Not that I haven't mastered the hold, and got a sneaky 1-move win on a certain level, but.

Also nice. More interesting and better done than The Zombie Problem. Still quite easy, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

3.5 brains, 7 rating. (I'd give it 7.5 if I could.)

I can't believe I never mastered this on before. Very nice hold! All the puzzles are easy and interesting, the story and scripting were top-notch. At the end, I though I would have to kill the slayer, but It came as a big relief to me when I learned that I could blow him away!

I gave it 3 brains of difficulty and a 7 rating. Thanks for a fun hold! BTW I liked this one better than the Murder Mystery.

I just powered my way through this hold yesterday, when I saw that Remlin had overtaken me on the high scores list. Remlin!!!

Anyhow, it's a quite easy hold--able to be completed in a relatively short amount of time. No room really makes you think all too hard about what to do--it's merely a question of doing it. A couple of annoying serpent issues crop up, but they're more of a hindrance to optimization than anything else.

The plot is seemingly sub-par, but I pretty much skipped it anyway, so don't take my word for it.

3 brains, 6 overall.

I gave it a 5 overall. An interesting concept but not very good dialogue (which is part of this hold's premise). The scripting was good and the beginning stages made it feel somewhat spy-esque.

the puzzles were generally straight-forward with nothing striking me as particularly difficult to see. I had fun optimizing a few rooms but that's about it. Not something I'd really recommend, personally.
