Sure, Jibba.


I've already mentioned the hearts in my first post on here. Those add up to quite a few points, so keep your eyes out for those bonus stage balloons.


It helps to stay right next to a line with the enemies. You should notice that the game has vertical lines on the stages. I noticed that the line represents as far as enemies in that vicinity will venture. Meaning that if you stay a tad to the right of a line, the enemy that is threatening you on the left side of the line shouldn't be able to get to you. You don't wanna stay right on the line or enemies on both sides will be able to hit you. Just stay either a bit to the left or right. With practice, players should begin to feel more comfortable and safe with this strategy. I find this to be one of the smarter ways to obtain points. Seeing as how the enemies in a certain block continually roll from one side to the other, you can slow down and more easily hit the enemies in front of you. It seems to be easier than running all over the place trying to cover more ground and kill more enemies. That can get chaotic. I hope this makes sense to others here. Sometimes, I have trouble explaining things.


Another tip for you guys is to max out the power-ups the game gives you from bouncing into pillars. You can keep collecting missiles and "juice"(?) for additional points if you bounce horizontally to the next pillar. You should be able to do this up to 4 times for missiles and juice in each power-up section. Try it out at the beginning of the game and you'll see what I mean. I think you earn 500 points each time.


Also, I believe that you earn points for each section of the boss that you destroy aside from the head. So, try to kill each part of it before the head explodes.
