On the run

Posted by Ian Jones on July 29, 2007

The Man Who Brought Me Up always told me that, if I ever came under fire, I should run in a zig zag pattern if the assailant was directly behind or in front of me.

It always worked versus cricket balls, snowballs, meatballs, spitballs, rocks, etc, and today it might well have saved my life.

I miss him.

Of course, this tactic is impractical in most turn-based games, where the assailant is only able to target you at either the start or end of your trajectory. You’re much better off finding some cover.
