Help on Mother Brain!
« on: April 30, 2012, 08:49:11 pm »

I know it's been like 5 years since IWBTG was made, but I STILL cannot get past the mother brain!
I've only been able to kill it once, and that was by PURE luck!

Seriously, how the HELL do you get past the mother brain?!?!? >:(

Is there a strategy, or do you just have to get lucky?

The way I killed Mother Brain was kind of a strategy but it mainly depended on my reaction, timing and skill to avoid all of the killing ringy things...

So well, what I did was just to wait here, jump shoot jump, rings come at me, I quickly change my position to a "safe" one, and keep shooting as fast as I can, and when the rings come at me again, I repeat the action... Until I kill it.

There is a pattern. It took me a bit but I'm sure if you look on youtube you'll see some people that are really slick at it.
It's like, shoot, shoot, shoot, smash, wait for bullet. Just down wait for O. Jump to O-maker then to ledge, shoot, shoot, shoot, smash. Wait for bullet, jump though, smash next one (I literally take my right hand off the arrows to mash the Z as IWBTG was killing my left hand). Then you just shoot across to next wall and at the last moment as Os close in you double jump down to ledge and then up to the wall and shoot more. Then as they get close go back down to same ledge and back and shoot more. Repeat.
I got to a point where I could get to the last room and shoot mother brain a bunch of times everytime but I always had trouble keeping dodging the Os in the last room while shooting. I also don't think I can shoot anywhere near fast enough to do it well. Ugh, then there's the escape after it with no saves :/.
Check on Youtube as I don't really think the above will be all that helpful.
Remember that there's no randomness to mother brain. If you do the exact same thing each time the same things will happen. So just try to stand in the same place each time they shoot etc. Follow a pattern. Win. Hopefully.

I usually like using something like spammorama (Auto-fire program) and cheat engines speedhack to beat mother brain.
