This is a small hold with three levels. It features intermediate level puzzles where you usually have to make roaches and other monsters do certain things, sometimes at a certain time.

There is no scripting. There are some minimal decorations and a little flavor text, but the main focus is on the lynchpin puzzles.

(As I'm feeling pretty sick at the moment I'll keep this short.)

This is a nice little hold with some tricky puzzles. Worth a look.

It seems almost unfair that there are still so many neat rooms that can be made with just (usually brained) roaches and roach queens. This is a small hold with a nice level of difficulty - most of the rooms seem impossible at first, but can be solved too terribly much trial and error after taking the time to plan one's approach. Well worth playing while waiting for Gunthro's thing to come out!

Also, I couldn't resist "adjusting" Middle Basement: 1N to match what I thought it would be doing after playing its Upper Basement counterpart. As usual, a little more observation would have saved me some extra work. Hope you don't mind the fanarch. :)

I don't mind it at all, in fact I appreciate it :)

I made the entrance rooms on each level non-scorable. I did not have CaravelNet at the time I created this hold, so I did not realize that they would have high scores, apparently because you cannot exit the immediately.

I only found out you can do this via your Profile today, so this was a biiit late. I hope no one is greatly taken aback by losing a few points they gained for doing essentially nothing.
