Typical Strategies Used In Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved?

#1 Posted by BurningStarIV (25 posts) -

I am not all that great at the game myself.. In fact i think my highest score is about 300,000. I guess i was just wondering what kinds of strategies you guys feel lead you to success when playing the game. I typically try to keep moving around the basic parameter around the map, which i feel is helpful, but the again what do i know since i fail to get past 100,000 points most times i play...

I normally find myself going in a circle to get everything behind while still moving away. The only time this gets awkward is when those little tiny blue things appear and start to fill up the screen.

i'm not very good at the game either, but i just wait in the middle and don't move until it starts getting really intense. i don't have many strategies to the game, which probably is why i dont have a very high score.

Apparently, you should listen to Radiohead.

I suck at it, so I shouldn't be giving tips, but I guess you circle-strafe...a lot.

does strafing exist in a 2d game?

That's a perfect example of the technique I proposed. Seems to work pretty well for me.

Yeah, I just always shoot what's in front of me, move in circles etc.

I stand 10 inches away from the screen concentrating.
