Yes, you can get to "full understanding" if you make sure to investigate and think about everything very thoroughly.

To make the level, I spent a lot of time going through this cycle in the editor:
- Duplicate a quad (a rectangular texture area)
- Set quad texture to unique
- Replace quad texture image
- Change quad size to fit image size
- Position quad awkwardly
Most of those steps could be eliminated.
Note there is currently also a glitch where you can get through walls and other obstacles if you hit them at the right point. You can totally win the game without exploiting it, though! Patch soon.
