Its a respectable enough score, but it'll only count if you post it in the league by 12 noon Sunday ;)

3rd level sounds about right - I died at the 2nd boss with that score above.

For the first level:

Speed
Option
Missile
Laser
Option
Option
Speed
Speed

(you can mix & match the last 4 a bit)

2nd level

Option
Speed
Question Mark
Speed

Keep racking up the question marks when you lose them.

IIRC you can only get up to 4 options ;P
