Just be patient and destroy the two tentacles before even attempting to hit the main boss. Trying to hit the boss while being fired at was what undid me. If you kill the tentacles there is nothing else on screen and nothing firing at you when the boss pops up.

It's the boss that took me the most retries to beat. Worst level in Sonic Mania.

Agreed.

No idea why they brought these stages back. They're just not very fun.

Took me 2 tries. Least fun stage/boss so far.

So what? You'd have to be pretty sucky to let that happen.

The environment outright doesn't behave as it should. It feels like a glitch.

The tentacles come up along with the boss > You jump on the boss and expect to land back in the oil > Instead you instantly die.

It doesn't really make any sense. You expect to bounce back into the oil, but instead Sonic just inexplicably gets sucked into hell.

I dunno, I've beaten it twice with zero issue other than getting hit once. And I didn't need more than one life either time. I've seen Tails die to the insta-kill apparently but that's all.

Oil Ocean was a lame level/boss in Sonic 2 and it still is here

Lmao I just dont understand all of the topics on this. Youd think this was the final boss.

Take out the Lava Reef turrets first and then take the Octo head on after that. Its all about timing dont rush and you dont die.

On my first playthrough I died once because I forgot I could jump out of the oil, after that the next life I took him down its pretty much Lava Reef and Oil Ocean bosses mixed together.

I didnt even know that there was an instakill attack until coming to the forums.

You guys disgust me. Git gud.
This guy are sick.

It must be a glitch. I've never seen this happen.

I whipped this boss first try with sonic but did have a harder time with Knuckles. You can't jump out of the oil when the platform is fully raised which made it tricky. After needing to continue I decided to git gud and beat it pretty easily. Just gotta take it slow and destroy the guns before going after the octopus. I almost ran out of time since I played a bit too conservatively

I did die once where it seemed like the platform rising out of the oil instakilled me, but it could have been the octopus. Otherwise I never got killed from hitting the octopus.

And not sure why people don't like this level. Burning up the oil all over is awesome and entering the subs is cool too. The gas/fog whatever mechanic similar to sandopolis zone from s&ok is neat as well. I like it much more than the original (which also wasn't bad).
