Definitely one of the most addictive and fun games I've ever played. By favorite combination was Full Powered Lightning/Full Powered Explosion. I liked the concept behind the Time Arrow and its reversing effect! But if hes using time arrows, does that mean he used the Arrow Of Time that this whole game is based upon? Should've elaborated. You can basically play through this whole game using only Lightning/Explosion. The only defensive upgrades I found really necessary were the Bubble Shield and Defense orb. The extra turrets were pretty hard to control. To sum up: I love this game, can't wait for a sequel (Please?)

I kind of liked the vagueness of the Arrow of Time itself, but I know what you mean. For me, I think the Arrow of Time is like an artifact that gives his fortress power and allows it to exist in all time periods. It isn't really a weapon that he can use.

Another bug simiar to the fire pause one

When testing the fire pause bug on the boss level, I found that the boss can still attack while you are paused. I ended up dying because of that bug. Anyways, this game is pretty epic, even though it is pretty difficult at later levels. The time arrows are pretty helpful when pared with a fully powered piercing arrow, especially in the future where they can do some serious damage.

As EzB said, the fire/pause bug is real, i tested it myself and it worked perfectly... although it was boring that way... lightning + piercing arrow ftw? But yeah, once you get that bug sorted out the game is literally flawless. Great game guys 5/5!

Great game

I love this game. But you can't really expect nothing less from The super-Flash-Bros.
The medals are working fine for those who keep saying they aren't I have all 5.

The-Super-Flash-Bros responds:

Well done on getting all the medals!! The list should go up on the game page soon, but yeah. Congrats!

Found a pretty big bug

Loved the game but....
If you hit anything with a fire arrow then open up the pause screen the fire damage is still applied and the enemy will actually die while the pause screen is still up
