When you played the game back in the 80's, did you find that there was a strategy you could use to keep leveling up? Meaning the rocks just kept coming faster and faster?

I played Asteroids in the early 2000s on an old desktop PC at my grandparents' house. It came preinstalled on that version of Windows, for some reason.
My strategy basically consisted of moving as minimally as possible around the center of the screen. The ship just couldn't shoot fast enough and I'd have to move, ultimately, to the edges of the screen which would lead to an impact. This was not ideal. I'd be interested in how it should be done.

This isn't a game I'm particularly familiar with, however, I've played games very similar. I think there is a strategy to every game, especially the old classics which usually only had a handful of mechanics so they had to rely on one way or another to allow the player to progress, yet at the same time make the game progressively more difficult.
I was too young in the 80s to play this game but I remember playing versions of it. I never really had a strategy while playing. I just kept on shooting stuff and hoping I beat the level.

I was a kid in the 80s and I do indeed remember this one. Anyway, I'm sure there was some strategy - you know, just like on those Super Mario Galaxy II levels where you have to burn up boxes etc.. Anyone played those?
