I just completed this hold. Very tough, but it was alot of fun. Great art work and tricky puzzles. Got hung up a few times, but the fine folks on the forum help out and I continued my journey. Thanks again.

One would say from the layout of things there should be a way to HISM 4S2E, but where?

Otherwise it's a great hold, I only started playing it after Gigantic Jewel Lost. It's very nice to see lots of little things come back in the sequel.

From what I remember, you can get there from HISM 4S1E.

I'm two secret rooms away from mastering the hold and I need a little bit of help. The rooms are somewhere in "Neigbours."

Post-Mastered the hold. It's probably THE best hold I've played so far (GJL is too difficult for me at the moment). MetDROiD Echoes used to be my top 1, but this combines fun puzzles that make you think, puzzles that require good implementation (sewers and Misty Maze trapdoor rooms) and puzzles revolved around awesome artwork. The secrets were fun to find, like how some are blocked by serpents. The story, custom artwork and unnecessary, yet fun things (like the broken force arrow) made this hold even more awesome. Here are my comments on specific rooms:

The Hold art in this hold was great and the way secrets were concealed was also very innovative. It's a surprise how this hold isn't rated 9+. I would seriously replay this whole hold just because it is that good.

haaazmaju I think you would be better asking that question in the Hints & Solutions board. You're much more likely to get a helpful answer there. In fact if you search for help with that room/level you may find that someone else has already asked the question and found the answer. :)

I can't see anything in H&S that's relevant, so I'll answer it here because it does stretch over a few.

Yes! Hold mastered!
Thank you, Tuttle. That was the only thing I was missing. And to make things worse, I already visited the room, just overlooked the right stairs :throw

Ofcourse, first thing I did, was to check the HS board, but this was the only hint I could find.

Where's the Master Wall in this hold? I managed to master it, but I don't recall seeing any master walls anywhere.

A little late answer: there is master wall in the doctor's laboratory.

A really tremendous hold, which I had set aside for many years because of its hair-tearing first room (which reminded me of one of the worst puzzles in KDD). I tried it again this week, and thoroughly enjoyed my experience: gigantic levels, great art, clever and original puzzles... And mostly on par in terms of difficulty with my own skills.
On the downside, I feel there's a lack of checkpoints sometimes, and a bit too many lights out puzzles (but solutions are readily available on this forum and elsewhere). And the ending in itself was a bit of a letdown, but it gave me the impetus I needed to try my hands at Gigantic Jewel Lost again! (even if the latter is way too difficult for me, at least from the few puzzles I tried...)

I'm so sorry but I'll have to ask once again the same question (that's been answered to but I can't figure out the answers that were given)…

I've mastered the hold (which is a wonderful piece of work btw. I can't stress enough my unlimited respect for the sewers and the three times the fun levels!) and I can't find the way to the center of Voluntary Work.

I've been to read the scroll in the laboratory but I seem to be missing an obvious clue somewhere and I can't find anything relevant in the "Hints and Solutions" section… :weep

Is there a second master wall somewhere?

There's only one master wall. But you really should clear all the tar behind it.

Overall a great and epic hold, with amazing aesthetics, puzzles and very well hidden secrets, so make sure to play it:thumbsup. The only thing missing it's checkpoints, but the fault it's of the Doctor e. Will.
10 fun 6,5 brains.

This hold was a ton of fun to play through. It isn't so difficult by modern standards, at least in terms of lynchpins, but there is a good variety of rooms here, some beautiful level art, and some really interesting level concepts.

Voluntary Work felt a bit tedious, but aside from that I don't really have any complaints with this hold. This hold also made me like lights out puzzles.

Difficulty:6
Fun:9
