Wow, I can tell that this is a top-notch hold! It seems that you are really good at creating timer puzzles. I played through it in architecture, but forgot to post any comments. So congrads on releasing your next hold-pretty quickly, too!

I gave it an 8 with 4.5 brains, even though I have still yet to re-beat 1N1E in the second level. I will be looking forward to anything else by you in the future! :D

No you didn't :P It's quite clear with only one vote that you gave it 4 brains for difficulty.

Not a bad hold with some interesting puzzles. It's a 6 for me.

Conspiracy, my new hold, has just been released.

A very well-done hold with some good timer puzzles.

The first level is not particularly interesting or difficult, but the second level was quite good.

I give it a 7, with 6 brains of difficulty.

Unintended Solution?

Or was that intended? Looking at the high scores, I think not.

Wow, it just goes to show you, that I'll never be as good as some...

(intended, but I was worried everyone would hate me for it).

I don't hate you, becuase that's the way I solved it... :P

Anyway, I finally mastered this hold. Great work, and left me wanting a new level after the last one. I kept my same rating with an 8 with 4.5 brains. Keep it up! :D

Darn, reading through the Hints and Solutions topics (disgustingly egocentric, I know) I learned about a couple of unintended solutions. Roaches and Roachlikes: 2e.

I'm curious how many people solved it the intended way of

as opposed to

Not a big deal, it just goes to show how hard it is to find easy solutions to rooms you've always beaten the hard way, not to mention the linear way.

I did that room (whilst HAing) the intended way the first time through...and then used the alternate way for optimization purposes.

I always thought the idea for that room was to use the "unintended solution".

Back to the hold. Well, personally I don't like timing rooms, but this hold is not bad at all. And I did enjoyed it (at least the version on Architecture, which has a lot more "shortcuts").

6.5 difficulty, 7 overall. This is a good hold with some creative puzzles, although I do have the strange feeling that I've done all your rooms in an unintended way. :)

Here's another fairly easy hold, which is also quite fun.

The first level is nice and relaxing, most of the puzzles being hack-n-slash. It looks pretty good too. Now I actually thought that the hold would end here, but then came the second level.

The second level contains several effeciency puzzles, nothing too tough, but not as easy as Roaches and Roachlikes. 1N1W was my favourite room here (and I beat the fuse :P)

Overall, a pretty good hold. Beginners should definitely play this, and try to beat the first level at least. More experienced delvers might not have as much fun, but it's a good diversion from the tougher holds.
