|World 6 Boss Guide|
|How the boss fights||Fireballs, flame walls, jumping, stomping, hitting|
|How to Defeat the Boss||**Note: like in most of the recent Mario vs Bowser fights you will need to fight him 2 times to clear this level.Bowser fight 1: Pretty simple stay back and dodge his fireballs. When he goes for a high jump run under him and jump on the ! switch. This is pretty much the same scenario as Mario Brothers Wii.
Bowser fight 2: This fight is going to be much much harder.
Start by jumping around the platforms and when bowsers eyes light up move away from the platform you are on to a platform on the other side as he is going to swipe you with a hand swat. Keep avoiding his attacks and flames.. there isn’t to much you can do at this point other then just not get hit.
When you get to the final area where you can see Peach in the cage jump on the giant! Switch and you will defeat Bowser an win the level.
|Fighting Tips & Tricks||Before you get into the fight with Koopa there are three blocks with power ups. Grab the Super Leaf then take a run to charge up your power meter.Basically after the first fight where you send him down into the pits of hell all your doing is trying not to get hit, there isn’t to much you can do other then dodge his attacks to try and stay alive.|
