Question: in Eugene's Lair, why when I first enter the cavern is the vertical Amoebatron colour-cycling (as if it is an 'Angry Eugene', although it doesn't settle down directly above the portal in the way Angry Eugene does), but then if I lose a life and the cavern is refreshed, the Amoebatron stops colour-cycling and remains cyan (until such time that all the items have been collected, at which point the colour cycling kicks in again and it descends to guard the portal as you would expect)?
Regarding the above oddity, I've been back and checked and that was the case in the earlier Manic Panic files as well, I just didn't notice it at the time.
Back on the subject of rotating the torch beam, if Willy finds himself on a conveyor belt standing still (e.g. if you fall onto a conveyor whilst keeping the 'upstream' sideways movement key depressed, so the keypress and the conveyor cancel each other out), are the rotate keys active whilst Willy remains stationary on the conveyor?
I presume the answer is yes, because the sideways movement flag isn't set in that situation, even though a Left-Right movement key is being pressed by the player.
