The Phantom is to be the boss of floor 6 in New Game +. To unlock New Game + you first need to beat New Game, which consists of 4 randomized floors. The good news is that you can do all of this on the Easy difficulty, which provides more time per floor before Goblins come to kill you, as well as far more frequent hearts to refill your health.

This fight itself was pretty tough. The boss has 2 phases as far as I could tell:
- He starts off with some basic quick fireball attacks sent in your general direction, not too tough to dodge
- During this time he occasionally stops for a few seconds and then radiates small fast fireballs all around him. A bit harder to dodge but not too bad.
- Occasionally during the entire fight he'll spawn small things on the floor which are stationary but will damage you.

After you do 75% of his health he'll start phase 2, where he has 2 new attacks
- Spawning 4 or 5 small grubs to chase you. Easily dodged or killed.
- Sending his fists out. As long as you are moving in a circular motion around him they aren't too hard to doge. I didn't take any damage in phase 2 after getting hit by 3 or 4 fireballs in phase one.

Here is someone else's video of this fight for reference:

He has a lot of health but I managed to kill him on my first attempt.

My general strategy for this game:
- Play on Easy! The game is hard enough as it is.
- If you don't have the floor map, move to rooms that have multiple exits as you get to 'scout' rooms you are directly connected to. Ideally you find a map early each floor, but its entirely random.
- Always hit the Arcade Rooms (looks like a joystick and 2 buttons). They cost 10 coins to enter, but can easily provide 50+ coins and even if you lose its a free room without the possibility of health loss.
- Always aim for stores. Once there purchase stat increases whenever possible. Ignore other things unless you really need a health refill. I never bought gems or gauntlets personally.
- Try to avoid special rooms (mud pits, cemetary, and catacombs) unless you need the associated achievements. They are dark and easy to mess up in.
- Try to focus on killing ranged enemies when possible. They can ruin your day.
- Kill first, collect second. On easy you'll get plenty of food to stack x8 bonuses along the way. The only possible exception is stat upgrades. You really don't want to miss those as they are limited and highly beneficial.

Beyond that the only thing that really will help is playing the game and learning all the boss/enemy patterns. Good luck!
