Jak Controls

Jak has some crazy and weird attacks which you should try all so you know which move you use when.
Daxter has no moves, he only sits on Jak's shoulder and has all the funny comments on his account. And he gets thrown around like a furry jojo when Jak attacks.

JUMPS

Normal jump
Just press button once and this is the normal jump.

Doublejump
You perform the double jump by pressing button once and while you are in midair you press button again.
Of course Jak jumps higher with the double jump and so you can reach for higher cliffs and edges.
But watch out, if you press button too late the second time Jak won't accept this and doesn't jump again and higher. Most of the times the double jump only works while you are walking or running and not out of the stand.

Higher Jump
Kneel down by pressing button and then press button. If Jak spreads his legs you have done everything right.

Roll Jump
This jump is important to jump long distances. Once you need this jump you know what I mean.
To do a rolljump you first have to roll while running by pressing R1 and then while you are rolling around press button.
You have to press the button while the previous action is still happening. This means press button to roll while you are still running and press button while Jak is still performing his roll.
If you jump into a lurker with a rolljump you kill him most of the times.

Doublejump with slideglide
I don't know how else I should call this, but it doesn't matter, I will use this name now in the FAQ and because it sounds so stupid you will remember it even better. The human brain often works in mysterious ways.
You use this move to jump wide distances while the roll jump will shoot you over your aim, maybe even catapulting you into an abyss. Or if you have to get higher while making it across a long distance jump.
So here is the explanation:
At first you perform a doublejump by pressing button twice, just like I explained above and then, once you think you reached the peak of your jump press button to start a Spinattack and slide glide while doing that.
The same thing can be done after a single jump but then it is quite useless in my humble opinion.

ATTACKS
up

Fistpunch
The fistpunch is one of Jaks default attacks.
To perform the fist punch just press button. Jak first throws his fist in front of him and then himselft after it.
You can fistpunch while walking and while standing still.

Spinattack
Press button to start a spinattack. This is Jaks second default attack. Also a nice attack, and you can move forwards while doing this attack or you can stand still. And the possibility to fall into an abyss is smaller than with the fistpunch.
So use this attack everywhere where there are holes in the ground.
Together with the double jump you can expand this attack to the doublejump with slide glide. Look it up in the jumps chapter.

Uppercut
Duck down with the button button and then press button. Jak performs an uppercut. I only used this attack to move the wooden pillars on sentinel beach and to kill the spiders in spidercave, and nowhere else. But I don't want to be hit by this punch though.

Dive Attack
Jump with the button button and the press button.
Jak will summersault and smash down onto the ground or onto an enemy. You also need this attack to open the boxes with the scout flies inside.

OTHER MOVES
up

Duck down
To duck down press the button button.
If you are ducked down you can now perform a high jump (button) or even an uppercut(button).

Crawl
To crawl just duck down with button, keep it pressed and then move on with button.

Roll
To roll just press button while you are running.

position the camera
Use the right analog stick button to position the camera as you wish. Left and right moves the camera, up zooms in, down zooms out.

look around
Watch the world through Jak's goggles with the button button. To actually take a look around move button towards the direction you want to look.


So this is how Jak moves. But if you thought this is all you are wrong, there is more to come. Jak can also move in other way, especially so:



CONTROLS ON THE ZOOMER
up

Well, the controls on the Zoomer are just like you would expect them to be. At least if you have a bit of a feeling for the game already. Use the left analog stick to control the direction and speed up with button. And it is important to know that you can jump a bit with the button button.



CONTROLS ON THE FLUTFLUT
up

The FlutFlut can be controlled in the same way as you control Jak. The only difference is that you can now jump higher. And it flaps its wings after a jump so you can stay in the air for longer after a jump and make it over wider gaps.
