Easy Final Boss Strategy

Very easy way to kill the final boss. The laser owns him. A health tip/trick as well...

Phase 1:
Use the laser to kill the bottom two tentacles. With the top two tentacles still alive, leave them alive. Instead use them to your advantage, and use your laser as a wall of death to all of his projectiles that he is shooting at you. This is SO easy that you can almost just spin in a circle with your laser and this will work with little effort to move side to side from stragglers. This will cause him to release health. Do this long enough and you will have your screen littered with health, leaving you setup for an easy 2nd phase. Once you have enough health laser the top two and continue to phase two.

Phase 2:
Two things work well here. The laser and the shield work well to get rid of the missiles flying at you. Really your focus should not be the incoming rockets but instead not hitting the bosses laser fields. You just need to get close to his eye, you dont need to get all the way down. And remember there is a larger window than you might realize to go through the lasers. If its light pink you can still cross without getting hurt. If you did the health trick, any of the incoming rockets should be of no concern to you, because as you as get hit by one there is health right around you.

Phase 3:
Two things work well here also. You should also have some health lying around from the first two phases if you did well enough not to use them all up. If not, you can keep your distance and use the laser as a wall of death and let him drop health everywhere again just like the first phase. Or to finish him off the default plasma gun at the bottom of the wheel upgraded to 3 shots works wonders. This phase should pose little thread since all of his projectiles come from him in the center and you can easily get health from him with the laser when you need it. He should die pretty quickly anyway.
