Design Notes

Two buttons: sword and jump. Jump works as expected. The sword button goes through a couple phases: first it acts as a parry, and if you only tap the button that's all it does. If you hold it down, you begin charging a dash attack which fires off when released.

You have a stance meter. If you get hit, it goes down. If your hitbox touches an enemy hitbox, you both lose stance. Parry an enemy's attack to lower their stance, if you parry enough you'll stagger them and gain an opening for the dash attack.
