A blue monarch summons ice blocks and then leaps onto them, shattering them into icicles.

Overview

My first ever boss fight! A 1-v-1 against a frosty monarch. It was originally intended to be one of a sequence of three boss fights, each one a member of elemental royalty.

I do appreciate the mechanics of the fight. The boss summons ice blocks that shatter into icicles when the boss leaps on them, so being near them is a bit of a liability. But midway through the fight the boss performs a move that can only be dodged if you're standing on an ice block. Neat. Cute.
