Deimos’s Thoughts
The Gnome Boar Rider boss is quite hard. It took a while for Deimos to figure out on his own that you need pick up his spears and throw it at him in order to stun him.

Deimos Asks
Have you beaten Larry And The Gnomes yet? What difficulty? Had fun? Yes? No? Why?

This makes sure even a novice player can finish the game on any difficulty as long as they keep trying. You don’t see this in a lot of games like this one and I think it really makes it stand out.

    here’s your cameo guide; there are eight to get and one will spawn randomly on one of three pedestals on the green goo at the beginning of Act 3, lvl 2. for easy access to the medals, you can just go find the one that spawned, pick it up, then go back to the main menu and go back into your saved game, and another, hopefully different, sword will have spawned.
    these are the 8 cameo swords:

    Keyblade – slow, 40 dmg (Kingdom Hearts)
    Chaos Blade – fast, 30 dmg (God of War)
    Master Sword – slow, 40 dmg (Legend of Zelda)
    Sting – fast, 30 dmg (Lord of the Rings)
    Sword of Ancients – slow, 40 dmg (Paladin)
    Buster Sword – slow, 40 dmg (Final Fantasy)
    Frostmourne – slow, 30 dmg, 2s ice (Warcraft)

    I have a better way to beat the boar boss. First, stay at the top of the screen.once the ground vibrates, go to the bottom of the screen and walk to the right or left. Either one will do but don’t go too far. He will throw a spear instead of hitting you with the boar because you are on the other side of the screen. And the chances of you getting hit is low because you are walking. Repeat until you have three spears on one side. Go to that side and wait for the earth shake. Pick up a spear and throw it at the first sign of movement. Pick up your other weapon and attack the boar (I reccomend picking up a poison wand before you go to this battle since it will do damage over time). Then jump up when the boar has reached it’s full height when it tries to trample you, don’t worry you will get a feel for this once you get hit by it once. After that, go back to the spears and repeat until he is dead. If you got unlucky, hit the bushes for health like it was said in the walkthrough above. Also, on the slimy goo thing, sometimes there are powerful swords on the platforms. If the damage is 40, don’t use it. If the damage is 30, use it. If the damage is 30 but it says 2s below it, don’t use it. And you do not necessarily have to bounce on the trampolines or step on the platforms, you just have to grab onto the ropes. Dude, I am not saying your walkthrough sucks, I am just saying the better way to do it.

    Hey, nice guide deimo!
    Helped me get through the boar boss..

    Beginners: for the weapons:
    If there is two numbers for the damages on a weapon: green is for poison damage, blue for the number of seconds the ennemy will be stunned, red is for additional damage (not 100% sure for this last one)
    Big damage but slow weapons are not the best ones, you want to hit the gnomes before they can hit you, so the fastest are best.

    said the following:

    After an hour, even knowing that I need to hit him with the spear, I have finally figured out the trick to the boar boss. It’s a simple set of moves requiring an understanding of two aspects of how the boss works, and one bit of understanding how weapons work.

    Firstly, it requires a good look at hit boxes. I wanted to know how not to get hit. It’s actually a fair bit deceptive. The answer is, almost anywhere BELOW the boar on the screen will get you hit, and almost anywhere ABOVE the boar on the screen will get you through unscathed. This leads me to believe that jumping over the boar, even sprint jumping, is risky… because while jumping will raise you on the screen, it’ll also lower you back down, making it likely that you’ll get hit.

    The next trick to understand is that the boar rider won’t throw his spear if he thinks he can run you over instead. He doesn’t even need to actually be able run you over, he just needs to THINK he can. When does he think you can? When you are in front of or below him for the majority of his run (I’m convinced there’s a trigger “decision moment” but I’m not sure exactly when it is). So even if you do successfully jump over him, chances are he won’t throw his spear anyway because he thought he could hit you. Sometimes you CAN time your jump so perfectly he’ll throw anyway, but it’s a crapshoot in my opinion, with the odds firmly against you.

    The third aspect to understand is how weapons work. This should be the easiest part, but ironically took me a while to get down pat. Basically, when you exchange weapons, you drop your current weapon right there. So basically, if you want to actually damage the boar with more than your FISTS, you need to stop where you are when you pick up the spear, otherwise you’re not going to be able to get to your sword in time. (I personally favor the 11-power sabers).

    So, with these facts in mind, here’s the trick:


    Step 1) Start in the most vulnerable position, namely, the bottom of the screen– preferably at the opposite left/right side that the boar is coming from.

    Step 2) Wait for the rumble. Wait a couple seconds while it’s rumbling to get the boar to commit to your location (you’ll need to learn the timing yourself, but it’s easy to pick up) and then simply walk to the top of the screen. Don’t jump, don’t run, just walk straight up.

    Step 3) If you’ve done it right, the boar will pass right below you, AND he’ll have thrown his spear, AND since he’s so close he won’t damage you with it either.

    Step 4) Pick up the spear, and face the direction the boar just went. You may find yourself fairly close to the edge, so you won’t have much reaction time– possibly you’ll want to dodge nearer the middle of the stage for this reason.

    Step 5) Without moving away from your sword, throw the spear at the boar the SECOND he appears on screen.

    Step 6) Pick up your sword and start wailing on him.

    Step 7) Walk quickly back down to the bottom. If everything went according to plan, you should be able to repeat your steps EXACTLY, even staying on the same left/right side of the stage. If not, you might find at some point you’ll need to switch, but fortunately, you should have plenty of stamina to run over!

    If you make mistakes, and given the precise timing needed throughout, I won’t be surprised if you make a mistake a time or two, see if you can find a spare moment to smack the bush on either the left or right side of the stage a bunch of times, and eventually a red orb’ll come out.

    Now you just have to be consistent and repetitive. He’s got WAY too much health, so you’ll have to repeat these steps some dozen times or so, but it can be done. Take the chance out of it by not relying on jumping, and you can focus on refining your timing otherwise! Skill and practice will then win out, I promise you.
