Escort Mission is a hold about protecting various monsters. Keep them alive so that you can use them to get past obstacles and conquer the room.

Features 23 rooms over four vaguely themed levels.

I've played through this hold while it was in architecture, and I can say that it is pretty fun and worth playing. Not something that absolutely amazed me, but still a decent hold.

Puzzles are mostly straightforward and the focus is on execution. Occasionally the execution involved can get a bit tricky, and there are some... unusual things happening in later levels to keep things interesting.

Highlights for me were: 1E in 2nd level, 1S in 3rd level, 1S in last level.

6 brains, 7 overall.

Very nice little hold. It focusses on manipulation, but because the concept is reversed (keep the monsters alive, don't kill them yet), it feels pretty fresh.

Also contains some really nice custom monsters in the last level, that only get one single room each. Those customs deserve more than just this short introduction!

Generally, all rooms are doable, certainly not trivial, but nothing impossible either. There's ample opportunity to correct any mistakes you make, so no instant punishment for being imprecise.

And, it's short enough to be playable in some spare moments.
