The levels on intergalactic odyssey progress based on time, rather than score. Also, once you reach a level, you can start again from that same level with full lives and continues if you need.

This means that with enough time and coins, even if you are terrible at this game, you could grind to level 21 abusing continues.

That being said, there are a few tips to make your time easier.

Learn your ships, Red travel fastest, then green, then yellow, each colour has 3 types of ship.

I find red the easiest to deal with, as they are the quickest, the only issue I have had is with the splitter ships, split them too close to the edge of the screen and they are liable to hit each other.

Green are for the most part fairly simple, as the green landing zone can accommodate multiple ships, the most I successfully landed at once were 4 swarm ships. A helpful hint here is that the shooter ships will only shoot if they had a trail to follow. You can however, direct a ship with a slight tap, but it will not shoot. The shots can also be redirected if you need to.

Yellow can be the most challenging. The ones to worry about are the snakes, as they start to come in sets, you can all of a sudden have a lot of ships on screen. The yellow dropper ships can be easily managed in the same way as the green shooters, direct them without using a trail until you have to. Another hint that might be helpful is that the snakes can be split as they are docking, touching the next ship you can change to direction to allow another ship to dock first.

The most advantageous bots If you are struggling would be Insurance, Life and Resurrection to give you the most lives and cheapest continues.

EDIT: Having just beaten level 21, I can let you know what you are up against, the final level took me 30 minutes, across 4 lives (1 continue) and I landed 837 ships

Here's a simple tip which I find helps a lot.

When you get the yellow dropper ships, give them a long route to the landing pad so they drop 4/5 ships. These ships only move where you tell them to go. I play on the Hawaii map and move them to the middle in between the 3 landing pads. When you have 8-10 of these small ships on the screen, the spawn rate for new ships massively decreases as the game thinks there are enough ships on the screen. This means you will not have to land as many ships and can watch the timer count down.
