Like Plasmarift said below, I used up many lives trying to figure things out.
Saying "The machine" is a bit confusing as there are those other blocks also looking like machines. (like the 2 at the starting point)
imo, the game is fine, just a little more guidance for the 1st box would be enough.
Maybe a think bubble popping out from the mouse showing what the box and machine looks or an arrowing guiding to the machine and on the machine would be shown what the next box looks like?
..or simply just a bit more clarifications in the instructions?? ;)
"The machine" is on the right side of the bottom floor, a bit further right is the 1st box.
The boxes look like the medals including it's square frame.
You cannot land anywhere apart on the box, nor can you touch anything, even those ceiling pipes and signs. You can ignore: the elevator black wires, flowers and spacecrafts.
+ the airlock door can be opened!
Anyway GJ & thanks for the fun! :)
