Nice guide! It’s kind of short, but the length is fine for the simplicity of the device system. Nice job also finding a use for the letdown of a device laser manager! To make it longer, you could add in how to reactivate the laser with a game overlay as well!

Good job! I like how you added lots of screenshots! Also kind of funny how all the words are bolded and enlarged.
