I really like this hold. It's nice and easy for people who enjoy an easy hold, and it's fun as well. It would have been a perfect entry to Holds Al Dente.

I give it 3.5 brains, and a 7 rating.

Easy, fun little hold. I agree with Wallu that the first level rooms needs to be marked uninteresting, though.

The story is fun, and I liked the multiple options, but I found it very strange (major spoilers below):

Overall, I gave the hold a 7 with 3 brains of difficulty.

I'll admit that it's an interesting concept; and I did enjoy the actual monster rooms; but...

Heh. It's an okay hold. Could have used a bit more rooms, or a bit more testing, but its a great hold! Took me a short time to figure it out, and it was good! I rate this hold 2.5 brains, and 6 fun rating.

Keep posting,

This hold gave me a half hour of fun. It's a nice and easy hold and I really like the idea of choosing the end. However the plot is a little silly (Don't help the victim, lie and win?)

6 Points and 3,5 brains. :)

Mastered!

I concur with the previous statements. This was a fun hold with relaxing puzzles. A good time-spender on a lazy Sunday afternoon (or an unrushed Saturday midday for me, I suppose). I like how Jimmythins makes holds. More than that, I feel the urge to play more by him.

I also agree with the previous statements regarding the plot. Should I feel encouraged to let someone get slaughtered in front of me, lie about it, and then personally kill the self-proclaimed murderer to succeed in life? Sounds like a bad plan to me. Still, the concept and plot is pretty neat otherwise.

So,
6 for fun
3 for brains
50/100 approval rating.

This was a really neat idea. I liked the concept of being able to choose, but I felt like it was more like a "Find All Possible Scenarios" hold than a "Choose Your Own Adventure" hold. And I agree that there didn't seem to be a really "good" ending, in the sense of being moral.

It would be a fun hold for optimization though. Thanks! I had fun going through it. Nice and short.
