As a hack & slash hold, it's okay.

Edit: I've marked all the most important points to consider with a *, so you know what to change. I don't think you should submit this yet until a few more people have a chance to look into it.

Specific room comments:

The other rooms look like they require a lot of work, and I'll comment on them later when I have more time.

You might just wait a couple more days. You've barely had it on here (there's probably a good many people who will look at it who haven't yet).

You know what. The more the merrier isn't always true. Some rooms are quite decent, but by the second level I kind of lost interest. Rooms that are really easy, but time consuming, like stiking out twelve identical blobs of gel, is not very funny, IMO.

Overall: Not bad. There are some half decent, though simple, puzzles here. But there are a lot of filler rooms. I guess this isn't a bad thing, but it just feels like with a little bit more thought, you could make each room a bit better and up the enjoyment factor. Also as mentioned above: some rooms need checkpoints, others could use better positioned ones.

If you want any specific demos to understand what I'm talking about, let me know.

You've put a lot of work into this and many of the rooms are pretty good. Simple yes, but still enjoyable. It'd be a shame not to put a bit more work into it and take this hold from maybe a 4 enjoyment factor up to potentially a 7 or 8. It doesn't need to be more difficult : by having fewer "filler" rooms and tightening up a few other rooms, this hold will be much more interesting and fun. Good luck.
