Tips

Back to top

Beating the final boss almost instantly

There is a way to make the final boss in Career mode drop almost instantly when you are battling him. If your first power-up is a whammy bar, use it after your solo and your opponent will go into a long string of notes very quickly. If you use your whammy power-up there, it will make your opponent fall into the red almost instantaneously.
