Achilles Game Tips and Tricks
1. For every boss except the last, just kick him repeatedly until he dies. If you do it right, he won’t be able to attack you. If you mess up a couple of times, that’s okay, so long as you don’t lose more than one life per level.
2. For the final boss, LET HIM KILL YOU once. Then, AS SOON AS YOU RESPAWN beat the crap out of him repeatedly with your sword while you’re still flashing and invincible. Not only can he not hurt you for these couple of seconds, he can’t disrupt your attack, allowing you to get a lot of damage in quickly.
3. In order to do this, you should have 3 lives at the beginning of level 5. It is really hard to make it through level 5 stage 2 without dying, and you need 2 lives at the beginning of the level 5 boss for my strategy to work.
4. It is ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT that you not die against the level 2 boss. it will end the level immediately without awarding you a kill, making the hard badge impossible on that save.
