• Don't waste Shockwaves. Use them only when you have to.

• Use jump ramps to destroy flying enemies.

• Warp From Level 12 to 18: Start at level 11 (Labyrinth) and complete it. On level 12 (Coathanger) go right and catch the boost and continue going right. You will fly up and then continue and cross the finish line. You will be warped to level 18!
