Your first thought is to take out your opponent quickly, so you command the WASPRING to attack at full speed.

WASPRING USES DRILL RUN!

It doesn't seem very effective! This hardened dishware boogie is less fragile than it appears.

Unfortunately, your move has given the PLATELET an opportunity to counterattack.

Clapping its two halves together at fantastic speeds produces a shockwave that knocks your WASPRING back and seems to daze it. You can't afford to take another hit like that... you'd better make the next attack count!

Taking advantage of the distance put between your boogie and its opponent by PLATELET's counterattack, you command the WASPRING to prepare for a slower but more powerful attack... one that will hopefully pierce its hardened hide better than the quick DRILL RUN attack.

WASPRING USES WINDUP STING!

WASPRING is winding up... and will execute the attack as soon as it's ready.

But the PLATELET is not sitting idly by... looks like it's changed its focus to you!

PLATELETs rely on sonic damage and high defences to deter foes, you can actually take a hit from them ok with your current armour.

RE: Sack Boogies
...It's a PLATELET. It's a low-power, weakling of a sackboogie. You are in quality armor designed to protect from sackboogie attacks.
It's scarcely more threatening than a keuriglett, and at least those can scald their target if desperate enough.
One lone PLATLET really can't do much more than harmlessly smack into your visor, can it?
Well, it can obstruct your vision, for starters. Not to mention it probably has friends. And, uh. That would be considerably more troublesome.
Just grab it and hold it in place until it calms down or something.
Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Not for the first time, you find yourself wishing you could just smack a boogie. It doesn't look that big or that dangerous.

But you've seen what happens when a Sack Master forgets to keep their distance; your prosthetic leg is a constant reminder. The only thing that can harm a Sack Boogie is another Sack Boogie, but that doesn't mean they can't hurt you.

That said, if this Boogie's opening move is any indication of its attack repertoire, instead of up close and personal fisticuffs it uses sonic attacks at range.

As long as it doesn't umbrificate through your armor before doing that, you reckon that you'll be able to take a hit without injury.

You decide to stand your ground to buy your WASPRING some time as the PLATELET unleashes another attack.

PLATELET USES CLAPP SCHLAPP!

The force knocks you off your cycle and sends you tumbling to the ground. Through blurry vision and the coppery taste of blood you can sense that you've managed to maintain your grip on the extra Boogie Sack.

You can feel your arms and legs and you decide that nothing's too broken. But you don't want to take another hit like that.

Fortunately, your WASPRING is ready to re-engage!

WASPRING USES WINDUP STING! It bursts forward through the air, uncoiling violently while spinning like a drill.

DIRECT HIT

Excellent! The PLATELET is incapacitated.

Is that BOWLDOZER coming back? Shouldn't it be farther away?
