The puzzle box is a small hold, made up of 14 rooms. The puzzle box contains various, quite challenging puzzles. One or two of them are remakes of puzzles you might have seen yet. Special thanks goes to the Beta testers and commenters :

HAVE FUN !

I like :smile

The rooms were mostly challenging but not too difficult.

1N1W, the clock, was quite fun.

As for the optional room, we'll see if anyone other than Stefan can conquer it. Ouch!

Check the high scores. Rabscuttle has also completed it.

It's really not that difficult, but there is a serious lack of checkpoints in the right locations (the checkpoint that is there right now is pretty much useless (in fact, it prolonged my solution by about a thousand moves, just because I wanted to reach it)).

It's quite a nice hack and slash room. Not overly difficult, but the combination of wubbas, queens and seeps does require some careful maneuvering.

A few more checkpoints would be preferable.

Having just re-done this room, I disagree with this statement.

Well, I haven't played through the unrequired room (its not really my cup of tea), but the rest of the hold was fun and moderately challenging. I did find one small problem with 1N:

This hold had been sitting around in my 'started but not finished' pile for a while, so I decided to take care of that.

The hold contains a little bit of everything -- some nice horde management puzzles, some fuse-cutting, some efficiency...all in all, a very good effort. 2N gave me some trouble, figuring out how to manage the mimics, but I did get it eventually.

None of the puzzles are tremendously difficult -- the one room that looked to be an efficiency puzzle gives you lots of extra time.

I give it an 8 for fun and 5.5 brains.
