    4. Bosses
    A. Spyro the dragon
    Hit points: 1
    Difficlty: 2 out of 5
    Ok so this is our first boss and it is one of the easiest in the game. To 
    start off with let us look at spyros attacks and what he can do with them.
    Ok Spyros only attack involves him throwing molotov cocktails at you (Why 
    would he have these anyway?). This attack will not do any damage to you 
    but will do damage to your bridge, you will now be like oh no not the bridge 
    saying it like it is not important but the bridge is the only thing keeping 
    you from your certain death. If the unfortunate thing happens that one of 
    your planks does fall off you will have to repair it by pressing the B button.
    all that is all we need to put on His attacks.
    All we need to do to kill him since he only has one hit point is to break his 
    side of the bridge. To do this you must throw some of your molotov cocktails 
    on to his side of bridge. One throw will make a part of his bridge crumble 
    and another throw will make it fall. To get rid of Spyro you must firstly 
    crumble any piece of his bridge and then when he is on that part of the 
    bridge make it fall and he will fall with the bridge, Easy.
    B. Tiny the Tiger
    Hit points: 3
    Difficulty: 3 out of 5
    Ok so this our second bosss, yay. Tiny the Tiger is a tiny bit harder than 
    Spyro the dragon so let us see his attacks.
    Tiny has two different attacks as well as a sheild, his first attack involves 
    him firing a ball of energy at you. You must dodge this attack as this will 
    actually damage you unlike the last battle. To dodge this attack all you need 
    to do is move away, now let us go onto Tiny's second attack. Tiny's second 
    attack involves him firing a cannon ball into the air and trying to hit you 
    with it. The cannonball that he fires will firstly go so high you will not be 
    able to see it it will then start to come down you will be able to see where 
    it is going to land due to the fact that you see its shadow, make sure you 
    get a distance away from it otherwise the afterfire will hit you.
    To actually damage Tiny you must shoot him when his sheild is down, his 
    sheild will go down when he fires an energy ball. You will notice that the 
    wall in front of him will go down for a split second this is your chance to 
    shoot. So when he is about to fire shoot him when the wall and the sheild is 
    down. This will not work for the big cannonballs because they go over the 
    wall so the walls will not go down. Repeat this method three times to 
    destroy The tiger, two down three to go. 
    C. Nina Cortex
    Hit points: none
    Difficulty: ? out of five (depends on your reflexes)
    Cortex's niece is our third boss and can be difficult if you don't have very 
    good reflexes let us see her attacks.
    Nina Cortex doesn't have any attacks really, the only thing she can do is 
    touch you when you try and get away. If she touches you you will turn into a 
    little angel and fly away this means that you are dead yuo can't dodge this 
    all you can do is turbo away from her.
    To damage Nina we must firstly get away from her, to do this we must firstly 
    turbo away from her and jump over the pits and repeat this until you get to 
    the end of the level. Once at the end Nina will get caught inside a cage that 
    Spyro drops on he. Once this is done you have finished the level. 
    D. Ripto's mystical magical tour
    Hit points: 3
    difficulty: 3 out of 5
    Ripto, Spyro's arch enemy and our fourth boss is relatively easy so let us see 
    what he can do.
    Ripto has three attacks the first one is when he launches bats at you, these 
    you can destroy but it is advised that you don't because if you destroy them 
    they will launch three little fireballs at you, so just dodge them. The 
    second attack involves Ripto firing three massive fireballs you must dodge 
    these because they are hard to dodge, to dodge these simply go into the gap 
    between the flames. Ripto's third attack involves him sending a pitoc in a jet 
    pack to stop you, just ddge this thing. Oh yeah there is one more attack that 
    comes from the ground and it isn't Ripto's, flames come up from the ground to 
    dodge them keep at the edge of the screen.
    To damage Ripto you must firstly look at his first attack when he launches 
    the bats at you, when they come to you you must look for a arker version of 
    them, this is the one you are meant to shoot because it will make Ripto do 
    his second attack. When he launches his second attack his sheild will go down 
    this is your chance to hurt him, repeat this method three times to stop him 
    once and for all. 
    E. Space chase
    Hitpoints: three
    Difficulty: 3 out of five
    Our last boss has three hit points, not hard. There is an extra thing to this 
    boss fight though... You have a timer. Let us see Cortex's attacks. 
    Cortex has three attacks the first one is when he uses his jet boosters to 
    damage you. They will shoot flames at you to dodge this simple attack move 
    into the middle of the boosters. His next attack involves him firing a gun 
    this shoots in every direction so just constantly move about to dodge it. 
    His last attack is when he uses his arms, these are pretty big. To dodge them 
    you mus stay near the bottom of the screen, and that is it for the last 
    boss's attack.
    To damage Cortex you must firstly shoot his jet boosters, shoot them after 
    their attack they both take four hits each. Once this is done shoot the gun 
    that you see before it shoots you this also takes four hits and then Cortex 
    will launch his hands out. To get rid of these you must shoot the three parts 
    to them, wait for them to swing and then go up close and shoot them. Each part
    will take three hits each, once all this is done you have completed the game.
