    On second level, go down the hole, right, down the column, right. Dig right and jump over the hole. Beasties will continuously spawn. Shouldn't take long to do this.

    BTW, B to Jump. A with the shovel to swing.

    I didn't have a save on level 5 after I beat the game and I found the strategy on level 2 to be extremely slow. There's another infinite spawn point right at the beginning of level 1 and it's much faster than the level 2 spot (and quicker to get to).

    From the beginning of level 1: Dig down -> Dig Right -> Jump over pressure plate column -> Jump up 2 stairs and you are there. There's a row of rocks you can jump on that spawns mobs out of either side two at a time. Two on the left, two on the right, two on the left, etc. I just sat on the left side and killed the mobs over and over. Works the same as the Level 2 place but spawns much quicker.

    You might be able to jump back and forth to do it quicker, but that didn't work well for me.

    On cave 5, start the level and dig down on the left, once you reach the bottom go to the right and jump the gap. Two skeletons will spawn there and as long as you move side to side they will continuously spawn.

    Make sure to have the cheats on to make it easier. You should get this in no time!

    Nukes A Lot 2I also found if one mashes the attack button like crazy as a skeleton is spawning one can accumulate more than one kill per skeleton.
    Each skeleton is worth 200 points and I managed to get 2000 points on some skeletons.
    I checked my method by having the achievement snapped on the screen and yes, after killing 5 skeletons the bar for the achievement jumped a good 6%.
