Special moves[edit]

  • Sliding Attack: Hold Neutral lstick in any direction to make Shadow run. While running, you can press B button at the same time to perform the Sliding Attack and slide through enemies that are on the ground.
  • Mid-Air Attacks: While Jumping with A button, you can press X button while in Mid-air to perform an attack. If you have a gun, you will perform a Mid-air shooting attack. If you don't have one, you will perform a Mid-air Kick attack.
  • Homing attack: The most useful move in the game, but relatively easy to perform. When near a target, jump with A button once, then press A button again to perform a homing attack on your foe. If there are multiple foes you can do this attack repeatedly to defeat them all at once!
  • Lift up heavy objects: To lift up a heavy object, for example a bus blocking the way on Westopolis, just face it and press B button twice to throw it.
