Bad Final Boss
How can a game as fantastic as this, that keeps you motivated to keep trying and trying and trying, getting faster and faster as you learn techniques to beat the level, have such a huge case of horrible final boss syndrome?

Sure, the final boss does everything a final boss should, make you make use of all of the skills that you have aquired, and if you die, it's your own fault. It does this fantastically, like every other boss and level in the game.

What it does that does NOT keep in pace with (most of) the rest of the game is keep the pacing up. For a game that, all throughout the game has encouraged you to go through a level faster and faster, respawning you satisfyingly fast, start off each new life with 10 seconds of not being able to do anything other than avoid rockets. All the prior levels were frustratingly hard, but at least they were satisfying and were fun, deep down past the anger there was always fun.

They made this final level just plain boring. It's literally the only part of the game that I haven't had any fun with. Idk, thoughts?

*sigh* maybe the frustration just finally got to me. At least it's not as bad as the Hell boss.

I don't even remember the final boss at this point, just cotton alley. I spent longer there than the rest of the game combined.

I agree with you.

I totally agree, I recently picked up the game and I'm loving it, but the final boss is hard, as it should be, you die a lot, this is ofc the fun thing about this game, the satisfaction of you beating a level or boss you're been dying to over and over again, but everytime you die in the final boss level you have to constantly wait for the saws to move.

This makes the final boss really tiring and just plain boring.

I really like the 'second part' but I hink the 1st half would be way more fun without the saws on the right

I agree too!
I think that the boss is waaay too slow compared to almost every single other level and boss in the game, and that it is simply a massive let-down :(
That is, it's slow unless you go over the wall of sawblades; then you can go as fast as you want :D
