hell boss (spoilers)

The boss for the hell level is perhaps the most ingenious boss monsters I have ever seen. Fighting the very deaths that got you to the boss is simply amazing. A+, 5 stars, bravo, and well done. anyone else in awe of this creature?

It was creative and a great art direction, but I wasn't a huge fan of how the boss fight went. The boss fights have been lackluster for me altogether though.

Here's what I wondered when I saw the hell boss. If one managed to never die up until that point, who would the boss be?

@LunarAura:  Whoa, for real, what are the possibilities? I can't even think of one!

What? the boss changes depending on your number of deaths so far in the game?  
 

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?!?!

I don't get it. How does it work? I thought he was pretty bad, you just had to learn his routine, which didn't seem very creative for that game.

Its creative in design, made of your own failure, not so much in its routine. I want people to remember this topic for what it could have been not what it was

Oh I finally see what you are trying to say here...because you fight a monster that literally is all your deaths in hell. Well, ok...

No it does not. It's just a creative idea, that the boss is made up of all of your deaths, not that it literally is.

It's not that creative at all really, it's been done before quite a few times, like almost everything in Super Meat Boy.  It's not even like the boss actually changes depending on your deaths or anything so it's really less impressive than other games which have done this in the past.

The Hell boss was pretty terrible IMO.

Great in concept but it was a pretty shitty boss =/.
