Combo #1 ATTACK (Sword): Use the Control Stick to target the enemy; then press the B button to strike with your sword. Your sword can hurt Sand Creatures, but to finish them off, you need to use the Dagger.
Combo #2 RETRIEVE SAND (Dagger): When you have knocked down a Sand Creature with repeated sword strikes, press the Y button to strike with the Dagger and retrieve its Sands of Time. This destroys the enemy for good and also refills one Sand Tank.
Combo #3 BLOCK: Press and hold the R Button to block. For as long as you hold the R Button, your sword will deflect all enemy attacks from all directions. Later in the game, you may encounter enemies powerful enough to break your block.
Combo #4 VAULTING ATTACK: Push the Control Stick toward your enemy; then press the A button to vault over him. As you start your descent, press the B button to strike the enemy from behind. Later in the game, you may encounter enemies that can block your vaulting attack.
Combo #5 VAULTING ATTACK + RETRIEVE: Follow up a successful vaulting attack by pressing the Y button (Dagger) to do a quick retrieve and destroy the enemy.
Combo #6 WALL REBOUND ATTACKS: When fighting near a wall, you can use the walls for rebound attacks. Point the Control Stick toward the wall and press A + B to launch a rebound attack straight at the enemy, or A + A to rebound and jump over the enemy's head.
Combo #7 COUNTER-ATTACK: Press and hold the R Button to block, wait until your enemy strikes...and then press the B button to launch a devastating counter-attack. This takes a bit of practice, but if properly executed, you can floor enemies with a single blow. Later in the game, you may encounter enemies that can counter your counter-attacks.
Combo #8 COUNTER-RETRIEVE: Press and hold the R Button to block...then, at the moment your foe strikes, press the Y button to do a quick retrieve and destroy the enemy.
Combo #9 POWER OF DELAY (Slow Motion): Needs one full Power Tank. Tap the L Button briefly to go into slow motion for 10 seconds. This gives you an advantage over your enemies
Combo #10 POWER OF RESTRAINT (FREEZE) + ATTACK: Needs one full Power Tank. Press the Y button to strike an enemy with the Dagger. This will freeze him in time. Then, while he is at your mercy, press B + B to set up and slice your foe in half, destroying him utterly without needing to do a retrieve.
Combo #11 POWER OF HASTE (FAST-FORWARD): When you have grown a full complement of Power Tanks, this gives you the ability to go into hyper-speed, stopping all your enemies. Haste consumes all your Power Tanks...but in the right situation, it is worth it! Press and hold the R Button, and then press the L Button for the Power of Haste. Use the Control Stick to target enemies; then B + B to finish each one off in turn.
