Tips for unlocking Freeze Willy?

I know it's a good idea to use tombstoning, but any other help would be appreciated.

What would be a good idea is to use normal language when asking for help... tombstoning?

Or you could politely ask what tombstoning means - I didn't invent the term.

It refers to the act of exiting the game in some way (Press Home, Search, or lock your phone) and then resuming from where you left off. In the case of MiniSquadron, you'll resume at the start of the wave you were on but with all lives, score, and multipliers in tact. A pretty important strategy when going after the harder Achievements,etc.

I found it easy to unlock all the planes once I had unlocked Singularity (5th flying daucer from the left). Once I got used to using its pivoting cluster bombs, I was able to rack up multipliers as well as completely blow up planes (which also gives you more points than letting them fall burning to the ground).
Freezing Willy gave me less problems than the big alien octopus (Applelopis). For that, on my first try, I died sometime after level 7...which when I restarted, did not give me enough of a high score (195,000+/-) by the time I finished the level. So next time, I made sure to start with 3 lives from level 4 and I earned the plane (240,000 score) before I finished level 11. That took the pressure off me for level 12.
