Some notes for beginners (in addition to the video above):
- In the map editor you can use SPACE+mouse drag to pan (and show the grid!). It also supports zooming with mouse wheel.
- The sound editor is not only for sound effects but also for composing patterns (press TAB) that can be used in the music editor ("tracker" in the video)
- The music editor primarily is for arranging songs made from patterns. It can also be used to modify patterns but offers no tools for that.

Anyway, here's my completed Light Cycles game created using your tutorial:
