Under rating threshold (show) I thought everyone was just whining about the final boss. Well, first time I got three rainbow bonuses and two rages and I still couldn't beat him. Took a few tries but finally he raged on me when I had a counter bonus set up and we knocked each other out, which apparently counts as a victory. Awesome.

Under rating threshold (show) I beat the boss basically by having max defense upgrade and keeping the shield up. look for x4 all the time, recover health so you can take at least 100 dmg when you're not shielded. recover energy as needed. rage when there's nothing for you to do. Also, it's better to keep shield up so you don't take damage even if octopis attacks. with shield and counter on, you can take down the boss

Under rating threshold (show) Now I finished the game with all 3 characters. Concerning the luck factor: somehow all match 3 games are a bit luck based. My tip is to play with Ryu first: like mentioned full upgrade and use counter attack and defense in the last fight and it'll be not that hard. I had the most problems when playing with Pixel (with Bit the Bunny it was also easy). Epic game, hoping for a second part!

Under rating threshold (show) There's a lot more strategy to this than I expected, I'm impressed. Multiplayer would be awesome, but adjustable difficulty levels with smarter and dumber AI would be even more awesome. The AI sure makes a lot of stupid moves, at least in the earlier levels.

Under rating threshold (show) @FateIsEscaped: Actually, the best strategy IS to let the boss get purple/grey combos. After you've set up perfect shield and counter, so that the boss kills himself with said combo.

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty much cruised through the game until the octopos, but now I've lost more battles in a row against him than I have against everyone else in the entire game up to this point. Don't feel much incentive to keep at it until I get the lucky win it seems to need. Like the game, but it needs rebalancing.

Under rating threshold (show) How to beat the last boss: Set up 100% defense and 144% counter. Hope he combos himself to death. It worked eventually. This is a great little Puzzle Fighter clone, but a few points: Firstly, Heal is WAY too weak. It's basically worthless after the first few levels, it just doesn't do enough to matter. Secondly, every combo should give some benefit. If you get two attacks in the same combo, you do twice the damage, but two defense or counters does nothing. They should stack with each other. Similarly, defense should be able to go above 100%, with any additional defense healing you. That said, with those changes to defense/counter, the base values should probably be lowered quite a bit to retain balance.

Under rating threshold (show) Strategy guide: Pass your turn (by waiting) unless you can get 1) a 4+ clear or 3+3 of the same color 2) an attack/rage 3) a counter/defense/heal/energy that does not open you up for getting attacked. Also, don't take the last valid move; a fresh grid is very helpful. I beat the game with just 67% upgrades this way.

Under rating threshold (show) The boss becomes super easy if you make sure you leave no attack moves for him to use, for he'll always go for attack first. Always go for 4x combo. Collect rage when it won't leave you open to getting attacked on the bosses turn. Don't bother with healing (unless it's a 4x combo), it heals far too little to counter the damage taken at this point. Let the timer run out when; you can't shield and counter (prioritizing shield if you have a choice between the two and can't do both), or you can't attack, this leaves the boss with crappy tiles and in the position to shuffle the board pieces around for your turn.

Under rating threshold (show) Final boss is pretty tough no matter what anyone says. 50% of how quickly you beat him is luck. Of course there is strategy.Obviously you want everything max upgraded. Defense and counter are gunna be your main moves here. But, really the only way to beat him before he kills you is to get huge combos. One thing to take advantage of is the AI. It will usually always pick a special attack, then regular attack if available. When it looses health, he'll use healing gems most turns. If you can get him low enough, just keep attacking and your attacks should overpower his healing. Rage is also very important. But never use Rage if he has a counter or defense on, that will just waste it.

Under rating threshold (show) Rage is counterable, you don't always receive the heals you should from gems, there is WAY too much luck involved and the time factor is BS.

Under rating threshold (show) The octopus powering up shouldn't cancel out my move if it's still in progress, especially since you can't control the order of what tiles are activated (i.e. it attacked him first, causing him to power up, before activating shield and counter, so I died on his first attack).

