The first tank you just outrun but the second tank you can stop by stepping on the blue button again just as the tank is on the far left. The tank stops and you can get both the red key and fire boot. It may take a few trys at this but you will get the hang of it.

How to get the red key?

Collect chips and then step on blue button. The tank goes left. When the tank has gone by step off the blue button. Now just as you see the blue tank start to come back right quickly step on the blue button again. The tank will shift direction and go back left and stop. Collect fire boot and red key. Step on blue button and let the tank pass to the right. No need to run now because the tank will stop on the right side.

Jeff....i would give you essentially the same hint as John, except for me it's easier to watch the postition of the tank in the corridor just above. After you have sent the tank in the corridor you are in to the left and steped off the blue button, step back onto the blue button just as the tank above hits it's own blue button. After a few tries, i was able to catch it right nearly very time.

I just matched the Unconfirmed reported high score on Level 96 - Paranoia with 318 seconds left.

For me, there were several keys to the change. In the two-bee room (upper left), you need to pass the bee that is traveling down the right side after waiting for the bee traveling up the left side to turn out of your way in the middle.

The pattern is D R D3 (pause) D5 and into the ball / fire section. If you are on schedule you can get each chip from in front of the fire without the balls getting in your way. If not, standing in the fire (with the fire boots, of course!) will protect you from the pink balls as they are burned up in the fire.

The next tip is in the "ladder" section where you must go down one side, then up AND down the other. There's not a way to grab all chips on the way down, so remember: Get the chips on the left side first, then go up for the red key. Come back down and across, then go up and down the right side for those chips. Then move on to the bee /fire room (upper right). In here, I go left to pick up the chips on the south side of the room, then proceed to the chips on the east, north and west sides. This leaves you near the exit on the west side of the room and on to the EXIT!
