Roving Beefsteak Tomato = 5
Killer Cherry Tomato = 50
Brick-Eater = 5
Capturing a Brick = 10
Placing a Brick in Wall = 20
Completing first Wall = 1000
Completing second Wall = 2000
Completing third Wall = 3000
HINTS FROM JOHN RUSSELL...
Brick-Eathers always grow on the wall containing the most Bricks. If there are two walls which have the same number of Bricks, the Brick-Eater will grown on the upper wall.
Don't stay at the top of the game screen as it is easier to capture Bricks when you are further away from them. Remember, it only takes ONE shot from the Tomato Sprayer to capture a Brick. The NEXT shot fired will release it. Although you must fire single shots to capture and release Bricks, you'll have better luck blasting Tomatoes with the fire button held down. Practice switching from one method to the other.
