Here is the issue. When Object-A collides with Object-B, the player dies. This pushes player to a "Your Dead" screen, which plays for 3 seconds and then takes you to a level select screen. The player (of course) selects the level that he just died.
Now when the playable level loads, it is in a state of already started. Like it almost picks up where you left off. I have moved the loading of the Dead level and the restarting of the layout all over. So, the level never really restarts.
