Just after entering the boss room you have to hurry up to get behind the boss, completly ignoring the tank while doing so helps. Then turn around and fire all your missiles and the beam at its weak point. You should try to find as much missiles as you're able to get at this point before attacking the boss.
I have tried that. If I stay long enough to do any real damage I get crushed, and I never get another chance. No matter what I do.
The point is he has this huge room, and he never uses any of it. For all intents and purposes, he's a slow-firing turret, with a vulnerable point embedded in the wall behind him. (And I don't see the point of his mines: He never lays them anywhere I can fly. Heck, I've tried getting him to damage himself with them, but it was worthless.) If you don't destroy him within 1 second of entering the boss room, (and I'm not sure that is possible from what I've seen) you are stuck helpess, unable to ever try again. I can survive indefinately in that room, but eventually I let myself get killed just to end the boredom.
I tried killing him a half dozen times. I've only actually managed to damage him once or twice. At this point, I'm waiting for an update before playing again. I can roam at will through the rest of the area open to me, but I consider him unkillable. For the moment, this game is therefore not worth playing. I may try some custom levels.
