Dead or Alive 4
Introduction goes here.
P - Punch
K - Kick
G - Free/Guard (will be written as "G" so as not to be confused with "forward". Commonly notated on other forums as F. Old-school DoA2 players will also know this as S.)
.- up (u) | up+back (ub) - 7 8 9 - up+forward (uf) back (b) - 4 6 - forward (f) down+back (db) - 1 2 3 - down+foward (df) | `- down (d)
Note: These numbers can be easily referenced by looking at your keyboard "numpad". Think of it as a joystick/controller that is facing to the right. "5" is used to signify "neutral".
The default lifebar (at three ticks) equates to 240 health points. Each tick up or down adds or subtracts 30 points of health.

- Small life: 210 points
- Normal life: 240 points
