Tips for Getting High Scores

R-COIL is a hard game, but it’s not as impossible nor random as it might seem at first. Here are a few tips to help you enter the Hall of Champions.

Learn to Fly - Spend some time getting a feel for moving around efficiently. Each shot will push you backwards, but don’t let that trick you into flying around backwards as fast as you can! Hold the fire button a bit every so often to thrust and counter the recoil effects. Move fast enough to be a moving target, but not fast enough to get out of control. Stay calm. Practice.

Choose Your Weapons - Not all power-ups are created equal. Learn what they do and which ones you like the best. If one that you want is getting away, shooting it once or twice will slow it down and buy you time to collect it. If one that you don’t like drops, shooting it three times will destroy it and spawn a replacement. Use this to get what you want.
