How to survive Lord Vensor the 3rd in Challenge Mode? Rage of the Gladiator Battle!

Can you survive all his magic acts?

Coffee Beans
     Magicians never reveal their secrets? Well, at least according to Lord Vensor the 3rd. Over the last 2 years, I have uploaded several boss battle videos from Rage of the Gladiator, and just last month a comment popped up on one of my older videos.
     What was the comment? It was a request asking if I would upload a video of a battle against Lord Vensor the 3rd. For clarification on the question, I asked “From the ‘Challenge Mode’ or the first time you face him?”, and Challenge Mode was the battle they were looking for. I checked some of my older video files from the game, and while I had a Lord Vensor the 3rd battle recorded, it was from the normal mode.
     I fired up Rage of the Gladiator a few nights ago, and decided to pay Lord Vensor the 3rd another visit in the arena, and check out his assortment of illusions. How did the battle go, watch the video below for a full Lord Vensor the 3rd Challenge Mode battle to find out!

     Are there any hints, or tips, I have to help you survive Lord Vensor the 3rd’s assortment of illusions in Challenge Mode, perhaps a little more easily? Brew yourself some coffee, and read the hint/tip I have below with an image, that should give you help for learning how to more easily avoid his “magical” laser show.

     WARNING, the hints/tips I provide are all game-play based, and not Skill Tree based, so if you want to learn how to detect his laser attacks from trial and error and playing against him repeatedly, you might want to skip this section.

The Brew
     Lord Vensor the 3rd has many different “tricks” in his arsenal, as any practicing magician should. Lord Vensor’s tricks though, as colorful as some are, can be really difficult to figure out if you aren’t a practicing magician; or if you don’t feel like getting pummeled by him repeatedly.

     The first magic trick that can be challenging, and probably requires you to pay attention the most, is Lord Vensor’s colorful magical laser sphere attack. He will make a red, green, and blue sphere appear, and then the spheres discharge a laser show. Each sphere can shoot out a red, blue, or green laser, which is damaging and DEADLY if you get hit by enough of them. So, how do you avoid the lasers, and how do you know which ones are coming next? Click the image below to see the strategy:

     As the image above shows/states, the key to surviving Lord Vensor’s laser attack is to start off by dodging. Throughout the entire battle in Challenge Mode, Lord Vensor has meteors raining down from the left and right, which can hurt you. The key with the meteors during the laser show attack is to try and be aware of which side a meteor is falling, and dodge to the opposite side.
     Also, it is very important to note the color of the first laser attack. The color of the first laser attack will provide you with the only clue as to what your next defensive move should be, whether that is dodging, blocking, or jumping.

     I don’t want to spoil too much of the battle for you, but if you have any questions about which colored lasers require which defensive counter, or any other questions, feel free to email me at Scott(@)CoffeeWithGames.com.
     If you have not played Rage of the Gladiator, but are perhaps interested in it, you can download a free demo of the game through the Nintendo Shop Channel.

Questions
     If you own Rage of the Gladiator, how far have you made it in the game, and were you able to obtain the best “Rank” in each battle?
     If you own Rage of the Gladiator, but have not completed the Challenge Mode, is it because you got stuck on a boss battle? If so, which one?
