Votes yes for your score.  With practice, you can go much further than level 12.  If you're lucky enough to beat the game without using a continue, you can have anywhere from 2-4 million points.

Some tips from my own experience in playing this game:
 

  • Avoid the shoe as much as possible; it makes it too difficult to bounce off of your bubbles.
  • Fall through the holes as much as you can; falling often through the holes will make those bonus stage bottles appear more frequently.
  • More kills with fire bubbles and water bubbles make those respectively-colored cross power-ups appear more frequently in the game.

Most importantly:  try to pop as many trapped enemies in the bubbles as possible at once.  If you pop them individually, you're not going to rack up the points very quickly.  Keep in mind that the higher your score is in the game, the sooner trapped enemies escape from the bubbles and the sooner the "HURRY!" warning will appear.

Thanks for the info. I will definitely try that out. I always have grabbed the shoe speed-up when available. I'll see if I fare better without it. I've also avoided falling through hole at the bottom for fear of hitting enemies on the way down from the top.
