Combo #1 ATTACK (Sword): Use the left thumbstick to target the enemy; then press the X 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 Right Trigger to block. For as long as you hold the Right Trigger, 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 left thumbstick toward your enemy; then press the A button to vault over him. As you start your descent, press the X 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 left thumbstick toward the wall and press A + X 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 Right Trigger to block, wait until your enemy strikes...and then press the X 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 Right Trigger 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 Left Trigger 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 X + X 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 Right Trigger, and then press the Left Trigger for the Power of Haste. Use the left thumbstick to target enemies; then X + X to finish each one off in turn.
