It is now known that Cuphead is a pretty challenging game. The side-scrolling Boss Rush Bonanza, with a beautiful cartoon style of the 1930s, made waves when it launched on Xbox One and PC in 2017. The stylish platformer with Cuphead and his brother Mugman is now available on Nintendo Switch. Cuphead is pretty relentless from the start. One of them, if not the first one you are fighting against, is proof of that. The good old Goopy Le Grande definitely fits the level title "Ruse of a Ooze". If you're having trouble putting the last nail in Goopy's coffin, our guide will help you get to know this forest creature, which is certainly not a slime. Dragon Quest.
When you cross the bridge in Inkwell Isle One, head north to an odd multicolored tree where Goopy lives. Although Goopy is a sweet spot we would like to use as a pillow, he wants to hit Cuphead's face.
First Phase of Goopy
Like all Cuphead bosses, Goopy has several stages to fight with. In the first phase, Goopy is just a small spot hopping on the screen. Pay close attention to how far he jumps before you crash again. Sometimes Goopy jumps high with short range and sometimes with lower range. This is the key to avoid damage from above. In general, you can be near the screen pages without fear of being hit. However, you will have to occasionally make a detour if you find that Goopy will land on the screen.
The other move Goopy makes in his first phase is that he turns himself into a giant boxing glove. This movement is heavily choreographed, as you will see Goopy stretch backwards before getting off. This movement covers about half of the screen. Depending on where you are in terms of Goopy, you may need to go to the side of the screen and complain again and again. If there is no room to get out of the range of the attack, you must jump over it before it leaps forward.
After a few rounds of switching between jumping and swinging, Goopy gets angry
Goopy's second phase
In Goopy's second phase, he does pretty much the same thing. Except this time, you can not hang on the sides of the screen. Goopy is very big now. Stay on the ground and use your dashboard extensively. You have to do this so as not to get hit.
Goopy's other attack in his second phase is much easier to avoid than in his first phase. He conjures a red boxing glove and ends with authority. All you have to do to avoid this is duck. Goopy can not hit you while you're crouching, and you can still shoot bullets into him while he's taking his shot.
After a few laps, Goopy is destroyed by a gravestone with Goopy's face (all very meta). 19659004] Goopy's Third Phase
Even though Goopy is dead and dead, the fight continues. You must now destroy the gravestone, although it is written that Goopy is already resting in peace. The third phase is about fast reflexes. You have to shoot up on Goopy's face on the gravestone. This means that it is helpful to try to stick to it while it moves around the background.
When the tombstone stops in its tracks, it's time to blow up. The only attack of the gravestone is to crash first on the screen face. If you do not turn right when the gravestone stops, it is difficult to avoid because of the size of the grave stone.
Best weapons and charm for Goopy
Since it's early in the game you will not have much money to buy items from Porkrind's Emporium (the Caravan Store on the map ) to buy. However, if you have difficulty defeating Goopy with the Peashooter (standard shot), the chaser will help you a lot. With the chaser, you do not have to worry about aiming. Projectiles are automatically sent to your target to reduce the damage. Especially the chaser makes the third phase a lot easier, because you do not have to be under the gravestone when shooting. You also have enough coins from the gate to buy the chaser.
If you play one of the two run and gun levels on Isle One, you can also find enough coins to buy a Charm. If life is a problem, you can receive the heart spell that adds a hit point to your health and only minimizes your damage. But the best spell for Goopy is the smoke bomb that makes Cuphead or Mugman invincible while dodging. Basically, you can be more aggressive if you fight Goopy with Smoke Bomb and break through all three phases of the creature without worrying so much about perfect evasion.
