There’re only three levels with three bosses. Each level contains of two randomly genegated arenas. The game has five types of arenas.
A swimming pool
There’s a pool of acid in the bottom of the level that slowly goes up and deals a damage about 10% of HP scale each second.
A three-staged atrium-ish arena
The best option is climb on the upper stage and catch all the jumpers with bullets
Arena with a giant totem in the center
Large spaces allows you to run around the totem and shoot all the enemies falling down. Bonus item is in the highest point of map.
This arena is very comfortable to play with so many high points and a space in center. Also a hook is very useful here.
The easiest and a largest map with the most number of enemies. Just run and shoot and jump and shoot and run…
Every map has an additional item that steal a half of your health when you take it (like the hook or the black hole) but sometimes you give your health for nothing
Just don’t press ‘F’.
And one more thing. Enemies always stuck in the walls. You can hear them, you can take the damage if you stay close to the wall, you can kill them if you shoot straight through the wall.
There’s an acid under the floor. When the ant explodes it destroys the floor and the columns and releases six more little ants. So the best way to win is to stay away from explosions or use the black hole to explode four of them together.
The level is the well with an acid fast filling it from the bottom to the top. There’re two ways to go up – stairs and a ramp. To avoid stings and go up faster use the hook. Exit is in the upper point.
acid fills it very quickly
If you don’t get extra health or armor it kills you with a single shot. Be prepared. The hook is recommended but not necessary. Double jump is enough. The best option is to have all the damage boosted items to kill it faster.
Hyena (??) has three phases:
1) shoots three times with a green wave and run straight at you
2) creates some minions and shoots a long and slower wave
3) shoots faster and runs at you more often.
At the end of this level there will be to options: to escape (go to menu) or to continue (new game+).
