Conclusion

Boss battles are arenas for creative game design. Many modern games tend to fall back to pattern based challenges for boss battles. While these are satisfying, they are seldom unforgettable, and rarely facilitate extensive replay or stimulate the player’s imagination. Presenting puzzles and rewarding preparation can elevate boss battles into creative, intellectual and personalized endeavors that make a mark on the gamer.
