Some important points that I must tell you:

- This hold is extremely typo-ridden (As an example, it's Beethro not Bithro).

- Pure hack-and-slash "puzzles", which make up most of this hold, are neither fun nor difficult; they're just tedious. (Horde-management puzzles, on the other hand, require strategy, and thus can be fun and difficult. A good example is Lone Soldier by larrymurk.

- "Puzzles" in which stuff are hidden in darkness, or those which depend only on pure luck, are not fun.

- I believe that you might benefit from reading this.

I'm not sure he's really interested in how to make it better.

It seems like a very poor mimicry of Bad Evil Restaurant. So, rather than criticise what he or she is obviously trying to do, one should criticise his attempts at a Bad Evil Restaurant copycat... no?

I couldn't get further than the second level, as I can't get past the dark room with the fegundi/Halph. However, there isn't much tedium in this hold at all (something that holds such as "sam 8" and "Bad Evil Restaurant" accomplished rather well); thanks to the inverse more feature, rooms full of enemies that come at you aren't much of a nuisance for anyone with just a little patience. The trapdoor dropping can be completed quickly, and the gel with the crumbly walls underneath could have been made far more tedious, but it wasn't.

You ought to put a little more time and effort into making a true "troll-hold". This is easily completable without causing much frustration at all.

And then of course, the legendary s s dgdgfgxsfh 2, a true masterpiece. (That said, it isn't completable.)
