Eugene Jarvis Explains the “General Player Motion Strategy” of Robotron
The two keys to player movement is move in a circular movement about the center of the screen. This is important since by changing the players velocity and position constantly, both direct and player relative enemy shots can be avoided. Do not move directly toward or away from an enemy as then all direct and relative shots will be headed in your direction. Corners should be avoided unless it is a last resort. The second key is to move closer to the enemies, not further away, as the enemy shot speed is proportion to the players distance from the enemy. Moving far from enemies will create the nasty “fast ball” shots which are tough to handle.
