All Final Bosses Ranked & more

Recommended Posts

I don't wanna spam the forum with links to my website, but I am proud of some of the articles I've written this month because I have been putting these off for 15 years or so. I hope you enjoy these, and I'd like to hear your feedback.

You didn't think that the Evil Magician at the end of Crossbow was good enough for this list? I still find it to be a pretty impressive final boss. Now if you know exact where the place the crosshairs just before he comes active, then he is also very easy to kill but still?

Had fun reading them! I actually own all the pal grey box carts which is quite a few so there's a lot of stuff I recognise, so had fun reading it.

Yeah...where is the love for Evil Magician? :P :-D

 

Quick(est) path to him*...

4 STEPS:
Green Path (Desert)
Blue Path (Cave/Cavern)
Blue Path (Castle Drawbridge Entrance)
Red Path (Inside Castle Hall)

 

Or take one of the two longest routes...

8 STEPS [COVERS ALL AREAS - NO REPEATS]:
Green Path (Desert)
Green Path (Village/Town)
Red Path (Volcano)
Red Path (River/Lake)
Green Path (Jungle)
Blue Path (Cave/Cavern}
Blue Path (Castle Drawbridge Entrance)
Red Path (Inside Castle Hall)

 

8 STEPS [COVERS ALL AREAS - NO REPEATS]:
Red Path (Village/Town)
Red Path (Volcano)
Red Path (River/Lake)
Green Path (Jungle)
Green Path (Desert)
Blue Path (Cave/Cavern)
Blue Path (Castle Drawbridge Entrance)
Red Path (Inside Castle Hall)

 

...Perhaps he deserves another consideration, @Cousin Vinnie[?]

*Need to get passed some inside castle hall obstacles to 'drop in' on him.

I thought about including this weird a-hole, but I wanted to limit the article to Final Bosses of games that could be beaten.

That's being said, I may add the Bronx Bomber... as easy as it is to get to him and kick his head in.

But more importantly.... "Drugs, Joe?"

For Choplifter!, there is not much else from what you mention... 

 

image.png.e8d70c6ad219654eb4c41b07a672cd52.png

 

...but there is a "Congratulations!" message. 

Feel free to use the below capture instead of the incomplete playthrough game over of a graphical hack version:

I believe you only get that message if you manage to rescue all 64 hostages correct? I know I was able to actually do this a few times back in the day, but I doubt I could pull it off today.

Thanks! I fixed it............... very strange that I didn't even notice that graphical hack.

Funny.  On your website you rave about Ricky Vicky, but it's not in your Top 10....

R & V, all hype?   I understand hype, given the silly season we just went through.

I haven't officially reviewed it yet. When I do, it will compete with Crystal Quest for the top spot of best homebrew and best overall game. So... it will be #1 or #2 ... maybe #3.... still trying to get a better grasp of it before I do the review.

Also, after your suggestions, I added Bronx Bomber and the Evil Magician to the list of Final Bosses Ranked. Check out where they landed here: www.Atari7800Forever.com/finalbosses.html 

IF YOU DARE
