I can't get past ~150.000 points. Is there any magic trick or is it just getting long fever times?

Well, just make me feel inferior why don't you. I was happy getting 80,000 yesterday! What nest level/multiplier are you on? –  Doozer Blake Mar 11 '11 at 14:53
    
I have a x26 multiplier and there's an objective asking for 175,000 points (last objective left for this level) –  HenryHey Mar 12 '11 at 16:39

With a x26 multiplier, your goal should be around 25k per island. You need to keep fever for the entirety of the first island and before landing on island 2 you should be nearly 30k. Try your hardest to touch the clouds as often as possible during fever as well, it will be over a thousand points each.

There isn't much more to say other than keep your fevers as long as possible. If you're less than 75k after reaching the 4th island, just restart. You'll have the first couple islands memorized quickly (until the next day). Might take a couple days, but you'll get there.

I got to 175k! Just to add a little to the answer I wouldn't recommend going for the coins as it can make you lose the flow. –  HenryHey Mar 16 '11 at 22:01
    
Congrats! Now try and top 200k, my top is 212k! –  Lathentar Mar 22 '11 at 16:10

Always complete your objectives to gain higher nest multipiers. The higher the multiplier, the more points your can get. 150000 is a pretty solid number, though...

If you're really pushing for a high score, it comes down to fever mode and speed. Your score increases twice as fast when you're in fever mode, so you need to be in it as much as possible. Typically, if at any point I lose fever mode on the first three islands I'll quit and restart.

Second is speed - the further you get, the more time you have to rack up points. This means not taking chances, and using speed coins whenever you can. Typically, if at any point I get stuck crawling along I'll quit and restart. This usually means that if I end up playing a game to its completion I'll run out of daylight on the ninth or tenth island.

Finally, try every day. Some days you'll get an easy game, some days it'll be hard. If you just can't do that well on any given day, don't worry about it and pick it up again tomorrow.

As a point of reference, by top score is 331516 on the x30 multiplier.

I currently have a highscore of 234,213. The trick is to stay in fever mode as long as possible. I will quite often have 110k by the end of island 4; from then on, it's all about the amount of mistakes you make.

my highscore is 301,309 on x30. stay on fever mode for as long as possible from start. always try and be in fever mode at the end of a level, so u get heaps of points flying to next island. to get this much u need x30 and u need to get to atleast island 9. speed coind r bad- they just make u lose a rhythm. play lots and get to x30- youll get to know the islands better and know when to go down. i restart if im not in fever mode at the end of levels 1, 2 ,3 4, 5.

My current high score is about 322000 but that's with 30x multiplier and reaching the 10th island. Just keep trying to not lose the fever. I have managed to get to the 5th island without losing it before.

My high score is 403,292 on 38x and all I did was keep in fever mode, you do that by getting 3 perfect slides in a row. Getting perfect slides is easy all you have to do is land on a downward slope. Seems hard but it's not:) good luck
