the first level of a however-many-i-feel-like dungeon. someone else came up with one of the descriptions, and i took the theme and ran with it.

note:

i know 1E is a bit epileptic. i'm not sure where i was going with it. feel free to skip it, since i'm just going to rebuild it from the ground up.

Looks good so far. In 1s 3e you can take away the trapdoor.
I beat every room besides for 1n 1e. How can I control if there will be a tar baby spawned in the serpents square? I hate this type of thing. It is just like KDD level 16 2e. It is pure luck. You can't control it. And if a baby getts there? Too bad. You have to start over again.

Yesterday I finished all rooms on The Lobby. I liked level of difficulty - medium no too easy rooms, no really hard rooms. Here is short overview about each room:

1E: I liked it but why there are those trapdoors? Maybe to make room harder you can block entrance to brain using red door and leave trapdoors as they are now. I see why there are those 3 orbs inside green doors, but you could use three green doors one tile before yellow doors and delete these yellow doors.

1S1E: I like all variations of 8 Gates of Bill however I thougth that there will be next puzzle after solving initial 4 orbs :).

1N1E: Very good room I don't know if my solution was the same as intended.

Actually presence of brain is good thing for player, otherwise roaches probably didn't block queens so good. This room took me most time because it was my first encounter with brained tar babies and sometimes I tried to kill them "from memory" :).

2E: Good eyes room, last chamber could be harder.

1S2E: My favourite room. Really good combination of labirynth, wraithwings and roach queens. Only there could be more wraithwings :). My solution (I don't know if it's same as intended):

1S3E: Actually this room is boring and easy - you just need to kill snakes and trap is too fast accesible. Maybe you should add some twist - for example snakes on left shore, or maybe goblins or queens.

3E: I don't like this room. I don't like rooms where I can't control things happening. My solution:

I will wait for next levels to test.
