Hi Fabrizio,

- Bonus lifes
- More keys to pick up in higher levels
- Loose one key when you get killed
- Different moving patterns for the enemies. Instead of just   
varying the speed, you could give every type of enemy a special 
movement pattern. E.g. 
  - patroling between the corners
  - stop and go
  - two "steps" forward and one "step" back
  - switching between two speeds every ~0.25 second
All patterns should be "rythmic", introduced level by level and 
enemy specific so that the player can memorize them.
- Utilizing the difficulty switches, but read them only at the 
start of a game. And disply the settings somehow together with 
the level/score.
- utilizing the fire key, e.g. for an emergence escapy back to 
start (loosing all extra points, the key(s) and the fruit)
- some more sounds, e.g. a ticking sound when the fuel 
- if (and only if) you have space left, some encouraging inter-
level message every 5 or 10 levels.

Have fun!
