You will understand why Glumstone the Giant stands on the 4th rank as soon as you enter the first phase of this fight. 

This phase comes with dual attacks as you will have to regularly dodge the beams or projectiles coming your way, along with a need to switch the land position continuously.

This is because during phase one of this fight, the land lies in a lava situation, or simply put, the land has a tendency to sink whenever you stand on it for a longer time.

6. The Howling Aces

The Howling Aces is not a very hard boss to defeat in Delicious last course. However, still difficult for a few of them out there.

Physically, The Howling Aces will not frighten you or seem difficult to fight or defeat. But do not underestimate the overall performance of The Howling Aces. 

This fight is staged on the top of the wings of the plane. Thus, this restricts much movement throughout the area. Make sure that you have to dodge all the projections in this limited area. 

The initial phases are easy and can be dealt with easily. However, for the final phase of this fight, the screen gets rotated, which becomes highly inconvenient and difficult to fight on.

Every time the screen rotates, you will have to fight from a whole new perspective which can be quite difficult.

8. The King’s Leap

The King’s Leap is simply a combination of different fights against different bosses, including the pawns, the knight, the bishop, the rook, and the Queen bosses.

Although you will have to fight these battles individually, the overall theme of these fights falls in the same category. 

The fight visuals of these fights are extraordinary and very creative for the users. The effects and bosses of these fights are easy to defeat yet can be annoying sometimes.

These bosses individually offer a lot to the gamers and can be highly creative in their attacking approach. However, defeating them does not require any extra set of skills.

The parry mechanics of these fights are the only difficult components you have to face, but, as a gamer, if you are efficient in parry mechanics as well, these bosses are easiest to defeat and conquer.

The theme of these fights and bosses match with each other, and hence, defeating a level is approximately the same.
