Im playing it right now and wonder if its possible to max out all arrows?

you can replay levels once you beat it.

Now I have to say,

Arrows:

Fire: causes damage over time, burning effects, enemies still can shoot stuff at you.

Ice: freezes enemies and the start to fall, they can still shoot stuff however.

Lightning: lightning arcs through towards enemies when they are close enough.

Piercing: will go through multiple enemies, until the arrow is stuck fast into the hull of something.

Explosion: massive damage.

Homing: makes the missiles gravitate towards enemies.

Traitor: turns enemies against themselves, they have a purple halo around them, they will generally float around doing nothing though.

Teleport: will teleport enemies to the off of the screen, unless the arrow kills them.

Lead: a stronger arrow.

Gravity: when hit will make enemies stick with each other and fall towards the ground.

Helium: will make enemies lighter and allow you to do more damage.

Time: will freeze enemies completely.

thats about it.

Fire+Ice = most usless btw... most useless...

I thought helium arrows improved accuracy by keeping the arrow straight, and the time arrow will send the unit back by one era per arrow shot.

Interestingly enough, killing a unit in the starter age with time arrow creates a dinosaur. But yeah, Homing + Explosion DOMINATED the game.

Or is there some way to have infinite levels to test combinations? I guess not. Would be cool though.

Something like a survival mode where you can use everything you bought so far would kick a**.

Beat the game and you'll unlock free play mode where you can play any level you want and still max out arrows.

if you want something unique, one of the best choice would be:

homing + piercing

so cool, shoot an arrow at an enemy, and it circles around the enemy hitting it again and again. and if it kills the enemy, it goes for more until its gone... but i dont know which is better, homing + piercing or homing + explosive...

for me, i definitely love homing + piercing...

by the way, lead arrows forces vehicles on the ground, i just maxed it (thought i could do a one hit one kill)... it doesn't increase damage... then i wonder what gravity arrows do?

time arrows stop movement, and helium arrows keep em straight. sorry got mixed up.

hmm my lead arrows must have been faulty...  The gravity arrows draw the vehicles together.

edit:

actually helium arrows, prevent enemies from falling they make them rise.

time arrows: send the monster 1 era backwards.

lead arrows: make them fall towards the ground.

Sorry... I turned off animation >.> because my computer started to get laggy....
