A short hold centred around pushing mirrors over spike traps. Timing is frequently tight, but solutions aren't too exact.

This hold doesn't seem to be getting many explorers with all the holds released in the past couple of months and it's a real shame. Shards is a super polished and highly enjoyable smallish hold that's worth checking out. The spike trap & mirror theme has a lot of potential for variety, and Someone Else manages to really explore that potential in just a few rooms. There's a ton of variety here, ranging from manipulation puzzles to timed efficiency rooms to more linchpin based puzzles, and even a horde room or two. The hold has an open format so you can explore it at your leisure, but all of the rooms here are enjoyable and the variety offered really makes the whole thing feel very fresh. I was left wanting more at the end, but this hold really is a great size. Short enough to complete in one go so long as you have a little bit of time. Nothing was brain meltingly difficult, but there were definitely some tricky rooms that were quite satisfying to complete. There's really no reason not to check this one out, it's a lot of fun and has a little bit of something for everyone.
