And so far, it seems to me that the main strategy to try to attack and win is to place Erase instructions close to the other player active block, and then execute those instructions. But what usually ends up happening is that by placing Erase instructions, both active blocks, mine and his, become one, and my opponent is then able to manipulate the joined active block to escape or jump freely around the joined block.
What does this paragraph mean:
The player can destroy an instruction if it is adjacent orthogonally to any ERASE instruction in their active block
Does it mean, that There are two ERASE instructions, one: on which my instruction marker is on right now. and another ERASE instruction is in my own active block. I can only erase instructions from my active block. And thus, I can only try to isolate my opponent my simultaneously allowing both active blocks to be merged (for a moment)
or does it mean: that there are two ERASE instructions, one: on which my instruction marker is on right now. and another ERASE instruction is in any
active block (Eg. my opponents). I can destroy an instruction of this active block without our blocks being joined.
