Posting a score just to get us started. I'm sure we played this a couple seasons ago (actually season 2), very nice game.

Tricky little game with nice platform action, smooth controls (except getting stuck going up or down between two tunnels), good game play once I worked out which items to go for and what to kill.

I kept trying to kill the ball bearings and getting squished until I re-read the instructions

Not sure how many goes I'll get on this but at least I'm in front right now

Score: 9300

Edit: Don't worry FS, this showed up after I'd done the HST but I've put you in it and it'll show up next time.... besides, you'll have a better score by then anyway......

I'm liking this game so hopefully get a few more tries in

### Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R6 - Felix Meets the Evil Weevils

Does anyone know how to use the Emergency Panic on BeebEm?
The instructions say "Caps Lock", but it doesn't seem to work, and re-mapping Sh. lock doesn't seem to work either :/

@Barbie - I use BeebEm but that key doesn't work for me either. I just don't worry about panic mode which likely reduces my score but the game is so much fun that I don't care.

And..... I finally got a new high score....

I had issues with the panic button in Beebem or B-Em last time we played as well (can't remember which), I resorted to using the old "Model B" emulator instead, which lets you define your own custom key mapping configs.
