This one-level hold is all about mimics and small spaces. The rooms mostly involve either Beethro or a mimic having to solve a puzzle while having very limited space to move.

A big thanks to Insoluble and superluminal for their help in beta testing my hold!

Bomber50 has really established themselves as an architect with a knack for making super fun easy/medium difficulty level (5 brain-ish) rooms. It's a difficulty category that's sorely underrepresented so it's quite refreshing to see an architect who has such a knack for it.

Mini Mimicry absolutely nails it as a 5 brain hold. The rooms as nice and punchy. The compact room format means everything is to the point, and every single one of rooms here is a lot of fun. There really are no duds. The only downside to this hold is that I was left wishing there was more of it!

It's also worth mentioning that since most of these puzzles are about getting the most out of a mimic, with only a few tiles for Beethro to walk around in, most of the tricks in this hold are widely applicable to other holds.

So, if you're feeling stuck on some tough mimic puzzle in some other hold, maybe try playing this hold and see if solving puzzles here gives you some inspiration for what to do elsewhere.

Just finished playing this. It really is a short and sweet hold, only took me 1 hour 40 minutes. And it was fun all the way through, in spite of how I usually feel about mimic puzzles. Most rooms depended on working out a good strategy, and when you did that, everything fell into place.

A couple of rooms were a bit fiddly, but overall, this is a very neat hold, highly recommended.
