I'm strongly feeling the urge to upload my highscores (despite my continuing moral qualms about the advantage I get as a beta tester) but I figure I can have more fun this way :)

C h a l l e n g e !
 Thus far, most of the attempts for Level 10 3E have been rather timid, or just plain callous and disrespectful towards your helpful friend, the mimic :thumbsdown.

So, let's see a solution that's under 200 moves. For extra bonus and style points, you could also try to finish the room with the mimic next to you, in the exit.

Aw, but think of the thrill of having the high score in every room! That is, until I beat them all. During testing I never quite finished optimizing through levels four and five, but I'll get to all of the levels eventually, just you wait...

We have a winner with Bibelot, and a very neat (too neat?) solution at 194 moves, though he still kills the mimic before exiting. Boo.

Some of the other demos have seen some really interesting tactics, and even if they're not under 200 moves, they're still fascinating to watch, if just for the variety.

There's still some scope to optimise the room further, if anyone's interested (though my demo for both challenge objectives comes in at just under 200 moves) My best for the room is 184 moves, but after seeing some of the tactics on display, I'm certain there's better.

I notice I don't have any unique highscores for levels 1-5 except for 1 room you missed a trick in. I've been keeping ontop of most other rooms, returning the favour when others have beaten my scores - except where the solution appears optimal and I just left it. There's no fun in having a solution exactly the same as everyone elses.

I'll see how things go and maybe upload near the start of May (when everyone can feel free to mod me down for my weakness)

Guys, I can't even figure this level out. I have to clear all the tar but since the tar is only two thick, I cannot clear it all, leaving the round splotches. Am I missing something?

Yep...you're missing the Hints and Solutions board, which has the answers: http://www.drod.net/forum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=6094 .

I highly suggest that you complete your registration for CaravelNet so that you can effectively search for hints through the Hints and Solutions board. You should have gotten an e-mail when you bought JtRH, which explains how to set it up. This will allow your high scores to be uploaded, let you view the top 8 demos of rooms you've completed, and enables room images for JtRH rooms you've explored. I believe there is also information for this in the "troubleshooting" file in your DROD:JtRH directory.

Game on,
