So, after playing a lot of holds, I desided to make one. I tried to make it as puzzly as I could, so I used idea generator a lot.

This hold is prety short: just 3 levels. First level is kinda overcomplicated, but it's beatable. Second one is much better, than first one. Third level is the hardest, but still beatable. It also had best puzzles (and most annoying ones =/)

Hope you'll enjoy this hold. Give me feedback, if you find some errors.

I've played through 2 levels so far.

For the rooms I've commented on below you might want to check my demos. EDIT: removed after architect got them

Whatever I didn't comment on is probably fine in terms of not being breakable.

Just played through levels 1 and 2 of the hold without looking at mxvladi's comments - as such they might be a little redundant, but maybe there's some valuable stuff in here.

The most important comment to put front and center is that there's a backtracking problem with the secret puzzle room in Level 2:

Well I've completed 3rd level, apparently "the end" only lets me go back to 3rd level right now.

Demopack including third level demos attached. EDIT: removed, assuming architect got demos by now.

"The end" level is kinda strange, but logicaly it has sence. You have cleared the dungeon, so now you have to leave it. Just go back to stairs at first level. This is not clear enough, so I'll put scroll in "The end" level. I'll upload updated version soon. Now it's time for post-mastery level review

I really was suprised that Level 3 has only one broken room. So here is updated version. I also updated hold at the top post. List of changed rooms:

No replies for 2 days. Looks like I fixed all troubles with my hold! So, tomorrow I'll finally upload it. If my hold still has some bugs, tell me before I do that.

It isn't all edit, so i cannot see new changes.

In level 3 1W :

Hi, sorry for the late reply. I got through a lot of level 3, but then got stuck on the 1E orb puzzle - couldn't figure out any logical way of narrowing it down, and putting it into an orb puzzle solver didn't really help either, maybe I wasn't giving it enough processing time or something. Didn't see any sneaky way to skip a door either.

Here's some attached commentary on each room passthrough I got up to that point; most of them are just "this pass is fine" but maybe a few of them point out some solutions or interesting details that might be overlooked. Note that this was for the June 20th version so some of this might be outdated / fixed already by now.
