Beethro gets some therapy. See if Doctor Vizhago can cure Beethro of his snake phobia.

Thanks to testers:

Also a special thanks to Mikko who gave me permission to use a room from his hold named The Ledge in the architecture forum. It's one of my favorite rooms ever. I hope everyone enjoys struggling through it as much as did. Of course it's the final room so good luck getting to it.

This hold wasn't made purely for Banjooie, was it?

lol :lol

Not exactly, but sort of I suppose.

I happened to create a few rooms which had serpents, but you didn't need a serpent timer coincidently. Then I thought it'd be fun to create this hold with that as a theme. So, I guess thanks Banjooie? :yes

I loved this hold, by the way. I don't mind serpent timing, but it was both fun and funny playing through this hold without having to worry about snake preferences at all.

I give it a 9 and 7 brains. Overall not as difficult as some of his others, but a couple of rooms in particular that left my brain sobbing in a corner.

This ranks amongst my favourite of Larry's holds. Almost every room is impossible at first glance, but solvable after some head scratching. I know most people have been distracted by TCB over the last couple of weeks, but if you want to try something different, I can't recommend this enough.

Another 9 from me. I'm finding it hard to settle on how to rate difficulty though. All the rooms are clearly impossible, but easily solvable once you know how. I'll settle on an 8, and you'll know why once you get to the last room that Larry mentioned.

Steve.

Exelent, exelent hold! Alow me to be a complete echo of Stephen4Louise :)

A bit of criticism though: It isn't always funny to wait for x moves until the serpents have aligned themselves as you want them.

I have to admit I have less hatred for this than for other holds by Larrymurk that involve serpents.

Well, I've just conquered this, and as always, Larry's holds are brilliant. Even better, this one I actually managed to experience all the brilliance right through to the last room, since it was a tiny bit easier in my opinion.

I enjoyed every room, with my favourite probably being the only one I needed a tiny tiny hint for - Therapy 3 1N1E. I don't understand how you can continuously come up with such simple looking yet very tricky rooms.

I didn't find that last room particularly hard, but it was a very cool idea.

Yes... That room might be my favourite as well. It's just so minimalistic. You know that every one of the four irregularities ought to be used, so there really isn't that many options, yet the puzzle is tricky.

And I don't. Realize why, that is. Or what or where. :w00t

Finally I was able to beat the last room. This was an absolutely awesome hold, and I hope to be able to enjoy other larrymurk holds soon... I need to improve my skills a lot before that though. Thank you for making such incredible holds!
