icon A hold by any other name...  
Not really much- just a few rooms I made in my spare time.

(EDIT: This was mainly just messing around in the editor -- I would rather Entrapment be considered my architectural debut.)

I think you're definitely underestimating the difficulty of this hold, especially the two serpent rooms (the two tar rooms are relatively easy). 1W could really use a checkpoint - it's annoying to kill 3 serpents and then die by mistake and have to restart.

Overall, though, 4 nice rooms, and an amusing diversion.

I can't get the blur door to drop, and I also can't find this 12th room. What, yo, is the dilly?

I don't agree fully - 1W is quite easy since the central orb toggles the chamber doors, and serpents tend to like clockwise movement.

A "blur" door?

Ooh - I know! It could be a new feature request - a door that phazes in and out of existence once every 2 moves.

Only joking. :)

The room in question is 2S 1W, which I would guess has accidentally been made "required".

Got to agree with Eytanz about the checkpoint in 1W. Agaricus might think that room is particularly easy, but it took me 40 minutes to kill the first 4 snakes. Led the last one to it's death, 'cept I hit the orb at the wrong time and had to hit "R". 'Scuse me while I go sulk. :weep

Edit: Heh, second time around it took me about 3 minutes, but it was more luck than judgement.

What?

You did it the hard way?

Didn't you know that...

There's nothing really hard about that - I did it in 5 minutes.

Well, I for one definitely didn't see that. Dang.

I do wish there was a smiley for "I feel like an idiot".

Yeah, but it's not implemented yet, and Schik said we should limit links to attachements as they can cause database problems.

Lack of betatesting. I'm really sorry about that. The blue door was because of a "secret" room I added and forgot to uncheck the "required" thing. Again, it should have been tested more.
Sorry.

This was a nice little hold. I enjoyed the stairs trick. I thought it was really funny.
