If it's possible to get an extension of time or moves by paying game tokens, give the player a choice. Sometimes the player would rather restart the level and lose a life than pay for an extension that they know will not be enough and still lose a life.

"Bonus" means "something extra on top of the score". It does not mean "score".


Telling the player "Amazing!" every time they get something right isn't motivating, it's infuriating.
