If you have seen the movies, you pretty already know how to fly the Iron Man suit. Basically, the thrusters are under Stark’s palms and feet.


If your palms are facing forward you will fly backward, face them backward with your arms on your sides to fly forward. If you have a basic understanding of physics and momentum, you won’t have a hard time flying around in the game. You can make adjustments to your flight pattern by using your like of sight.

  • Auxiliary Weapons:  Hold the Move Controllers forward as your palms face down.
  • Unibeam – When fully charged, hold X on the left controller and circle on the right controller to shoot.
