I had the idea for this Hold aeons ago, but didn't really have the Architecting skills to pull it off. I think I've done a reasonable job here.

This Hold's concept is inspired by Easy or Hard and The Choice (though I actually haven't played it, I really must buy it at some point. But I digress).

Also, my apologies in advance to Optimisers who optimise a room as one Player Role to find that another is always faster...

Very fanny. Compliments!
Particularly I had a good time to kill the slayers being a goblin.
I now try to do again it with different methods :D
I give 8 and 4 brains.

I enjoyed this hold. I played using the most difficult settings only -- will probably go back and try the other ones as well. Nothing was too hard except the snake room as the goblin -- that one I couldn't get.

Good idea.

I give it a 7 for fun and 3 brains.

Nice concept, great idea! A drawback is the brevity of this hold, whereas the 5 puzzles you present in this hold are well done. I used the citizen for all of the puzzles expect for one.

7 points and 4,5 brains.

And now go back (New Game) and solve each room with each of the available player roles...

(Is it just me, or should this for scoring purposes really have been 4 levels with the exact same room layout but a different player role for each?)

We did discuss doing something similar, but the curret method should allow all players to progress through using whichever the easiest character is for each room.

An excellent hold! I really liked being the Goblin.

Really nice hold, albeit a bit easy at some points and too short.
I played everything always on the hardest possible difficulty level ^^.
The only difficult room was the second (With the roaches) using Stalwart.

I've played and optimised this a while ago...

I liked this hold. Simply solving rooms with different roles was fun and finding the correct role with which it would be possible to create the fastest demo(for optimising purposes) wasn't so easy.

My favourite room: 2E, was fun to optimise
Other rooms were cool, too.

It was too short though.

Overall: 7 fun, 2,5 brains.

I enjoyed this hold. Playing as different characters was interesting and challenging. It's too bad there weren't more rooms but I'm sure it's hard to design for something that will be beatable by differing characters.

Thank you.
