    I.Half-Life
    
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    There are two ways to deal with him:
    
    1.The Fast Way:
    
    You MUST have noticed the four generators in this area. I knew they had some
    use. Punch all for of them. Now stand in such a position that both of you are
    lined up with the generator. Since if you touch him you will get damaged, throw
    something at him so that he goes flying into the generator. This will take out
    at least 1/4th of his life bar. You can also lure him into charging at you and
    then jumping out of the way but that would be difficult, as you DONT know when
    is he going to charge. It may even take ages. Anyways, keep throwing him at the
    generators to deplete his life bar. Since you have to finish TWO of his life
    bars, you need to push him eight times into the generator. This is a much
    faster way then the one written below.
    
    2.The Slow Way:
    
    This is the slower way. Alright, forget about touching him because as I told
    you earlier, it will damage you instead of him. Remember to use the rage meter
    as soon as it builds up, I would recommend you to use the super overhead smash.
    Instead of the focusing on your moves, why don't you make use of all the
    beautiful things available nearby to smash into him. They regenerate at a
    steady speed, so grab anything in sight and let him have it. Keep attacking
    him until you end up winning. Oh and remember to jump away if he charges at
    you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    II.Madman
    
    Difficulty: 6.5/10
    
    Your first and foremost objective is to save betty. So as soon as the boss
    fight begins, immediately hit madman. You must have noticed the four computer
    terminals nearby. You have to take them out. The best advice here would be to
    use the overhead smash as soon as you can and as frequently as you can. Try to
    ignore the other enemies. You start the actual boss fight after taking out the
    computer terminals.
    
    He has a couple of attacks under his belt. If he charges at you, be sure to
    jump out of the way. Dodge the fire balls when he starts stomping on the
    ground. Avoid the rockets and other enemy fire from the gamma guards through
    out the whole course of the fight. Always keep an eye out for nearby objects
    and enemies to throw at him. I've found the sonic clap to be useful against
    him, if timed properly. But the best way to take him out is to fill your rage
    meter and then use it for a super overhead smash, as many times as you can.
    You can also position yourself in such a way that when you dodge the upcoming
    rockets, they hit Madman.
    Use the other combos as well and keep attacking him till his life bar ends.
    
    Glitch: You are invincible while lifting a gamma guard. Use this glitch to
    your advantage.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    III.Flux
    
    Difficulty: 6.5/10
    
    The first part of this boss fight involves destroying the three power cells
    which you must have noticed nearby. Go towards a power cell and keep attacking
    it until a grenade drops near you. Quickly back off and wait for it to explode.
    If you were lucky, the power cell will have been further damaged by the blast.
    Keep changes positions from one power cell to the other until all three have
    been destroyed. You force field should go down now.
    
    Now grab hold of flux and throw him into the core. This will take out at least
    1/4th of his life bar. He will now jump onto the floor above and keep lobbing
    grenades at you for a short time. Stay in motion because otherwise you will
    get hit by the grenades. Keep repeating this until you end his life bar. He
    will get ANOTHER life bar after that. Same strategy applies.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    IV.Ravage
    
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Ok, first things first. NEVER charge towards ravage, because he will counter
    attack you and take a good chunk out of your life. As always a sonic clap is
    very useful. Start attacking him after he is stunned. DONT forget to use the
    super overhead smash, it is also an effective attack. But the attack that
    stands out is the gamma stomp. Yes, the gamma stomp will noticeably damage
    him. Better yet, the charged gamma stomp will even damage him further. It's
    best to just wait and have him charge at you and then do a gamma stomp. After
    that, avoid him and throw all types of things at him. Be it rocks, broken
    equipment etc. Just keep beating him until his life bar ends.
    
    Now for the second part. This time he has armed gamma guards assisting him.
    Very clever. I would advise you to take out the gamma guards first as they can
    be a big problem. You can either throw them off the side or you can just pound
    them. Try to ignore ravage while dealing with them. After you are done with
    them, focus your attention on ravage. Now defeat him using the same tactics as
    before.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    V.Madman And Half-Life
    
    Difficulty: 8/10
    
    This is one of the difficult boss battles. Focus most of your attention on
    madman, he can be a real pain if not dealt properly. The sonic clap, although
    useful, but I will suggest against it as it requires timing. Instead use the
    gamma stomp as much as you can. This will not only damage him but also bring
    down rocks and other stuff. Grab the rocks etc and throw as many as you can on
    both of them. The gamma stomp is also very useful for half-life. In short,
    DONT STOP USING THE GAMMA STOMP UNLESS YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE TOILET. As always,
    the super overhead smash is your best friend, DONT FORGET to use it. When
    madman loses 3/4th of his life; he flees leaving behind half-life. The battle
    should become pretty straightforward after madman leaves.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    VI.The Leader
    
    Difficulty: 9/10
    
    You start as Bruce. You have to activate all four switches. The leader will
    try to attack you by teleporting next to you. The best strategy here would be
    to go to one switch and wait for the leader. As soon as he teleports next to 
    you, go towards the switch opposite the current one. Use it. Now wait for the
    leader and do the same when he arrives. Keep repeating this until all four
    switches have been activated. A cut-scene will start.
    
    Now you are in control of the hulk again. The leader is flying around the area
    shooting some sort of beam at you. DONT try to get to close unless you have an
    attack ready because he will push you back using some sort of mind control.
    Anyhow, avoid the beam and attack the leader. He will teleport himself after
    being hit. Keep repeating this. He also has an attack in which he unleashes a
    continuous massive beam. In order to avoid it, get behind the side of one of
    the elevators and wait for him to finish. He usually teleports twice in a very
    short time before doing this attack, so use that as a sign. After finishing
    the massive beam attack, the leader will make a couple of copies of himself.
    The copies and not only completely harmless but also drop orbs. Keep repeating
    the above strategy until he ends up losing.
    
    Now he gets another life bar. This time he also has those stupid armed gamma
    guards to help him as well. As always, focus your attention on the armed
    gamma guards first. Use the super overhead smash if your rage meter is full.
    Otherwise the gamma stomp is an effective alternate attack. Try to stay away
    from the leader while dealing with the gamma guards. After you are done with
    the guards focus your attention on the leader. Use the same tactics as you
    did the last time. He has only one extra attack this time. At the end of the
    massive continuous beam, he usually gives off a couple of extra short beams.
    Keep an eye out for them. Keep pounding him, eventually more gamma guards will
    come to his aid. Try to ignore THEM this time. Keep at it until you finally
    defeat the most difficult boss the game.

    VII.Madman
    
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    You have to fight madman one last time. He has the same attacks as before and
    you must also use the same tactics as before. Try to use the gamma stomp as
    much as you can and don't forget to throw all sorts of things at him. The sonic
    clap is also an effective attack. DONT forget to use the super overhead smash
    attack when your rage meter is full. He has only one life bar and you should
    be done with him fairly quickly. The only slight problem is that you DONT have
    enough room, plus he seems to use the ground stuff more often now, keep that
    in mind when dealing with him.
