Arrow of Timelessness

Awesome game

Protips: read only if you're stuck or can't figure it out

Lightning+Explosive (max both to 3)= best crowd clearing attack in the game. Will obliterate everything given your aim is semi-decent. The reason this is the best is because on impact it, even if it doesn't kill the target, it'll obliterate it's "parts" and make it freefall to it's own doom. Not to mention the lightning arcs to nearby targets

Get the shields, they have the same effect as extending your health bar

Pierce+Homing (both lvl 3): This is the ultimate spam. Homing isn't worth it until level 3, but pierce combos well with almost anything. Once u get H3/P3, spam it. When I say spam it I mean click as rapidly as you can to get those arrows into the air. No aiming required, as long as your arrow is somewhat going toward an enemy's direction the arrow will fly toward them and decimate their parts.

Use Pierce+Homing spam to accumulate 20 arrows on screen at once (it's possible just keep spamming). Also the pierce/homing can kill the final boss in under 20 seconds. The arrows will pass through the boss hitting him multiple times and your spam will accumulate arrows in the air while the boss is teleporting.

It's so addicting! Anyway, combine the level 3 Lightning Arrows with the level 3 Explosive Arrows and every shot destroys any enemy (excepting for bosses). Add the second defensive power for a burst.

Lovely game

I can't descrive how great this game is. Great music, fun concept, challenging, medals! Hell I hope there's a sequal coming up soon

Protip: ABout the dinosaur hunter. All I'm going to say is dinos are older. I think you might find a fully upgraded explosive and fully upgraded time arrow to be benefical. Especially the upgraded time arrow. Also I would stay in the first level. Maks dino hunting a lot easier.

Yay - got all medals

Very arty with very good music. This game has on of the best atmospheres I encountered. It's all so cute. The gameplay however, could be better. As soon as you get the shield, the game becomes very easy. And if you go for homing arrow, all you got do do is click at the screen - without even aiming. Also, as some have mentioned before me; The more expensive arrows are mostly useless.
I'll still give it a 10, because its superior to most games on NG.
