Beethro explores a desert plateau where a mad architect is rumoured to live.

This small hold (6 puzzle rooms) was originally my entry for the Limited Resources contest of January '06.

Here's a tasty sampler of Rabscuttle's puzzles that have waited far too long to find their way to the Holds board.

Among other things, you'll find a couple original ways of using roaches to restrict Beethro's movement, a classic mud efficiency puzzle, and possibly my absolute favorite mimic puzzle ever.

My main criticism of this hold is there's not more of it!

A truly lovely hold. And that mimic puzzle, man, that's a doozy. (Made harder by the fact that experimenting is a little difficult, since you have to start with the oh-so-crucial decoy placement.) This is hard; but for those who like challenges, it's well worth it. (For those who don't: take a look at it anyway. Even before I managed to solve anything, I marveled at the cleverness of the challenges.)

Yeah, same here. I didn't really see the point of that room. But the excellent mimic puzzle more than makes up for it. :)

I've also seen a couple of minor unintended bits in 1N1W. But for a hold that's been sitting in the wings for two years, I'm not too fussed.

Let's hope the DNF team thinks that way too! Oh wait...
