The Great Abyss is the 24th stage in Into the Future.
|Into the Future - Stage 24|
In Chapter 1, the boss is an I.M.Phace and in Chapter 2, the boss is Galactic Overseer Nyandam. In Chapter 3, the boss is Bun Bun Symbiote. The Great Abyss levels can be very annoying, especially in Chapter 1, where it is much harder than many previous (and upcoming) "Into The Future" stages. The bosses in these levels are pretty much alien versions of the Empire Of Cats moon bosses.
After you hit the enemy castle, a Helmut Krabbe will be spawned. It's not too much of a threat, but don't underestimate it.
Once the enemy castle gets down to about 180k HP, the boss (I.M. Phace) will be spawned. The I.M. Phace has a chance to stop your cat units, and a long range as well (longer than Gross Cat ). Try and use longer ranged cats such as Dragon Cat and Gacha Cats (Helps if they're Anti-Floating or Anti-Alien)
Once the I.M. Phace is dead, just destroy the enemy castle, as not much can stop you.
Chapter 2 is much different. At the beginning, Galactic Overseer Nyandam will be spawned. Just like his variants, he moves very slowly, giving you a lot of time to get money.
Galactic Overseer Nyandam's range is 20 less than Tecoluga's, which is very long. Plus, Cyberhorns keep smashing your front line, which is worse. It is recommended to use Cats with a high range such as Super Galaxy Cosmo or Nerd Cat while also slowing down the movement of the Cyberhorns by using Anti-Alien Cats.
If you have any cats that can stop Alien Enemies, use them. They will be very helpful The best strategy is just to power through the Cyberhorns, and destroy Galactic Overseer Nyandam as quick as you can until more Cyberhorns are spawned.
Cat Line-up: Crazed Cat, Crazed Tank Cat, Hip Hop Cat, Paris Cat, Bahamut Cat, Dragon King Cat, Jamiera Cat and most importantly, Castaway Cat. Better fill up the rest with uber rares or anti-aliens. Start off by rapidly summoning meat shields and a few Paris Cats and Hip Hop Cat. Those guys will finish the Mistress Celeboodle for you. When Cyberhorn(s) come(s), get Castaway cat to stop it(them). Jamiera Cat can survive a shot from Galactic Overseer Nyandam and it is possible to knock back Nyandam before he finishes his attack. If you are lucky, Castaway Cat will freeze the Nyandam and then your cats can kill it easily.
This starts off very similar to Chapter 1, just Alien peons. There are also some Kroxos, but due to the alien enemy buff + the massive additional buff that ITF Ch. 3 gives to Aliens, they can do enormous damage.
Once you damage the base enough, Bun Bun Symbiote spawns.
He has a chance to do a Lv. 1 Shockwave. Still use meatshields, because the shockwave chance is only 5%. However, when it happens, it hits hard.
This battle is extremely difficult without Anti-Alien/Floating Ubers. (Arguably enough, it's extremely hard to GET to this point without them). Stacking up Shaman Cat can freeze Bun Bun Symbiote for almost all the battle, but just be sure to protect them.
A Cyberhorn or two might spawn during the boss battle, but they're not much of a threat.
