Jenocres – did I just get 2-shot by the FIRE? *off to grind until he becomes cakewalk*
Nyghtilger – lol did not even take damage
Vagullion – Y U NO APPEAR AND LET ME HIT YOU!? Oh, and goddamed bats.
Pictimos – Easy
Khonsclard – Slightly less easy
Yogleks & Omulgun – Dem stupid crystals…
Dark Fact – *rage in all caps* The danmaku here is DO NOT WANT
Velagunder – Why is ramming into him not working!? …wait, what’s this about a FIRE MAGIC I hear?
Tyalmath – Died a couple times until I get used to its attack pattern. Standard Ys difficulty for me.
Gelaldy – FUUUUUUU I keep accidentally running to the entrance and getting myself stuck in narrow hallway
Druegar – T’was alright…easy danmaku…
Zava – BEST. BOSS. IN. THE. ENTIRE. GAME. SUPER. FUN. DANMAKU.
Dalles – I GET TO RAM INTO BOSSES AGAIN!
Darm – equip Elixir, use shield magic, I GET LIKE 4 HP BARS. Dodging? Tactics? What are those?
The bosses were VERY varied in terms of difficulty in Ys I. Ys II was a lot better in terms of balance, and had the more fun boss designs. I guess I was the harder game overall, since it required more precision and you could used items in boss fights in Ys II (on Normal, at least). Ys II’s item usage didn’t make it TOO easy though, since you pretty much stick with the 3 herbs until the end. I wouldn’t want to replay Ys I, but Ys II is probably worth a replay on hard (And beat Darm without Elixir…). Also, I freaking love my fire magic. I like long range attacks.
