Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

Here are a few hints for getting a higher score:

  • Throw your powerball in a narrow space so it will bounce more. The more bounces it completes before hitting a monster, the greater the bonus. Continue to encircle the fruit to keep increasing its point value.
  • It takes less cherries that dots to get a new powerball, less apples than cherries, etc.
