I can't think of any concise way of saying this. When you say A happens progressively as you do X, it doesn't mean that the opposite of A happens when you do the opposite of X. Is there a way to say this properly?

For example:

The health bar of the enemy progressively shrink as you shoot the enemy, and progressively replenishes itself when he gets healed my a teammate.


Definition of "direct correlation":

direct correlation = a correlation in which large values of one variable are associated with large values of the other and small with small; the correlation coefficient is between 0 and +1

From Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Researchers have found a direct correlation between smoking and lung cancer.

In your example:

The health bar of the enemy is directly correlated with taking hits (shrinking) and with healing (replenishing).
