hey!! Thanks for the playthrough. You did very well!
Watching you play gave me many insights about the game's design. I now know I need to make it clear that the lightning bolt machines can be destroyed. I've also decided to add a sign of some sort to indicate the direction of the save points.
As for the elevator platform, it disappeared because you can't go back up again. But I now realize that it might confuse players. But in the current version, I've made it so the platform stays. In addition to giving the game a sense of continuity it would also help players get past the lightning bolts more easily.
Once again, thanks for the full playthrough. And thanks for the follow!
