Right now this hold is a concept and is not intended to be "completeable". I am striving to create the largest possible array of options for the player as possible while still providing distinct goals.

Have Fun

I think you've done a good job here. The fact that every possible benefit is instantly accessible actually makes the choices harder (which is good, in my opinion), because it's not a simple question of 'can I reach bonuses in the next level (which are usually better) before I take these?'.
However I must say that I don't fancy a room full of trapdoors. Having them as puzzle element is of course great, but once you finish this puzzle, not all areas are accessible anymore. I don't know if that was your intention, but it makes you feel very dissatisfied when you have to leave a bunch of stuff behind if you feel it's not necessary.
My conclusion, though, would be still be: nice one ;)

I think that you have confused the purpose of this hold. The idea is that the perfect player will get all the trapdoors. Also, after you beat this level the game is over. All the work that I plan to do now is balance it.

I have this strange feeling the arrows in 1N1E are supposed to point to W instead of E.

You're probably going to need a lot more monsters/less ways around them to make choosing fights interesting. Currently it's possible to get most of the keys without killing anything and faceroll everything at the end with 0dmg taken.

Btw, flip the easternmost tunnel in the entrance.

This was my worry. I'll do a rework of the monsters on the floor.
