My third serious hold. I have to thank the master DRODders larrymurk, Blondbeard and jbluestein for the testing. Enjoy! ;)

This is a good collection of puzzles. They're not as difficult as Jeff_Ray suggests that they are, but there are some challenges here.

I give this hold an 8 and 6 brains.

Keep up the good work, Jeff_Ray!

Josh

I think Josh summarized things quite well.

I care more about good puzzle rooms than anything else in a hold. Luckily that's exactly what Jeff delivers here. 10 rooms, 10 puzzles.

Keep up the good work Jeff, I'm enjoying your puzzles. (Oh, and I'm glad you used a toned-down version of L1:1E or I might never have made it to the second level).

This is a small 2-level hold containing a variety of puzzle rooms - some have specific solutions, some are more random. Some of the rooms have timers but they seem very generous and shouldn't prevent completion of rooms for the majority of players.

My personal favourites were Puzzles 1-5: 1N which required some fairly basic guard manipulation and Puzzles 6-10: 1S which took a little thinking to work out the solution.

Least favourite room was Puzzles 6-10: 1N - storing a massive rattlesnake such that you can kill it without getting killed by waterskippers yourself (yes - that did happen to me on my first proper attempt...)

Overall not a bad little hold with some decent puzzles.

My Verdict:

Difficulty: 6
Fun: 6
