    General fighting hints for Rise of the Robots:
    The programmers thought that if block was 100% effective, the computer 
    could (with its superior reflexes) block every single attack you did, 
    and therefore defaet you easily.  Thus, block is 100% effective on the 
    HARD level.  However, the computer _doesn't_ block every attack, so with 
    it at that setting, the advantage is on the human's side.  On BEGINNER 
    level, attacks that are blocked still cause damage, so the robot can keep 
    pounding you.
    Summary:  HARD is easiest and BEGINNER is hardest.
    Set it to HARD level and practice blocking.  We've found a simple strategy 
    that works pretty well is to:
    Crouch, block, & hold attack (to build power).  When the robot bounces off 
    of you, do a foot sweep.
    Use the keyboard - keypads and joysticks are harder to do the moves with.
    Using the keyboard, hit the keys rapidly in succession: tap-tap-tap.
    Don't hold down too long on any one key, or it will spoil the special
