I need to add a document somewhere explaining the controls, ran out of time to get that in the game but, you have access to an air dodge. It's V or LShift on keyboard, or triggers on controller. It's omnidirectional and you can use it to snap to platforms, and is invincible. Nue wasn't finished tho ;~;
Should also mention here that the control scheme on keyboard was wasd + mouse/space lshift, with arrow keys and zxcv as an alternate.
