There was, somewhere on the internet, a sprite comic competition of some variety. Obviously I didn’t win, but I think I placed 3rd or 5th or something? Anyway, it was fun to play with this idea. It would have worked better with one of the glass sealed upgrade capsules. That way the top would drop as the glass (or whatever material it is) lowers to grant access. Ah, the things you didn’t have to explain back in the day.
