Wait about one second. jump and hold right. Do this again. Go to the side that he came out of when you hit him. Jump to the other side. Continue this and you will beat him easily. Notice that he speeds up every time you hit him. World Two: Seabed Showdown: get in between the oyster boss and the oyster in the corner. wait till the boss oyster moves to the opposite corner, then move out of the way. His pearl will hit the oyster in the corner and bounce off, hopefully hitting him. Repeat this process to beat the boss. Notice that he speeds up every time you hit him. World Three: Mole Hole Madness: wait until the mole looks to an angle, then jump on him. his hard hat should be off so you can hit him. Repeat this process to beat him. Notice that he speeds up every time he is hit. World Four: King K. Rool: There are different ways to beat this boss, but I selected the easiest method. Keep your distance, but keep him on the screen. Wait until he throws his crown. Jump over it and land on him. Run across the platform. Jump over him as he runs at you. Jump over the crown again and land on him. Do this a total of six times. Then, when you run acros the screen, DO NOT JUMP!! Run under him. Do this six times, then repeat the first process until he dies. (The first process is jumping over his crown and landing on him.) Notice that he, like the rest of the bosses, speeds up every time you hit him. Secret Exit in Last Ice Level In the last ice level, before the boss, in world 1, there is a "secret exit". 1.
