Ah, the current boss I'm facing in Super Metroid, only real complaint I have about Phantoon is that I can't access the save station before his room due the sucker leaching all of the power in the wrecked ship So I always have to hike all the way to him from Crateria every single time *grumbles* He's been fun to fight though, so at least there's that.
I just fought him yesterday, and I all but forgot about how that one went. The fact that you only have a second to hit him once in a while makes it a bit frustrating. Half my time was spent rolling to each corner to dodge the circular flame attack, and the other half was spent wondering when exactly he planned on opening his eye.
Mhm, I've had more trouble figuring out how to beat Phantoon than I have any of the others so far, do Power Bombs work on him, or just make Phantoon angry like Crocomire and otherwise have no affect on him? ...'cause if the Power Bombs are superior to the Super Missiles in terms of damage, then I just might try that next time I go play the game.
