    Arrow C is the latest addictingly fun mobile game. It is easy to learn but you need time to master it. This guide will teach you how to handle some common situations you will face in Arrow C.

    In case you are still finding the download link, here it is:

    iOS

    Android

    The basic
    First you need to understand the rules. You have to eliminate all color blocks to complete a level. The challenge comes when you cannot directly hit a block with the same color as your ball, you lose a star. Basically you start with 3 stars, meaning that you have 3 chances before the game is over. Look at the following example, level 1 scenario, you start with a blinking ball. You can hit any block you want at the beginning.

    If I hit the pink block first, the ball will become pink. Here comes the challenge, if I hit the pink block with low speed, the ball will eliminate the pink block and will remain pink after that

    Under this circumstance, you will lose a star when you hit the green block because you cannot directly hit a block with different color from the ball.

    In order to avoid this, you have to hit the pink block with high speed, the ball will hit the pink block , bounce to the green block and become green

    In this way, you can eliminate the green block without losing any star and complete this level. This game is all about when to change color of the ball.

    Angle
    Here are some common angles you will use in the game, if you are not familiar with physics.

    Force
    Do not always shoot the ball at maximum speed. Sometimes you want the ball to stop at specific location, or stay with specific color. Try to control the force.

    Open your mind
    Look at the following example, you can see there are at least 3 ways to hit the block

    When you stuck on a particular level, try to think in other ways, including the hitting order and hitting angle. Sometimes it can help you to complete a level. Avoid taking risk and find a different route, like this

    Plan your move
    The most important thing in Arrow C is you need to prepare what happen next. What happen if you eliminate the last green block and your ball is still green? If you think about it you will avoid many simple mistakes.

    Common scenarios
    Here are some common scenarios

    Complete levels with 3 stars
    Try to complete all levels with 3 stars if possible. A diamond will be given for free if you complete a level with 3 stars for the first time. When you stuck on a level and do not have diamond left, try to complete the previous levels with 3 stars if you are not going to purchase diamonds.

    Conclusion
    After reading this guide you should have no problem passing the first 30 levels. Sometimes you need luck too. I may write another guide for twin balls if I have time. Love to see someone posting walkthrough videos for each level.

    Good game. I am enjoying it. Wrote a nice review for you. I'll try your anti hero game when I get home to wifi, sounds interesting.

    After playing the game more (I am in the lvl 40 range) I will say this...


    I don't like the hearts starts system. I would much rather pay three or four bucks for the game outright than not be able to play when I want.

    Thanks for reply. But the game is not made by me. I am just a fans.

    Ya I agree many people don't like the heart system but obviously it earns more money like Candy Crush
