So.... Buy your self some left-handed drill bits and drill out the
screws. You can do the same with right-handed drill bits, but it
takes a lot more time. With LH, the bit acts as a screwdriver all the

Replace with other screws.
There is one general tool vendor on the net that has LH screwdrivers,
and the very big hardware store in Dallas (Eliot's, I think) had them
when I was there.
(It's fun to ask for them at big box stores, and even most hardware
stores. They think it's a joke, like left-handed poker chips.
