I discovered a couple of things last night specifically looking for tricks...

 

Using jump to climb a ladder is slightly faster than climbing (jump is the same speed as running horizontally though).

 

You CAN jump over the worms that are moving the same direction as you, but you need to be pixel perfect.

 

Level four seems to have two speed-ups -- one is if you time the run correctly, you can jump over the first bird when you're coming back to the right by using the top of the ladder to get a little extra height. If you jump early, you can do it without stopping. People might already be doing that, I always ducked back down the ladder. ;)

 

There's also a bug - you can jump off the top of the second ladder and land on the platform above it. This lets you skip running all the way to the left and back again. You can also run across the two-cell gaps on that top row without jumping. (I guess that's two bugs ;) ).

 

I can't do any of this consistently enough for a run yet though....

​Another bug (or feature) is that those moving holes on the walkways can kill you even if you are on a ladder.

That one's more of an unfortunate side effect, since the game was originally XB, death was determined by touching any sprite. So the holes are just moving sprites the same color as the background. :)

I thought of the holes as like *The Nothing* in Neverending Story.... a vacuous hole that eats everything.

Makes it play right in my head. :)

Yes, i doing lot of trials to improve my personal highscore and it is very hard be able to do some steps like the jump over the worms that are moving in the same direction, anyway this helped me to have the actual score. jumped them for two times. I also suspected that some of the worms cab be jumped and some other not in true :P instead it not seems to be.
I also restarting the game everytime after i lost only only life. unproductive continue the game without the bonus. Just dozens and dozens of play actually :P

But with your suggestions there are also more possibility to improve my skill  :)  thanks

Best to date :) Classic99 60Hz. I think the second screen is the key to high scores because getting stuck behind worms very quickly depletes the bonus counter, so jumping over worms moving in the same direction is essential. For that score I managed to do it twice which I thought was pretty damn lucky!
