How did you get to such a high level? What kind of strategy did you use?

try not to buy health for the first few stages.
try not to use up all your ammo for the first couple of stages.
then once you have enough money buy the upgrade to the pistol.
then get the shotty.

I will have to try that. Did you buy health between buying the upgraded pistol and the shotgun?

only upgrade your pistol once and use it for the first few stages, it will take a couple shots to kill the zombies.
upgrade the shotty to the last one or you can buy the smg
the first 2 rocket launcher sucks it only good for long range last one is good
then once you have enough get the chainsaw, then upgrade it to the laser.

it owns

Bugger that. Get the shotgun first, then you can start getting shotgun ammo drops automatically.

Each to their own though, but half the time I don't bother with the pistol upgrades. It kinda depends what I'm getting from the houses, but I don't upgrade that weapon unless I've built up a lot of ammo for it.

My general advice is to finish level 1 with at least $250 (go straight to the end and kill zombies until you get at least that amount, then exit). At level 2 you'll get another $100 in a pinch, which buys the shotgun. Use the shottie from 3+ until you have enough money for either the machine gun or the pistol upgrade (if you have a lot of pistol ammo).

From about 6+ onwards I generally alternate between the machine gun and shotgun, generally always upgrading whichever I have the more ammo for. I do this until well into the teens and you can start thinking about the rocket launcher and chainsaw, and I don't pay for health unless I'm down to about 20%.

And oh yeah, I got to level 29 with 790 kills.
