The Dodge Dash
I came up with a game mechanic I call the dodge dash a few years ago when I was trying to figure out how to make Goshawk fly though the tree tops without always colliding with a tree or tree branch, just like a real Goshawk. If the player used the analog stick or directional buttons to turn away from a tree branch, he might be headed straight for another tree as soon as he turns. A dodge dash allows a player to move sideways, or even beneath or above an obstacle in mid-run, or in the case of flying characters such as Goshawk, in mid flight. In case you're unable to stream the videos, I created some GIF images of the dodge dash as well. I'll let the pictures and videos do the rest of the talking.
