Abilities and Boss Tips

Shooting Star Arrow
This move comprises of two parts, the first one is the flashy animation that is followed by the raining down of flashy orbs from the sky. It is easy to dodge. This is the flashiest of Zarbon’s abilities.


This is the second part of the shooting star arrow called grab and is impossible to dodge. When the orbs are raining down, Zarbon will fly towards you in a very fast speed and grab you dealing damage in the process. You need to fly as far away from him as possible till the star rain stops.

Wild Blaster
Move out of the way when Zarbon shoots an energy beam towards you called wild blaster.

Wild Headbutt
