Once you pass a certain score, say 40,000 for example, then the next game will start you at the 30,000 mark, unless you choose not to use continues

yeah, and if you don't score enough points after continuing, it sets you further back the next time you continue.

Now I'm starting to get the hang of things.  Not to mention, the timing with DDT bombs is important!

Incredible feat of programming. 5 Spiders at once and so much more. Kudos to this game!

 

Don't think I will beat my childhood score of 509K... reflexes aren't that fast.

Must play wiser...smarter... and ponder each move.....

Ok Just shooting works best and it's a thumb KILLER!
