A few words about the hold's difficulty, every level should be harder than the previous one and each level is based on a different element with its own easy and hard rooms.

Thanks to Lucky Luc, KieranMiller, da rogu3, ads, Nuntar and LarryMurk for providing comments and preventing lots of US.

I should probably leave some comments since I finished this hold.

It was quite fun. The early levels were relatively easy, with some nice manipulation and lynchpin rooms. The later levels definitely got rather hard. Some required some rather precise execution to the point where some of the tricks for execution could be considered lynchpins in and of themselves, which I find pretty fun as a player, but I know can turn some people off.

What I like is that the vast majority of the rooms were pretty novel and generally avoided being finicky. Overall I'd say it's a 9 for fun with about 7.5 brains overall.
