DASHING and ROLLING
Press the DASH button while holding a direction to dash.
Dashing can be a great way to recover without using your jumps.
Attempting to dash on the ground will cause the character to roll.
Players can pick up the ball while rolling or dashing, and are briefly invincible.
Tap down while in the air to fastfall.
Fastfalling is an incredibly important technique, essential both
for scoring and for recovering the ball.
Note that you can cancel your fastfall by dashing or jumping.
By attacking the ball you can influence the direction it travels. This is an important technique for aiming balls around opponents or even at them!
Hit the ball hard enough, or charge up a powerful throw, and it will become a hazardous projectile.
If a character hits the ground while tumbling, he or she
will be knocked down for about a second.
Tap DOWN just before hitting the ground or the water to get up more quickly.
DIRECTIONAL INFLUENCE (DI)
You can influence the direction of your character even after getting hit.
Note that the longer you're stuck in a combo, the more effective your DI becomes.
Try to lean out of combos or aim toward safe ground!
