Select controller:
PSX, N64, PC
  • Walking: Hold Circle button and press Neutral dpad to walk slowly instead of running.
  • Quick Turn: Hold Neutral dpad and press Circle button to quickly turn to face in that direction.
  • Side Roll: Hold either R1 button or L1 button and press Cross button to quickly roll to one side. This can be used to dodge attacks.
  • Run in circles: Hold either Left dpad+R1 button or Right dpad+L1 button simultaneously to run in circles around enemies. This really confuses some bosses.
  • Roller Dash: If the Jet Skates are equipped, hold Circle button to Roller Dash. This lets you travel faster. Use Neutral dpad to steer.
