Not much to say here, except to say that this contains a few puzzles built around scripting, and a pentominos puzzle.

Some excellent rooms. Fine job.

Some comments:

1. 1E has an unintended solution (see my demo).

2. I have not (and might never) complete rooms 1S2E and 2S1E, but it would appear that one could never open the master blocks since 4S is required yet unreachable.

How do I view demos? Do I need to have a carvel.net subscription or something?

In order to download demos in-game, yes, you need a CaravelNet subscription. You can still import demos you find on the message board or that someone e-mails to you without it, though.

Game on,

Just posted a small update. 4S is now reachable, and the unintended solution in 1E has been removed.

This hold is now classified as "This hold is not published on CaravelNet".

Is this intentional ? My existing scores appear (pre-update), but new ones don't get uploaded...

You did get the updated version? If so, I can't reproduce this... I grabbed the updated version in-game and high scores work fine for me. Anyone else?

You're absolutely right... didn't realise I had to click "download" again to get the up-to-date one.

Makes sense though :)

Having said that, I haven't tried to score yet but it looks like it's going to work...

Sorry, I couldn't resist, but this line is just stupidly funny when read out of context:

Excellent...
So many possible meanings.

Reminds of a recent post aimed at Eric regarding doing voice samples:
"If anyone is prepared to do a line, let me know"

And the answer was (something like this):
"As long as it doesn't involve snorting stuff off of a mirror, I'll help out.."

Brilliant!

[EDIT]
Dont do drugs... :)

This is a fairly fun hold that is slightly marred by the existence of several unintended solutions. (At least, I'm assuming they're unintended.)

The unintended solutions that I know about exist in

That said, all of the rooms are good and the puzzles without unintended solutions range from not too bad to fairly difficult.

I give the hold a 7 with 5 brains of difficulty.
