Background Information

What's special about it?
It's an attempt to put Wave Surfing into a NanoBot
Great, I want to try it. Where can I download it?
How competitive is it?
It's not as competitive as I had hoped: about 35th in the NanoRumble.


How does it move?
An extremely simplified version of Wave Surfing. It only surfs the latest wave (when the enemy fires a bullet, the old wave is overwritten), so it is not very effective on a long range, but in short range it can surf simple targeting systems such as Head-On Targeting and Linear Targeting quite well.
How does it fire?
It uses a simplified version of NeophytePRAL's gun.
What does it save between rounds and matches?
Between rounds, it saves information about the enemy's movement and targeting behaviour.

Additional Information

Where did you get the name?
From its colours.
Can I use your code?
Yes, it's Open Source, the code is in the .jar file.
What's next for your robot?
Reducing code size to add energy management and/or better distancing.
Does it have any White Whales?
I don't know yet.
What other robot(s) is it based on?
It uses a simplified version of NeophytePRAL's gun.
