Mad Arrow Walkthrough

Mad Arrow is a strategy game based on Ancient Greece. This defense game features impressive two-dimensional graphics, an easy-to-use interface, simple controls, and three gameplay modes.

The objective of Mad Arrow is to defend your treasure from barbarian invaders. In order to accomplish this goal, you will have to place defenders to stop your enemies from reaching their goal. If all of your treasure is stolen, you will lose the level and have to restart it. If you manage to keep the barbarians at bay until the clock runs down to zero, you will advance to the next level. Hardcore mode features the same levels as the regular game, but enemies are more plentiful. Survival mode consists of one level where the objective is to survive as long as possible. This strategy game does not have a save feature, so you will have to beat it in one sitting.

In order to defend your treasure in Mad Arrow, you will have to place units. Select the icon of the type of unit that you wish to place, then place it on the screen by clicking. Units will automatically attack enemies as they come into range. Be advised that units cost money in this strategy game, and the only way to make money is to kill enemies!

Mad Arrow features both ranged units and melee units. Ranged units are great for killing enemies at a distance, but are horrible melee fighters. Melee fighters, on the other hand, can only attack enemies at close range, but can sustain more damage and hold their ground. A good formation to use in this strategy game is to put melee fighters in the front to hold enemies back, and place archers behind them to score the kills or soften up powerful enemies before they crash into your melee line. Beware that you cannot place units too close to each other or the barbarian spawn point.

Mad Arrow is a well-designed defense game that will keep you busy and entertained. To quote King Leonidas, "Give them nothing, but take from them, everything!"; a concept that works well in this strategy game.
