You will earn this trophy for completing all three levels of the game. There is no time limit for you to complete everything, so you can really take your time while clearing each level. The boss you encounter at the end of each one will be random and their fights, as such, will vary. The bosses and how to defeat them are all listed below.
You can do this without having any skills equipped, but it’s recommended you unlock a few to make it easier on yourself, mainly Born to Kale, Life Saver, and Weapon Specialist. While playing, you want to try and keep your health as full as possible. Before buying any healthpacks from the store, make sure you break everything you can in each section for a chance to get a heart. You don’t have to clear the buildings if you don’t want to, but the more you clear, the more item boxes you will get, and in turn, the most weapons/items you will have available to you. Save your bullets for the bosses and try to use your pistol as much as you can while clearing the levels.
For your item (), anything that does an area damage effect is ideal (grenades, molotovs, harp, etc). Personally, I highly recommend getting the harp if you can get your hands on it. When used, this attracts enemies and, when they touch it, they will immediately die. After a certain amount of kills (or after roughly a minute of being active), the harp will explode, killing all enemies nearby.
The bosses on each stage are as follows:
Level 1: Coco & Loco OR Broccoliath
Coco & Loco:
Coco is a coconut and Loco is a little alien that will pick him up and throw him down. There are two parts to this fight:
Coconut will start in the middle of the stage (you are free to hit him here). Eventually Loco will come by and pick him up. After a few seconds, Coco will start to spew an acid that will damage you if you’re not using the Tongue of Steel skill. To avoid it, you need to run in a wide circle in the same direction Coco and Loco are flying in.
After he’s done with the acid, Loco will toss Coco and when he lands, Coco will be vulnerable to attacks. At this time, 3 aliens will come down to attack you. Quickly burn them down and continue to attack Coco as much as you can. The aliens are immune to debilitating items such as the Harp, Music Note, etc. Plasma weapons do really good damage against them so even if you have just a Plasma Pistol, use that instead of a normal bullet weapon.
These two stages will rinse and repeat until Coco’s health has been depleted.
Out of the two bosses available for Level 1, this one is the easiest. He’ll do one of two actions:
- Chase you around the stage
- Stop and spawn mini broccoli adds as well as shoot rocks at you
While he’s chasing you, you can just make one giant loop around the stage, constantly shooting at him (or swinging if you have a long enough melee weapon). When he stops, you still want to be shooting at him, but keep an eye on the rocks and hit them with your melee weapon if needed to avoid being hit.
When the adds spawn, you don’t have to focus on them, but try and take them down as you go so you don’t accidentally run into one while running away from the main boss.
Level 2: The Shroomer, Sir Loin, and the Punk’O Lantern
The Shroomer (the Mushroom):
This boss will remain in the center of the stage and will be vulnerable to attack for the entire fight.
At the start, go crazy attacking him while there’s nothing else going on. After a few seconds, he’ll shoot a ring of orbs out from him 8 times. You can easily deflect these with your melee weapon or just do you best to dodge them. Along with the orbs, he’ll also start to spawn smaller add mushrooms. Burn these down quick as they will each periodically shoot one orb at you as well.
The ring of orbs and the add spawn will rinse and repeat until he has been defeated.
Sir Loin (the Carrot with the Pig on a stick):
At the start of the fight, the boss will start to chase you, hopping along as you run away. Keep running along the outer edges of the stage in a full circle to avoid being hit.
Eventually, he’ll stop chasing you and go into a whirlwind. When he does, you want to stay get on as opposite side of the stage as you can manage. After a few seconds, he will start to shoot blue orbs in a ring while he is spinning. You can deflect these with you melee weapon or do your best to dodge them (the former being the recommended). Along with the orbs, he’ll also spawn little carrot minions that will attack you. Burn these down as quick as you can and go back to fighting the main Carrot boss.
This process will repeat until he has been defeated.
Punk’O Lantern (the Pumpkin):
This is the more difficult of the three bosses available for the 2nd Level, but he’s not horrible. The issue comes from his range of movement at the start.
When the fight begins, he will start to chase you. His movement is that of jumping towards you, trying to crush you. The range for this is pretty high so you really need to make sure you are running in an open-enough area to get away from him. The boss stage of Level 2 can sometimes be cluttered with obstacles and buildings, so find a clear pathway and stick to it.
After chasing you, he’ll stop and start to spit fireballs at you. You can dodge these easily, but it’s recommended you hit at least one back at him so it makes contact. This will set him on fire and damage him for a few seconds. In this time, he will also spawn smaller pumpkin adds. Burn these down as quick as you can and get back to focusing on the main Pumpkin boss.
All of this will rinse and repeat until he has been defeated.
Level 3: Dragonfruit and Spiderfruit
This is a 2-part fight and you’ll end up fighting both bosses available for Level 3.
Part 1: The fight starts off with a Dragonftuit. He will filter through 4 attacks: Periodically setting the ground on fire, shooting 3 sets of purple orbs in your direction, shooting 1 line of blue orbs in your direction, and tossing up a yellow lemon-like balls which, when they hit the ground, will turn into an acid spill. Along with these, he will also periodically spawn smaller adds (his heads) which can quickly be killed by hitting them off the edge of the stage.
Your main focus of this fight will be that of an offensive approach. Melee the projectiles that come towards you and really watch where you’re running to make sure you’re not about to hit any fire or acid. Only attack the boss when you have a clear opening to do so.
When you get him down to 0 health, he will spawn one more smaller alien vegetable. This single one is Spiderfruit and is Part 2 of the boss fight.
This will be a literal run and gun fight. He runs after you and he is quick. Try not to run away in straight lines and make more of a circular motion if you can. Keep your gun aimed on him at all times and fire away (he doesn’t spawn any adds).
Keep running and shooting at him until he has been defeated.
