How does the bread-slicing mechanic work?
Once a bread platform is sliced, it regenerates after a short period of time. During this time, the player cannot slice another bread platform. The player also has to focus on their own side not falling down, so they cannot put all their attention to slicing bread, thus making the mechanic not too overpowered.
How does the chili pepper bomb work?
The chili pepper can be released and launches the opponent into the air upon contact. Once released, there is a cooldown period before another pepper can be released.
