It's the classic "mind games" concept that the Japanese call "yomi". Lets say you are righ next to your opponent. They need either an overhead or straight shot move to get you. You might have a good move to counter either, but they know you have that move, so they might do a move to counter that move instead of the more obvious move. The best fighting game players are simply better at outguessing what their opponent will do in a given situation. That's the kind of spirit that this game captures.
