Here's the latest offering from the architect who brought us The Palaces Drive and Dungeon Country.

Not bad. :)

The rooms in this hold tend to have teeny little 2-brain tricks to them, rather than simple hordes of monsters to kill. Which is good. The story is left to the player's imagination though. And there aren't any actual secret rooms, although there are some AE-style unrequired rooms here.

Overall, a pretty easy hold. Some places in hold could use more checkpoints. Some puzzles could be tougher. But not bad. Nice for people who like easy holds or for ones who are searching for something to optimize.

2 for brains, 5 for fun.

A pleasant (if somewhat easy) hold. Ideal as a lunchtime break.

2 brains, and 5 fun

Have you seen my recent hold? The Great Adventure?
Please then see it!
Well yeah it's very easy but I don't have enough brains for making a hard hold, I don't have too much ideas...
Part 2 and 3 are longer because they have secret places to find and they are like 4 or 5 :D

A very nice easy hold for a break. Nice job man.

I give it 1 brains and 4 for fun.

Could have used a checkpoint or two, but overall, this hold was really well done.

Good puzzles and a good visual appearance.

Don't get the point of the master walls scattered throughout the hold, but it doesn't matter. It was well worth playing.

I thought that it was a nice little diversion but wouldn't really recommend it. Too many of the puzzles were of the "kill these things that are separated by a lot of distance" and "snakes are sooo long" variety. I found myself getting to a room and almost stopping my play simply because it looked terribly monotonous. A few of the rooms were clever but most looked like they were made by choosing from the monster palette at random.
