The controls are terrible, what are you smoking? Your ability to move changes depending on if you are locked on opponent. You have to manually lock on an opponent but it automatically unlocks you when you move back which stops you from moving back further since the rules for moving change. Alot of potential but you obviously work for the vendor or have been incentivized to write this.
