Key Game 4: Squeaky prefers quiet

Find Squeaky's key on the keyboard (Left arrow key).
This is the only active key in this game.
Pressing the Left arrow key formally means: make the sound softer, move backwards, move to the left.
You start this game from where Wheelie is.
Squeaky has a soft voice and so he does not really like loud noise. Every time you press Squeaky's key, the music gets softer.
Press the key until you reach Squeaky.
You will hear "hurray!" when you have arrived.
Then the game starts again.
