I see that diagonal movement is not allowed when moving, but the area diagram on the Move card display shows options that only could be chosen if you moved diagonally.
This is a little confusing even when using the pictured examples (page 8).
I see knockback may force a player back diagonally due to a thrown object, but it doesn't provide a method of arriving at the spot during a move.
On the MOVE card you're not moving diagonally. You're moving one step left/right and one step forwards (or vice versa). This is shown on page 8.
Another way to think of the MOVE card:
You can move two squares using MOVE, but can only move Orthoganally, can't move backwards, and at most one of those moves can be sideways.
I'm not sure that's simpler for you, but it results on the diagram. Basically you move to one of the green squares while tracing a path of orthogonally-connected squares.
