This is the final hold in the series of three. The story is that Beethro has to find the potion on the top tower of the castle that saves Halph.

I think the hold is about 5.5 brains but none of the levels are in order of difficultly. Each level has some easy and some hard rooms. There are also a few victory demo's on the title screen which shows the solution of some rooms.

OK, there's not really a story here. But that's OK. Possibly better, who knows?

That said, this is an enjoyable and at times fairly difficult hold. A few of the rooms are more difficult than they are fun, but for the most part it's the other way around.

I give this hold 5 brains of difficulty and an 8 rating for fun.

Josh

Finally done. This was a lot of fun. I rather liked the stories in the other two holds, but the puzzles are well thought in this one specially on later levels. My only qualm is that in some rooms it seemed that only a very specific set of steps worked and it was just trial and error until you got the right move. Some rooms hurt my head for a while: Tower 2 2N1E, Tower 7 1N1W, Tower 10 1S and Tower 11 1N. Overall a great intermediate hold. I give it 6.5 brains and 8 fun, Thanks!

So then I suppose you have to get by either one of the rattlers or one of the golems without killing it. I really cant see how to do this.

Wow i really like this hold :)
It's full of quite challenging puzzly puzzle rooms. It has some puzzles that feels very quickly made, but it also has some really great puzzles, (especially towards the end). The Hold was very fun to optimize too.

I gave it 8,5/10 overall and 6/10 brains. Great job Vipul! :)

Good hold. I like the puzzles, but too easy.
I give it 7 fun and 5.5 brains! Good one. :)

I have really enjoyed this hold. I am stuck though - I cannot find the secret room on level 3 - it is the only room (secret or otherwise) that I have to do and I simply can't find it. Thanks for any help.
