Puzzle elements


As you enter the main playing area, you find one inverter in the middle, and a red receiver in front of you giving access to a back area. To the left, you find a blue receiver that gives access to a room with a red emitter in it, and on the back wall on the right side is a blue emitter. In the right side room, you find another inverter, then a purple barrier and then yet another inverter. Next to the last inverter is a blue receiver that gives access to the progress wheel.

If you're struggling with the color of the lasers:
