His lightning attack can be avoided at a safe distance, but harder when closer to him. You can dodge his lance by crouching low and slashing him. Act 1-2 --Boss: Minotaurus-- He'll try to jump on you, slash at you and fire off a projectile. The strategy you ask? Once he lands, hit him and RUN away from where he was standing. You'll be able to anticipate the projectile. DO NOT get too close to the walls. Doing so may quickly finish you instead of the boss. He's quite difficult considering his speed is far greater than yours. Act 2-1 --Boss: Night Creature-- Way too easy for a boss...no? The trick is to get on the upper right platform and jump the fireballs he spits at you. Take a slash at him (don't get too greedy!) and repeat. If you try to jump after him, he'll just go to the other platforms and do the fireball thing over again. You'll likely be knocked to your death if you try to chase him around. Patience pays off a lot here. Act 2-2 --Boss: Wizard-- The first form is very easy to defeat. Jump the triple fireballs and avoid the lightning hitting him as many times as you can. It's better to hit him from the bottom platforms. Next, he'll transform into a werewolf and begin jumping from wall to wall. If at this point you still have lots of HP left, fight as viciously as you can. Otherwise, hit him ONCE when he howls and watch out for the projectiles that come after his howl. Act 3-1 --Boss: Sand Lion-- This boss is difficult (IMO) due to his variety of attacks. The sand makes everything harder and when he burrows under the sand, watch out for two tentacles that'll come ripping to ya. After the tentacles reach the center, the beast will rear it's ugly head spitting stuff at you. Crouch, hit, and jump the tentacles. Act 3-2 --Boss: Golden Pharaoh-- He'll try to crush you, spit fireballs at you, and make shooting heads appear depending which direction the fireball is headed. Avoid the little heads, run under the big head, slash, and repeat. Act 4-1 --Boss: Serpent-- Hey! Where'd that projectile come from? I dunno...well use that advantage to your fullest to outwit this fast-moving moster. You'll be able to get a few hits and try not to jump often. Doing so usually leads to many deaths. Take your time, and remember, his head is the only vulnerable spot. Act 4-2 --Boss: Flaming Wheel-- Man this is one difficult dude! He follows you and shoots these green things at you. I suggest using a source of magic such as the STARDUST magic to beat him considering you have enough scrolls. Otherwise, hit and and try not to take so many hits. Act 5-1 --Boss: Giant Plant-- The fireballs are easily avoided but the vine can cause quite a lot of pain. This boss requires much timing and patience to outwit and defeat. Run toward him, jump the vine, and slash him and quickly run back. Repeat the same strategy and you'll prevail. Act 5-2 --Boss: Snake God-- The magic power, MAGICAL LIGHT is definitely the best to beat this boss. Uh, never mind. He'll drop spikes and drop himself onto you. Avoid the spikes, his lightning attack, and hit him when he tries to crush you. Simple enough right? Act 6-1 --Boss: Cave Gargoyle-- You best be waiting in the corner and slash him when he gets near you. If you're lucky, you'll be able to pull off two hits on this guy and he'll be toast. Act 6-2 --Boss: Ice Dragon-- STARDUST MAGIC will definitely pay off here and will aid you greatly. Else, it him in the back when he lowers himself and prepares to shoot at you. Final Boss TRY FOR YOURSELF! SEE WHAT HAPPENS! I'LL UPDATE THIS SECTION IF I FEEL LIKE IT. I'VE HELPED YOU LONG ENOUGH...NOW IT'S TIME TO SEE WHAT YOU GOT!!!
