I have posted a new version, which eliminates replay problems due to master walls. Enjoy, and please comment!

It's interesting. I can tell what type of puzzles you like. You really like bombs, don't you. ;)

All my scores are still there and they are several months old. Are you sure you haven't just noticed something that happened a long time ago?

I concur with Wallu.
There are 2 versions. One I've downloaded, and the other marked "not downloaded".

Checking the scores for the one I've got (38 explorers) reveals that all my scores have disappeared too...

The only reason that the updated hold is in the end of the list instead of in the form of an 'Updated!'-message is that the name of the hold changed. It's still the same hold (well, ok, it's an updated version, but still the same hold).

I'm in the same boat as Wallu.
Should we download the newly named one ? will that over write the other one ? My high scores have disappeared...

Hmmm... confused.

I've d/ld it and now have 2 journey to the goblin kingdom.
One is version 1, and the other is version 1.5.

Originally I only had v1.5.

Now, if I change location to 1.5 I can still restore to anywhere I've been. In the newly downloaded version 1, it thinks I've never played it. In the Caravel.net high scores I see only version 1 listed.

And I've lost all my high scores...

Is there a bug here maybe ?

Ok, I dont know if this is where this post is supposed to go, but I recently finished Journey to the Goblin Kingdom I, and according to the restore screen I completed 100% of the level. However, on the change location screen it says Ive completed only 88% of the hold. What is going on here?

Thanks!

The 100% you see in the restore screen just means you have visited every room on the level you are looking at. The 88% in the change location screen means you have completed 88% of the secrets in the hold.

The master wall that goes nowhere; the force arrows on room entrances; and above all, the guess-the-scripting rooms... I didn't hate the hold, but I have to admit I kind of disliked it. There were nice bits, I admit; overall, for me, a 4.

Yeah, a bug with the download tally with several holds :) Very good hold though in my opinion...

I'll try it, but, looking at the comments, I'm guessing something is really wrong, here. Because I saw a list that shown that this was the number 1 downloaded hold. There was another at 130000 downloads that shouldn't have that high a number, either.

Those number is waaaaaay above the number of registered users. But I guess the downloaders have had some problems. And perhaps some people were, like, playing Maple Story and trying to do beat everyone else into a party quest and then . . . um, alt+tabbed out and forgot to turn off thier autoclickers first . . . I don't know!

I have returned to say that, yes, something is really wrong here. This is definitely a "first hold." Undoubtably. It's a "first hold" with rooms full of trivial solutions (sometimes you don't even know the intended solutions, because the trivial is so obvious). It should not have the highest number of downloads. And not by that much.

*Shudders.* Reminds me of Strawberry Clock. Why is he the king of the portal? WHY??? What terrible society is this? Where's my Doritos?

Loved this hold. Lots of relatively easy combat rooms that were rather interesting to play. Some good rooms to test my optimizing mettle as well.

A few things I didn't like: the haphazard scripting in some rooms, the use of force arrows on some room entrances, the overuse of bomb rooms (like the easternmost secret room in King Dugan's Castle). But none of these detracted much from my overall enjoyment.

4 Brains and 7 Overall I give this hold.
