View Full Version : Tips for the final boss!

Alright, just aced it, so I thought I'd share my stategy.

1st Form

Learn where he hits for the first two punches. Quickly nab the brains while he's down.

Diffuculty - Easy

1.5th Form

Avoid the punch. After nabbing the brain, run to the right hand side of the to avoid the electric balls. Avoid the next punch, nab the brain, and run to the left side to avoid the balls.

Difficulty - Easy

2nd Form

Quickly hit the left hand brain before he starts moving. When he rises his left arm, try squeeze underneath it quickly, and remove all brains from the left arm. When he tries to send enemies after you, get them all on one side of you, e.g. YOU ENEMY ENEMY. Jump carefully and quickly to kill them. Then finish off his right arm, using the same method. Now two brains will appear inside his hands. This can be tricky, seeing as you might get pushed around the floor alot by the way he moves. Just try and time it so you get under his hand just as he hits it. Repeat for both hands.

Difficulty - Medium

3rd Form

Ok. Quickly try and get the brains on the sides of his machine before it starts moving. Once it does start moving, make sure you stay inside the space between the two "electric balls" which are being fired. Also, try to time your jump so when you land on the one on the side, you also bounce up and hit the one above it. If you're lucky, you can do all those before he moves on to the next pattern.

Assuming you did :

Go through another pattern like that, just don't die, be careful. When that ends, a block should land after he lands. Quickly position it in front of him, and nail the brain in the middle of him. Sorted.

Assuming you didn't :

He's gonna jump in the air and land now, and he's followed by a large amount of electric balls floating down to the ground. I suggest you run to the right hand side as far as possible for this, as they won't reach you. After that, run back, and try and get the last brains on his arms. BEWARE THE ELECTRIC BALLS. Now he's gonna jump and land again, only this time, a block will fall down for you. Once this block is down, quickly position it in front of him, and nail the last brain inside him. Avoid the rest of the floating balls coming down, and we're done!

Difficulty - Medium / Hard


Run to the right. Keep going, and a cut scene of sorts will happen.

Congrats! You just aced the big boss! Yellowhead costume is now yours!

You only get it once you complete the level without dying.
