Looking for a new challenge, Beethro sought out an architect whose holds he'd ventured into in the past, wondering if he had any new dungeons for him to explore.

"Well, I have got a new one. But, to be honest, it's just a token effort".

Here's a short, sweet, not too hard, non-linear hold (23 rooms total) for you all.

Beta-testing (including additional room variations) by TFMurphy, mvxladi and CuriousShyRabbit.

Here's a new hold from Jacob, featuring tarstuff switcher tokens, arrow rotation tokens, and some other pleasant surprises. The clever and varied tarstuff switching puzzles make this hold well worth the effort to download and play. :)

Yay! Finally it's released!


This hold is exellent. It contains a lot of interesting puzzles.

Puzzles are based on tokens in most cases, except for postmastery room, 2S 1W and 3S 1W. In addition to exellent tarstuff token puzzles, this hold contains some lovely arrow rotator token puzzles. 4N is my favourite of them.

Most of arrow rotator puzzles are relaxing, while tarstuff change tokens puzzles are challenging.

I really enjoyed playing this hold. I give it 10 for fun and 4,5 brains.

This is another fine effort by Jacob. I don't think it was quite up to the standards of some of his previous work, but it was certainly very good fun.

I will say that either the secrets in this hold are very well-hidden, or I'm losing my touch for searching.

Secreted for minor spoilers that reveal the number of secret rooms in the hold.

Overall, I give this hold an 8 for fun and 6.5 brains of difficulty. (Although I thoughts that the solutions to 2S1W and 2S2W were much harder than the rest of the hold.)

It looks like a lot of people started this hold but didn't complete it, so I want to give it a plug. While there are some tough rooms, they do respond to persistence and I got a lot of satisfaction and quite a bit of enjoyment out of working through these puzzles. Included in the 22 pre-mastery rooms are 6 sets of room pairs that contain slightly different versions of each other. Hey, it's a time-saver; once you've solved one, you're well on your way to solving the other. Definitely more than a token effort.
