Gruweltje ===

Author ====





Gruweltje is the little brother of Gruwel, it was not planned, but sometimes those things happen. Have you seen the movie 'Twins'? Gruwel is twice as big, but both are mean little bullys. Compared to its bigger brother the wall-avoidance is replaced by simple wall-bouncing, leaving its movement a bare double oscillator. Further the mini-style meleeradar is replaced by a nano-style meleeradar (as explained by Kawigi on the MeleeStrategy/UnderstandingCoriantumr page), it is less picky about its opponents and it does not bounce when hitting another bot. The gun is my 'standard' iterative CT-gun with one minor line removed for codesize reasons.

Comment: Due to the increase of 'real' meleebots, Gruweltje can not hold its position anymore.

Comment: Generating some ripples in the micro-melee pond.

Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?

How competitive is it?

In one-on-one anonymously just above 1600, in micro-melee a top-8 bot.

How does it move?

Perpendicular oscillator movement with simple wall-bouncing. Due to the meleeradar is not purely perpendicular so it is a bit unpredictable.

How does it fire?

Iterative circular gun with bulletpower adaption against 'wallshots'.

How does it dodge bullets?


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

No difference and this is on purpose. With a continuus radarlock the one-on-one performance is approx 15 point lower.

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

Closest with a small preference for current target.

What does it save between rounds and matches?


Where did you get the name?

It is the little brother of Gruwel.

Can I use your code?

It's in the jar, under the RWPCL.

What's next for your robot?

Probably nothing.

Does it have any WhiteWhales?


What other robot(s) is it based on?

Like its bigger brother it is a result of a GrubbmGroup party.
