  4. Dont lose half your money when you die. (2 players only)

    In a 2 player game, when one player is running low on health have the other first leave the screen. Then have the player in need of health kill their own character. When the low health player dies, as long as the other character is out of the screen waiting to go to the next area, he will retain all his money. If there are no holes to jump in or the enemies are taking to long to defeat the character, it might be preferable to have both characters go near the edge of the screen and have your teammate beat you up till you are defeated then immediately run out of the screen.
