There are definitely some more advanced techniques you can pull off in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2, but they’re largely based on situational positions. You can also choose to enable more classic control options taken from the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. Bear in mind that these modes will disable any of the more advanced moves that were added in later games, such as reverts and spine transfers.
