How does it move?

It uses PerpendicularMovement, circling around the opponent (part of the Saturn-series)

How does it fire?

With a combination of linear and random aim. Switches the relative weights between the two every time it dies.

How does it dodge bullets?

Two modes: dodge and non-dodge.

In dodge-mode reverses its move every time the opponent fires.

Changes modes every time it gets hit.

How does the melee strategy differ from one-on-one strategy?

How does it select a target to attack/avoid in melee ?

What does it save between rounds and matches?

Where did you get the name?

Based on Pandora. Also it is a small thing full of nasty stuff :-)

Can I use your code?

Sure, just try to understand it, observe the usual courtesies and don't make an outright copy. I am always pleased when my ideas have helped someone make an even better bot.

What's next for your robot?

See what I can take out so that I can improve bullet dodging, power management, selection of fire tuning parameter.

What other robot(s) is it based on?

Pandora. Also has some code from Lemon? (Thanks Jan).
