    • Strawberries: These will also be moving in a straight line, however, they will be coming diagonally from the right side.
    • Magic cookies: These magic cookies will come in the form of bunnies hopping from one side to the other. The height of their jump will vary if you’re standing close to them their jump will be short and if you’re not too close their jump will be higher. You can easily shoot to destroy them.

    The arena will now be changed totally in the second phase, in this phase you will have four salt shakers in each corner of the screen, these salt shakers will sneeze at you and throw a projectile at you which will be moving in a straight line, so make sure you dodge those. But do make sure that you collect the pink ones so you can use your special attack.

    Moreover, keep on shooting at these salt shakers and after you’ve done enough damage they will hit the face of the boss in the background. You will have to hit the boss around 10 times in order to make it to the next phase.

    The third hurdle is the flame that you face in the first phase, however this time it is on the ground which will jump from time to time and then come back to the ground. You can avoid this by simply moving out of its way and avoiding jumping over it while it’s on the ground.

However, the real challenge is the two snowmen jumping from one side to the other. Make sure that you just don’t let it crush you and move out of the way from where it’s landing.
