You need to post-process the PDF with Ppower4, a java program which is
also available at CTAN.  The post-processed pdf will have incremental
build as you wanted.

By the way, pdfscreen is age old and I have not worked on it since
2000. I would recommend using beamer which is far more feature rich.

Best regards
