Thanks! Planning on working on a sequel in 2020. :)

My friends showed me this game and i love it!

This is the level i created althought its a little complex, basically you need to activate 4 special levers to open the exit... have fun, oh, and be careful because there are some levers that you wont want to open.

I think I've been unfair, last tip, in the last room you will find 4 numbers to activate some platforms. Some have to be open and others closed, those numbers correspond to the lever that they had to activate to advance in the level, for example they are the first and second lever ... before entering the room they need to leave them on or off to open or close the floodgates.
