    I think I have level one pretty well worked out and have made it to level two a few times now (once on my first man today!)

    Here is a tip for the left side screen that I have worked out with much trial and error.

    When the game starts move up the first ladder and turn right into the lowest tunnel (with the pick).
    Run to the end of the tunnel and grab the money bag and return that back to the start of the tunnel and drop it.
    At this stage the guard will be almost to you. Run back and get the pick and chase (but don't hit) the guard.
    Your goal is to get the guard to climb down the ladder, he will do this reasonably quickly. If he doesn't climb down quickly you will need to keep dropping and picking up the pick. This resets the pick timer. Without doing this the pick will disappear and you will be trapped.
    As soon as the guard begins to climb down the ladder, drop the pick and stop all movement of Bagman.
    When you are not moving and the guard reaches the bottom of the ladder he will almost always go left into the corner and then turn and walk along the bottom of the screen. If he happens to climb the ladder again then repeat the procedure with the pick until he climbs back down and walks along the bottom.

    As soon as he has passed the ladder you are free to start hauling bags up to the wheelbarrow with plenty of free time as he wanders away from you.
    This will not work if you make any movement while he is at the base of the ladder making a decision.

    I know that sounds a lot but it only takes around 15-20 seconds and you can have the first screen clear of guards for a while.
    When they return it is usually together from the bottom and they are manageable and easy to steer around at the early stage of the level.

    I hope that helps someone enjoy this game a bit more and helps towards a new PB.

    Just don't go beating my score though!

    Here are the rest of my tips for this game.

    Clear all left screen bags first. Start at the bottom and work up.
    Don't put money bags in wheelbarrow straight away. Gather two or three together and put them in one after the other to maximise bonus.
    When left screen is clear, skip middle screen and push barrow all the way to right screen.
    Clear top three bags straight away. Bring others up in lift one at a time.
    If cops won't leave lift area on right screen then use this time to clear middle screen one bag at a time.

    The blue bag is worth double bonus. Keep a yellow bag next to the barrow, carry the blue bag and drop it next to the barrow also.
    Yellow bag in first, then blue equals 8000 points for blue bag.

    Ride in the wagons as long as you need to until guards move from danger areas.

    When using the pick don't kill the cops, just make them run away. You will need to keep dropping and grabbing the pick repeatedly or else it will disappear. Dropping/picking up resets the pick timer.

    If you enter a screen and the lift is not where you want it then quickly run out and back in screen again and it will have moved/changed direction.

    Don't ever stand still, even if you are waiting for a lift run back and forth on the spot, running horizontally equals points.

    Hope this helps someone grab a few extra points.

    This game ends at 6pm AEST - which is just under 3 hours from now. I won't be around to call time up, perhaps @camaro or someone else can do the honours. I didn't play this as much as I thought I would, I think it's just another of those games with heaps of potential that suffers from the way to hard way to fast syndrome.

    And double crap. Just realised that I forgot to put the next game up on Friday night, will try and get it up shortly

    took a break from painting chores, ended up being a 2 hour break, and finally cleared the 1st level, which is a first for me. I did pretty ok on my first and only crack at L2, by just grabbing a couple bags from the first screen, then hightailing it to screen 3 for a few more, but was on my last life so no time to experiment. I was expecting L2 to look different for some reason. Anyway, happy with this!

    Didn't quite crack the 100K I was after but I am happy with this score.

    Still not happy with the stupid initial entering system, take a look at my best two games initials.

    Well done to all on this game. I'm disappointed that I never got back to playing it as I was enjoying it (and hating it) and reckon I could have gotten through level 1. It'll be on my list of things to do after this MGL

    Good win @bigredbird, and a good analysis you posted too.

    Was anyone else using a bag as a weapon? Wasn't always a good strategy, but it could get you out of a tight spot sometimes.
