A challenging one-level hold exploring the puzzle potential of Halph. It features an open level layout, uncluttered visuals, and mainly lynchpin-style puzzles.

There's not a Halph level in any of the Advanced Concepts holds, is there? This one here is a pretty good substitute. A lot of the rooms require tricks that the official holds don't expect of you. Luckily there's a series of tutorial rooms to prepare with.

Most of the rooms are lynchpin-based and fun to figure out. Would recommend playing. On the other hand a couple are heavy on trial-and-error (like 2N4W, 4N1W) and not on the same level as the rest of the hold.

Incidentally several of the rooms are setup-heavy, and if you make a small mistake you'll effectively have to start again from scratch. I found it useful to prepare an editable hold to copy-paste rooms into in order to see if a setup would work before wasting minutes arranging things in-game.

This is a very enjoyable hold. It takes a while to get used to Halph's behaviour, so the first few rooms you try may seem impossible. However, once you get the hang of it, the going gets a bit easier. That being said, the hold is still pretty difficult, especially a couple of secret rooms. But hey, those are secret for a reason...
The style is inviting, with nice design and compact and minimalistic puzzles.
After playing this hold you'll probably have a quite improved understanding of the ways of your little annoying nephew Halph.

Really recommendable.
