Based on another standard DROD hold: Twenty-minutes distraction, I did this.

A lot of time ago I though about to make a DROD:RPG hold in a hour, and the rules were that it had to be make in a hour (test included), that had to be 3 levels, and that it could be simple.

This hold have them, three levels, simple, fun (or at least is what I think) and made in just 45 minutes.

Enjoy :D.

I think we could actually use more holds like this one for RPG, quick bite-size holds that are fairly straightforward and easy to beat, but have some amount of optimisation potential (i.e. are not completely trivial). It's a nice change from the long and complex mega-holds that RPG holds tend to be, and the smaller range of choices make it a good training ground for practising to get better at RPG, comparing yourself to the scores on the leaderboards and trying to figure out the tricks.

This hold was made in 45 minutes and it shows as it is very unpolished, but given that it was done as a challenge to make it under such restraints I think the hold came out quite well.

I agree with kiearnmillar. And if Suwako could massproduce holds like this with only a slight time investment I certanly wouldn't complain. If it was as fun making it as it was playing it, that is.
