I wouldn't worry about adding the option to complete the levels out of
order.  I like the idea of being able to skip levels.  That means I can skip
ones which I'm bad at or ones which I'm good at so I can practise the ones
I'm bad at. :-)  The challenge will be to complete all of the levels.  Maybe
make the score say 1000 points per level plus a bonus for time remaining.
Or just record the number of levels completed separately.

Hmm, I was thinking about the comment you made about skipping the level when
you are about to die.  I think that you should only be able to skip the
level at the beginning.  Perhaps a timer, or when you press a button.  Yeah,
give me a chance to look at the level and decide whether I want to try or
skip.  And let me make the same choice each time I lose a life.

It's things like this which really increase the fun value of the game.
