One of the best tips I can give is to stand at the edges of the screens and trick the dumbass cavemen to walk off the edges. Helps out a lot when there are tons of cavemen.
-If you see a pineapple, make a beeline for it. Then snack on those cavemen. As soon as you eat three or four, they'll start being worth 80,000 (?) points a bite, making for major points!
-Remember your dinosaur doesn't automatically stop walking, so keep an eye on him, otherwise you could wind up walking off the edge of the screen or into the hungry clutches of a caveman.
-It takes two punches to knock a caveman out, but it's worth it.
-Avoid mushrooms like the plague! They only slow you down.
