|Area 8 part 2|
Surface part 3
Unlike the usual bosses in this game, the Plasma Beam actually works against him, and I assume it's probably the most effective weapon to use here.
His first phase is pathetically easy, he just flies overhead and cycles between doing an easy to dodge projectile, and a tail whip attack that can be easily dodged by space jumping up in the air.
I guess the safest strategy in the third phase is to just keep space jumping in the air and get a charged shot in whenever you can... I'm just like, constantly space jumping against the wall while baiting him into doing his ground projectile attack, and then turning around to get a shot in whenever he's between attacks... whenever he does an air dash move or something, I just jump way high up above him and shoot down a few times... this is REALLY slow, i bet there's probably a better strategy... I used up all my Beam Burst too, but still it took so long that I eventually made too many mistakes and died.
Actually, yeah, that doesn't work too well... I then figured out a much better strategy... running into the corner, and jumping over his ground projectile, baits him into just using his ground projectile over and over again. He does sometimes still jump ontop of me and I usually can't dodge that, but it's uncommon enough that I didn't have any problem beating him on the 4th try.
