YOU ARE A WINNER etc
but make sure its the last slide so that at the end it will end the slide show

Now this level will be like a review
First make a new slide after the you have passed level 1 slide
Drag the subtitle space into the upper left corner and type:
Click here to Start
And bring the title space in the middle and type
Then copy your level 1 slide and paste it after the slide you just made
in that slide rearrange the walls to make the level different and bring the finish line somewhere else but make sure that your mouse can make it to the finish
then make an after level (see Step 9)
but in that level make a hyperlink to the winners slide either a word or a rectangle or a circle.....
