Like Star Wars on the ZX Spectrum, this is based on an arcade game called Star Wars, but it's actually an entirely different arcade game based around blowing up an entirely different Death Star. Technically this should be called Return of the Jedi Arcade really.

So I guess the trick is to keep suddenly slowing down so they overshoot me, then shoot them up the ass with a guided proton torpedo.
In the other Star Wars arcade game, the TIEs at least had the decency to line up on screen to be shot.
My targeting computer is actually locking on to a couple right now, so I could try firing some protons off. But they recharge slowly so I have to be careful not to waste them.
