This hold is still unsolvable. You can not get back from a red door in room 1S1E. Grr.

Edit: I take it back. There is a roundabout way of getting back.

'k, the lack of ability to backtrack on the last level just became a really serious irritation, when I discovered that (a) I actually did need to complete the first room, and (b) it wasn't in fact impossible, as it appeared to be. Except that now I have to go back through the level from the start...

To be a little more thorough: I liked the aesthetic here, but there's a fair amount I didn't like. For instance, a lot of the rooms on the first level hit a particular bÍte noire of mine: there are a lot of holes in edge walls that don't lead to rooms. That leaves a whole lot of guesswork as to where you can actually exit a room (as well as guesswork as to where to find rooms you're missing), which I find extremely irritating. (The not-really-doors on the east and west sides of TMMG:1N were a particularly egregious example of this.)

The first level had some interesting variations on a theme, none of them singularly hard, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, the second and third levels contained a number of rooms I found rather tedious: Mud 4N2E, for instance, felt like a whole lot of plodding, and Mixed Grill 4N involved schlepping around dealing with mud for ages, followed by replaying 2N.

There's a fair amount of good here, but also room for improvement.

I seem to be stuck in the second level.

2N3E - Thanks to the tar-controlled wall, its a one-way trap. And i can't see any other way to get back to the rest of the level.

Any help please? It would be appreciated.

There's a secret wall in 2N.
