Third Jump?

11 replies 316 views Edited Sep 20, 2012

So, I know each character has a jump and double-jump of some form, but (since I never got the beta) there's one thing I could never figure out for certain.  In Smash Bros., most characters also usually had a "third jump" in the form of an upward-facing special attack (B+Up).

 

Does something like this exist in PSASBR?  Or are the characters stuck with only two jumps?

It's not a third jump exactly, which is why you've put them in quotes of course, but as n0rm has said, it's a recovery attack.

From what ive seen some do But as a mechanic its purpose is more for avoiding attacks than recovering from a fall so its not a universal mechanic falling off the stage does not = instant death but a AP penalty and a short stun

Good point; I hadn't even realized that the lack of ring-outs would pretty much defeat the purpose of recovery attacks. Smiley LOL

 

But still, it's really good to hear that certain characters have extra jump/float abilities while others get by on their own attacks.  It really shows the variety that SuperBot is putting into all the characters.

On another note, I'm probably one of the only people who never thought to call it a "recovery."  I always just referred to it as the "B 'n' Up" move. Smiley Tongue
