Some reason this formula doesn't guide "angle" to "(float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y)))"
Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

 1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10 `if(angle > (float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y))) &&             angle <= -((float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y)))))            angle -= handleing;                  else if(angle < (float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y))) &&                angle > -((float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y)))))               angle += handleing;                  x -= Math.sin(Math.toRadians(angle)) * speed;         y += Math.cos(Math.toRadians(angle)) * speed;`

it's atan2(y, x) not atan2(x, y)

besides the x/y swap,  your code hurts my eyes. Why don't you just write

 1  2  3  4  5  6  7 `      float a = (float) Math.toDegrees(Math.atan2(x - target.x, -(y - target.y)));      if (angle > a && angle <= -a)         angle -= handleing;      else if (angle < a && angle > -a)         angle += handleing;      x -= Math.sin(Math.toRadians(angle)) * speed;      y += Math.cos(Math.toRadians(angle)) * speed;`
