TIPS AND TRICKS

• Try to group the monsters together, and lure as many as possible at once behind you on to a carpet for big points (10,000 for 4 monsters).

• Remember the positions of the four bonus items when the level starts, as collecting all the items will stun all existing monsters - and killing all the monsters when stunned is worth a lot of points.

• At the early parts of each level, concentrate on killing the monsters singly, clearing a path into their territory and waiting around a corner to stun them.

• When the monsters start homing in on you, move to a large safe area away from them and then make your way to a carpet, waiting for as many monsters as you can.
