Lovely game - thank you.  Here is my tribute and you've actually improved the original in my opinion with this.

Now that I've put the videos on my own website ( it's so good to see that you've continuously brought the same high quality with these videos, at first glance you know who the creator is and that's very good, because that's exactly what makes your channel good is that you figured out the design and always stick to it. Well done, you're good!
