Perhaps then backwards(the arrow key in the opposite direction of what you're facing) and attack(if timed right, or perhaps you could use some other mechanic to differentiate between that and moving, probably the former though,) could be an overhead vertical chop then? And, while midair, down and attack could be a downward slam or stab?
I don't have sprites for everything, so I won't make too many moves either. Ghosting may or may not occur upon pressing up and down at the same time, but it entirely depends on the keyboard. Pressing up and down simultaneously is a bit awkward,however, since they both use the same finger.EDIT: Just a quick question. How many of you have a gamepad, joystick or similar game controller available for PC?
Would too much ghosting occur if you pressed up and down at the same time then attack? If that doesn't become a problem, I think that could be a spin attack or something.
