of GAs to control game characters or to solve a problem in a real-time computer game [3]. The features, both benefits and limitations, which emerged in the design process, will be reviewed in a dynamic game environment.
