Boss Revenge

With Boss Revenge, you will be able to fight Bosses previously encountered, but with your current Simurgh powers.

  • Gradual unlock: After beating each Boss, they are unlocked in the Boss Revenge menu. In this challenge, you will enter each Boss Battle with a preset (Life / Weapon Upgrades / Time Powers) but have access to all current Athra Surges and Amulets at your disposal.
  • Pick your level of challenge: For each Boss, you can choose the difficulty you want to play them against: Rookie/Warrior/Hero/Immortal or No Hit. This choice is independent from the current game difficulty.
  • Prove your skills and beat your own records: A seal is displayed once you’ve beaten a Boss in a set difficulty. The look of the seal (Bronze/Silver/Gold) depends on your time.
Boss Rush

The greatest challenge awaits the bravest: the Boss Rush. This is an endgame challenge where you test your abilities and skills by defeating all the main bosses in a row. Two new outfits can be unlocked by beating this challenge at different difficulty levels.

  • Endgame challenge: The Rush gets unlocked after finishing the main story. In this challenge, you will enter with your current life/Amulets/Time Powers/Weapon Upgrades and Athra surges.
  • Fight all Bosses in order: The fights unroll in the same order as in the main story.
  • Pick your level of challenge: For each Rush, you can choose the difficulty you want to play against: Rookie/Warrior/Hero/Immortal or No Hit. This choice is independent from the current game difficulty.
  • Manage your resources: The amount of Life / Potions / Arrows or Athra gauge left is kept from one battle to the next. You’ll need to plan your rush, and use the possibility to change your Amulets & Athra Surges loadout between each fight wisely. Some Amulets are not active in Boss Rush to keep the experience balanced.
  • Prove your skills and beat your own records: A seal is displayed once you’ve beaten the complete Boss Rush in any difficulty, alongside the time taken to do so. Beating the challenge on a high difficulty setting also unlocks the seal for the lower difficulty ones. Theres a possibility there’s a secret seal…
