The F stands for food

I am back working on Channel F again. I had some new positive thoughts for the sixth game I tried to program earlier. So I began to work on it some more. I also discovered the title screen music wasn't looping, so I had to fix that. And, which is new, I made the menu more legible. While this looks better, I don't know if it will all fit on a TV.

So it's a little like level 2 in reverse.   Just thought of another scenario a few minutes ago where level 5 will be like that old cancelled Atari 2600 game "Garfield" which Mr. Celery needs to cross fences while things are whizzing around the fence and the
