The monster is always pushing the players away from him towards the spiky rocks in an attempt to hurt the player. It's necessary to paddle in the cycle trainer to overcome this force. The faster a player paddle the closer he gets to the boss.

All players are in the same lake working together to overcome the monster. Its possible to communicate with other players through quick emoticons as well as pass the missile if needed.
