The Game

Killer weevils have overrun the factory. The only way for Felix to kill them is to spray them in the face with pesticide. You need one aerosol can of "Ubik" to kill each weevil, and you must be quick because if a weevil reaches a pulsating Mutation Chamber, it becomes a Purple Superweevil! Beware also of the ball-bearings which come rolling along the conveyors. These are harmless to the soft-bodied Weevils, but deadly to you.

To help you along, you find the following items useful:

  1. The belt lever, which enables you to reverse the belts at will.
  2. Oxygen cylinders, to replenish your ever-decreasing supply.
  3. The emergency panic button (only one per life) which makes you immune to weevils and ball-bearings for a while.

You may jump down small distances, but you can never jump up.