Under rating threshold (show) I just pulled off the greatest thing ever in this game. Got a big bang with defense, giving me 100% mitigation, then used the singularity to break all of the counter squares, giving me over 400% damage reflect, in the process tipping my rage mater over the limit, and fully recharging my health and energy. Then the poor AI decided it wanted to use its rage attack, sorry big guy, but you do nothing, and I hit you for over 600 and win.

Under rating threshold (show) By the way, the enemy AI ignores all 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-a-kind unless there is no 3-match of attack tiles for it to match (physical or special). You can use that to your advantage. Enemy usually matches life tiles and ignores all others when low on health.

Under rating threshold (show) Best way to beat boss is always try and take the attack/special attack bonus if there is one available, so that the squid can't attack you. Save defense and counter when there is more than one attack/special attack available, and just tank the damage.

Under rating threshold (show) Guys, trust me, even the last boss isn't too bad. (he is the hardest, of course, but totally beatable) Basic idea is to never let the enemy get purple or grey combos. Even if you have to give up your current turn to do it. You just have to be able to read the gems, and see what consequences your combo will have. Also since the gems at the top of the screen are random, it's usually best to do a horizontal 3 combo, rather than a vertical combo, if you have the choice. Another tip is, if there are 2 purple combos to get, instead of you getting 1, try to get a defense or counter combo. The AI will always go for a purple gem combo. By using a defense/counter combo you lessen the total effect of his combo. Another tip is, you can leave your character on a fight, go browse some stuff, and come back to free gems. (each higher boss gives more gems/does more damage)

Under rating threshold (show) TIP FOR HARD CHALLENGE Pick RYU(dog) Max out till you get to the boss and every turn try to block if you can and use counter as a backup. Together they are unstoppable....also IF THERE ARE NO ATTACKS AVAILABLE SKIP YOUR TURN BY LETTING THE TIMER RUN OUT!!!! +++IF U AGREE!!!

Under rating threshold (show) If you're having problems with the final boss: Max out your defense/counters, and aim for getting Defense icons above all else. 100% damage block will be useful, and as long as you're matching vertical blue shields you should be making chain reactions that will give you attacks, counter bonuses, and fill your rage. If you can't match blue shields, match any attack gems that your opponent could use, but pick the HORIZONTAL ones so that no surprise gems fall down and line up a different set of attack gems. Control the board, and it shouldn't be too hard. Good luck!

Under rating threshold (show) For the final boss the greatest advice is to pray and steal every rage, special, and attack. That's how i did it in 20 minutes of luck. The only issue is the stupid counterattacks. Basically just watch each enemy goes after specific pieces in order, so if you can find that order you can plan ahead, and maybe force a few moves ;) Basically good luck

Under rating threshold (show) FINAL BOSS SECRETS - It is often better to not move at all and let time tick down for your move.... sometimes That way the final Squid Boss only uses up some crappy non-attack moves, and brings down some better gems for you to kick his arse with... Plus this and keep this afloat if this helps you to defeat the Squid..

Under rating threshold (show) I've played both Ryu and Pixel and beat the final boss on my first try with both of them, Pixel only at 75% upgrades. Bit took a second try after upgrading a bit, but I won with full life. Just gotta be patient and play smart: go counter/defense if you're in threat of being smacked, go attack/magic if his defenses are down, otherwise charge up on energy/life/rage. You'll last long enough that eventually you'll get enough bombs and x5's to get him down.

Under rating threshold (show) Sometimes really, really look like just a luck game. Fun fact with the final boss : supernova black hole on pink (counter) and some blue drops with. Now have 100% armor and 425% counter. Final boss made Purple attack and Rage attack : I took 0, and counter 400 + 800. Lucky ending. Resuming this game in one sentence : "Sometimes, you win."

Under rating threshold (show) Great game you have here! Even though I beat the game with all 3 characters, I find myself coming back to play more. The problem I have is that I think you get too many gems for losing near the end. The boss isn't as hard as people say too... Just max out defense and use it! The boss will end up wasting all his energy for nothing. Replay value could be better, but it is so fun anyway! 5/5
