Can't beat Bowser :(

I've tried to suck up his tail and his flame-breath. Didn't work. Then I tried to get him to jump on the platforms in the hope that he'll be electrocuted, but he just slides off when he jumps up. I can't think of anything else. I had him destroy all the pillars in the hopes that there'd be a fountain to extinguish his breath, but to no avail. I'm out of ideas on how to beat him.

You have to run under him when he jumps, then grab the ax.

You might want to mention what game you're playing when asking for help. Bowser is a boss in about half a million Nintendo games.

If this is what I am thinking of, my son grabs his tail and spins him then releases him into the electrodes 3 or 4 times. Good luck. If this is not what you are talking about I am sorry.

wait for him to toss the spiked balls out. Then run up and suck one up with the vacuum cleaner. you have to get close to the ball otherwise it does not attach. then when bowser runs toward you, expell the ball in his direction and it should knock his head off.

I'm not sure if this was supposed to be funny, but I still got a good chuckle from it

Hey, that's a damn_spoiler

Thanks! I've all but avoided any knowledge of the game's ending, I suspected Bowser was behind it, but I was hoping for a different end bos..
Thanks for wrecking the surprise.

That's not quite the truth. Keep playing. There is more to it than just Bowser. I tried to use spoiler tags in my thread.

Anyway, I put how I beat the final boss here. http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...hreadid=160826

You have to get your timing down on avoiding the ice and make sure to run away if he jumps.

Nothing much. Just the standard credits.

Spoiler:
Go to the gallery and look at the picture right next to the professor and it will show a house you built with your money and show your rank.

The Hidden mansion is the next one to play, but there are only minor differences from the first one.
