Scripted hold where each turn you only have 2 possibility :
- wait
- move : going left if you are on the right, and going right if you are on the left
- (or press the special command for 'cancel' the level)

And that's all. 12 levels like this, most of them are easy, and the few others need some thinking.

I took a look at this because it had no reviews yet.

So, I really liked the idea. I'm always a fan of pushing DROD beyond what it was made for.

However, I feel this is probably too simplified to be good for more than a little gimmick. Since there are literally only two possibilities every move, you can pretty much brute-force every puzzle. I literally brute-forced the final puzzle with DRODscript itself because I grew tired of it, and it spat out a solution in about 10 minutes (though I'd been lucky by searching in the right direction).

To make matters worse, quite a few rooms almost felt like they were designed to be brute-forced. For 2S1E, 3S1E, 4S1W, 4S and 4S1E, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and just pushed buttons until they were solved.

There were also good rooms, though. I really liked both 3S1W and 3W, since they required you to actually form a strategy. The rest of the rooms didn't require too much thought, but I had an idea of what I was doing, which was nice.

All in all, not a bad hold, but it has some problems. 6 brains / 6 fun.
