Cool, another Larry Murk hold. I will immediately download it and bash my head against the wall repeatedly. :)

I've got about three rooms... which is probably more than I've ever done in a Larry hold...

Yeah, good point. I'm not much for updating holds and if anyone cares to look at the hold in the editor before completing it, then have at it. I think it's more fun to complete the hold without seeing it in the editor, but in this case it'll be up to the player's discretion. :smile

Okay, so I'm stuck in the very last room, but I guess that's enough to rate it:

8 brains, and 9/10... :D

Nice brain teasers - although I've really developed a hatred of clowns thanks to the last level... :lol

np: SCSI-9 - Endlich (The Line Of Nine)

Tricky hold, I couldn't do any rooms, but it was still great, which I think is a hard trick to get. Congrats Larry!

I gave it 9/10 and 9 brains. And I've +1'd the hold karma.

Why are you quoting 'Nudge, Nudge' in a thread about a larrymurk hold? If any MP quotes were to be used, it should be from the Gumby Brain Specialist sketch:

T.F. Gumby - "My brain hurts!!"

Amazingly enough, I've managed to solve more rooms in this hold than any other of Larrymurk's 'difficult' holds. The puzzles I've hit so far are really clever, quite a lot of fun.

I've managed to complete all of Spark Tricks, and two out of three on the other two accessible levels. I still can't figure out the uncuttable tar or the infinite tarbabies puzzles, and there is at least one secret room that I haven't figured out yet either.

But wow...lots of fun!
I'm going to hold off on rating this until I'm done, but so far my impression is that it will be roughly 8 brains and a 10 rating.

I dunno I just felt like adding more Monty Python lines


Anyway great hold, but too hard for me.
I really did, however, yern Bethro to put a rabbit out of hat

Oh well

A fine hold. I like the way you include even more difficult versions of the same puzzles to torment the completists out there O:- Escape Tricks: 2W in particular had me stumped.

Finally . . . after way too long I finished the hold. (Excellent . . . ) I am, however, not able to find all the secret rooms on the "Escape Tricks" level.

The one I've found and conquered is

Boy, talk about not paying attention . . . I cruised into those rooms, looking for remaining secrets, noticed they still had monsters in them, and kept blundering through the hold . . .

Textbook case of not paying attention.

I finally conquered and mastered this hold. It took me a long time, and let's be honest, not a few trips to the hints board.

That final room was...well, evil and brilliant, and utterly not how I expected it to be solved. I couldn't figure it out until I watched Larry's demo.

But this is a brilliant and difficult hold. I give it a 10 for fun, and 8 brains of difficulty.

Josh
