Welcome to the Happy House. This hold has a bit of everything: queen wrangling, timed(?) tar mothers, brain controlled snakes, deadly spirals, evil eye entries, plus maybe a surprise or two. But, hopefully these rooms won't drive you too insane. We wouldn’t want you staying in the Happy House forever, would we?

Enjoy.

I liked the hold so far; like The Killing Jar, a nice distraction from Dugans (there I'm at level 10 now).

I do seem to be stuck in the exit room with the Wraithwings (1N)
I can enter the room from three sides, but from none of them I can kill all Wraithwings, the last three or so stay at a safe distance and there is no room to "outmove" them... :-O

It's not too difficult to do by entering from The Entrance...you should be able to "convince" the ones above the blue door to come around the edges by some diagonal "pushes". I'm pretty positive that's the only entrance you're going to be able to beat it from.

Game on,

I have corrected this. The download at the top should now be free of the exit bug and will let you exit normally now.

Sorry for any inconvenance. :?

Need some help!

I'm in room 1N, 2W and I can't seem to get the timing of this one. I've got number 1 blocked and 3 cleared out, but number 2 keeps starting to fill before I can get there.



Thanks,
Jim J. :~(

Thanks swann_88, I tried to keep a row of tar babies there but by the time I get to the bottom, they come down and the tar starts down the path at 2. I'll try again.

Thanks, Jim

sorry I replied by looking at the room
I have since been trying and it doesn't work that way
I think there is only one cycle of the snakes where you have time to reach that corridor
possibly only if you don't hit the trapdoor on the way by

I'm not sure if it's only one cycle, but it's very rare, however...

Thanks for everyone's help. I finally figured out what you meant and was able to finish this room.

Thanks, Jim

Moderate difficulty, but fun, well-designed hold!

I really liked this hold.
Much more original than all the other usermade holds I played so far (though that's not much)

Only things that bothered me were the useless crumbly walls everywhere, and that in 1N2W you needed to wait for the right cycle to be able to finish the room (or was there another way? getting babies stuck there didn't help me)

Anyway, I salute the maker of this one :]

It took me quite a while - even after looking at the forum and the online maps of this one to realize how to solve it.
