Arcade Mode is probably the hardest achievement in the game besides the bit of grinding you need to do for gold. Arcade Mode has you start at Level 1 and with no upgrades on your characters and try to beat Level 6 (and then loop it all if you so desire for a higher score).

Upgrades appear during the level as a little circle with a crystal type object inside. It will dash around the level a little until stopping. You have a limited time to collect it before it disappears. Each one will advance your level once. While you would assume there is a maximum of 20 (like normal), you can actually go past that. Levels 21 through 25 give you the MK1000 and it's associated upgrades.

If you take a hit during the level, an upgrade will fall out of you and go around as if it's a fresh collectible. You have time to recollect it before it disappears though.

In terms of character, I think there are two legit options to play as - Jon or Erika. Jon has great damage output while Erika has some of the best mix of abilities. The gold she can get quickly and extra life is also beneficial. The only thing is that it takes a long to unlock her.

In terms of strategy, I went with the following:

- I chose Jon. His damage can make quick work of all the problems and overcrowding in Levels 4 and 5.
- You shouldn't need to use dynamite in Levels 1 through 3. I use a stopwatch on Level 3's boss occasionally, but that's about it.
- In Level 4, you will likely unlock Level 20 and possibly get into the MK1000 upgrades. Some of the later portions can get hectic. Waves 3 and 4 especially. You'll want to save the dynamite for this and Level 5 especially. If you're not spending gold, you might want to max out your dynamite before starting Level 5. Focus on getting gold throughout though as it can be invaluable to get more stuff as you get closer to the end. I tend to focus on Dynamite and Health. While the stopwatch is nice, it has a huge drawback:

The stopwatch stops the wave countdown during a wave. It is not based on enemies killed, but time elapsed. It can help you clear a screen of enemies, but it can also mean you have to play another refill of the screen. It works and doesn't a bit. A rough trade at times.

When you complete Level 6, you will unlock the achievement and start into a second run. You can just quit out of the mode after the achievement unlocks.
