Posting early again as I'm feeling a bit under the weather and I'm off to bed soon. Any scores posted before 9pm UK time will not count.
I've never played this before so I have no idea what to expect. I might squeeze one game in before bed.

Oh yes. I love this game, it's certainly one of my all time BBC top ten.

Instructions seem to be included with the game. Quick version:
- Collect a spray can, then spray the weevils (one spray per can only!).
- Collect the control lever to give you control over the conveyor belts (very important - this is the first thing I try to grab)
- Collect oxygen cylinders to give you more time (not usually necessary)
- BONUS letters give you a bonus if you collect them all
- If you're trapped, press the invulnerability key (I can't seem to make this work on b-em for some reason? Maybe I'm doing something daft)
- If a weevil reaches a flashing area it becomes a superweevil (try to stop this happening if possible)

First goes-

I'm surprised this game didn't make a bigger impact when it was new. It's quite good.

I owe it to my Dad to have a go at this - Felix and The Evil Weevils was the only game I've ever known him disassemble to work out what the cheats were!

My attempts so far:

Best score so far, Felix games were always good (despite the ridiculous controls in the first 2 games).

True, but there's definately a version of Felix in the Factory with 'normal' keys (z,x etc..) floating about somewhere.
Cheers!

Love this game. Took me quite a few goes to get up to the pace of it - after the first lap of the levels the speed doesn't half ramp up.

I got to Level 12 here, before getting felled by a ball-bearing.

Sometimes I've picked up a spray can and when trying to use it on a weevil, it doesn't seem to work....no spray is what I mean.

Anyone else experience this?

Hi all. I thought I'd drop by to post a note saying that I hope to be able to step back in for a few of the future rounds/seasons. Unfortunately I've just not been able to fit this in recently. :(

Although only performing low-to-middling in the scores, I've greatly enjoyed so far what I've been able to take part in. This has all been a wonderful idea, so thanks very much to the organisers. :)

KarateEd: The spray cans for the Weevils are dark blue.
The light blue ones are air cylinders for your air supply.
Maybe that will help
