Hey guys! I know some guys gave this info in other threads, but this seems to be bugging a lot of people so I wanted to have a new thread with this title!
You don't need to push those tiny buttons to dodge left and right...I had the same problem in the beginning!!
...by just pushing your finger on the left or right third of the phone, you can dodge to the side! Do not swipe or move finger, just tap the screen once, otherwise it is registered as a slash! Its quite tricky but once you get the hang of it its fairly easy!
The same goes for blocking, as far as I know (just tap and hold in the middle)
... although I like pausing my finger on the little shield symbol in the middle it works pretty well for me. Hope this helps!
And remember: if you can't dodge a spanner...
