The game is very messy, needs a lot of work.

I would say start from the ground-up.
For starters, you added a bunch of switches that serve no real meaning at the start of the level.
And then, the placements of things just look bland generally.
Play games like "A step too far" "Witch Chaos" (which made fun of my game "mind chaos" lmao).

Or other legendary arcade games. And PAY close attention to why they were done well. And copy some minor sequences that they did into your own. Don't copy anyone else's game too much though ever, because that'd be mean, lol. But there's no harm in taking some minor ideas from others, especially if you evolve them (assuming you come up with some more creative solutions).

Aight, thanks for the feedback.

You could always dm me through discord for advice you know.
It should always be at someone's best interest to ask for advice from someone who's more experienced at this sorta thing. Asking for help every now and then is crucial for long-term success, or at least, from my own personal experiences it is.

Half the time I half understand your advice, next time I ask you elaborate
