The fourth and final installment of my "Mind" puzzle series has finally arrived. Even though my "Mind" series was quite good and popular (The series having over 20,000 downloads total between 4 maps), I always felt that that my maps never properly represented my potential. There was always a couple of challenges in them that I thought "I can do better than that". Then when I did my part on Paratroxity and really took the time to carefully map out my challenges, the result was something that I could proudly stand behind. So I thought, I really need to make my own puzzle map for Sandbox, as all my individual maps were on Foundry, and Paratroxity was a collaborative map so I couldn't call it my own. That's when I decided to do the fourth "Mind" map, my final individual puzzle map (puzzles are just too hard and time-consuming to make). And since it was going to be my final map I decided to really take my time with this one to make sure that every challenge is top-notch. I wanted to make sure that my challenges were not only unique and difficult, but also very enjoyable. Well the result is that this map took a whopping four months to make, much longer than I ever expected. But it was worth it because now I have a map that I will gladly allow to represent my skill as a puzzle maker. DOWNLOAD MIND CRYPT DOWNLOAD TRAPPED GAME VARIENT The Facts -Because I planned out the entire map before I took it to forge, I was really able to drastically increase the length of the map by building most challenges off of eachother. This map is HUGE, it contains over 30 challenges and is quite possibly the biggest solo puzzle map of all time. -Every single one of the challenges is new and original. This is the main reason this map took four months to make, I spent much of that time coming up with completely unique puzzles, and figured out how I could connect them together. I also scraped a lot of ideas that just weren't as fun as the others. (BTW there isn't a single bubblesheild/kill ball combination in the map) -This map is designed to be beat by one person, but it's also a lot of fun to do with some friends (up to four). Although having friends may make some challenges slightly easier to pass. -The proper game varient is absolutely required. -I really concentrated on making the map fun to play. I did my best to make the challenges as epic and enjoyable as possible. -The checkpoint system is both unique and very handy. Most checkpoints do not involve unblocking teleporters, and the checkpoints are well spaced-out between challenges. I also made sure to put checkpoints directly after difficult challenges, so that once you pass them you won't have to do them again. -There are no ghost jumps, or any really difficult moves incorporated into this map. The challenges are harder to figure out than they are to do. This is my personal preference to puzzles as I find it very frustrating when you know what to do, but just can't do it. -There is a bonus: find and get to the flare. (I was going to have a prize, but the answer got leaked out). I will still put up a reserved spot for the first person to get it legitly. The first person to find the flare is:ActualGlory -Forging 101: >Interlocking >Geomerging >Pressure switches There is a huge amount of interlocking on this map, the most extreme example being a single object that is interlocked with 18 other items! -Ironically even though its name is "Mind Crypt" none of the map takes place in the crypt. I named it that for 2 reasons: 1) For it's association with Sandbox and 2) The majority of the map looks like it's taking place in a crypt as there are numerous small passages and confined rooms.

Challenge 2 Dump your excess through a crack And you may get something deadly back. Challenge 3 You’re stuck in a room that seems like it can only hurt you Here unhesitant courage is your most helpful virtue. Challenge 4 A bigger room now that’s much more revealing, To find a way out look to the ceiling. Challenge 5 You passed through a deadly fire, but now your trapped in, So you need to find a way to make the impossible happen. Challenge 6 This next challenge consists of not one but two stunts You can do them in any order or even both at once For step one you must unblock And in step two you must unlock. Challenge 7 There is a problem for you to fix So use your tool from challenge six Your chances of survival may be darker But you can improve them using the marker. Challenge 8 If you have succeeded with unlocking Then you can do some more unblocking You will undoubtedly find your new toy Which you must use twice with one deploy. Challenge 9 You should be carrying an extra item to throw, But you will not need it here, Instead use what’s up above to get down below And destroy the nuisance near. Challenge 10 You’re back to where you were before, But now equipped with something more, Here knowledge of location should be applied, So your item can benefit you on the other side. Challenge 11 A test of time to clear the blockage, A test of courage to cross the bridge. Challenge 12 Is there more bark than bite? Maybe a little, But it'd still be best if you stuck to the middle. Challenge 13 First you must set the bubbleshield loose, Then find a way to preserve the mongoose. Challenge 14 To get to the freed item, a familiar path must again be tried, Find a way to die on the ledge in the room of your first suicide. Challenge 15 You should have protection in a new place if you didn’t make a blunder, And now you can use it to create a path that’s safe from Heaven’s thunder. Challenge 16 Careful listening is what this challenge is all about, Wait for a large explosion before finding your way out. Challenge 17 You may find the new way to go, and certainly feel free to take it, But you’ll need to supply yourself for the future if you want to make it. Challenge 18 This challenge does not require any sort of perk, Only the knowledge that the physics here don’t work. Challenge 19 Danger will be upon you before you can hardly catch your breath, Quick reflexes and a hoarded item should save you from certain death. Challenge 20 To find a way in look for a purple marker that’s partially fused, And getting the checkpoint will require something you just used. Challenge 21 Now you have to find some way to get back to the start, Damage right after healing begins is an essential part. Challenge 22 It won’t be long before you notice there is a new afterlife, And that a quick reaction will help you pass the next strife. Challenge 23 You’re up in a new place but I hope you brought a guest, Because you’re going to need to free a bird from its nest. Challenge 24 Now you need to find an item that will make your range greater, And destroy something non-explosive below to help you out later. Challenge 25 Repeat challenge twenty-one and the start of twenty-two, But this time use your guest to get to someplace new. Challenge 26 23 will have helped you out with the first part of this as reckoned, And puzzle 22 will have provided your escape from the second. Challenge 27 You have never been so free in this puzzle as you are now But you need to get to the skybubble. The question is: How? Challenge 28 From freedom to a cage, advancing requires the right angle, And then you'll have to find the way out of this whole tangle. Challenge 29 Through a dangerous checkpoint to get to the next part, Where there is beauty to behold, but where do you start? The most important hint of this speech Is that every item has a different reach. Challenge 30 This hint is a subtle guide: First find something concealed, Then use it twice to get inside, And quickly grab that overshield. Challenge 31 Knowing that the final path is clear should really brighten your mood, But beware as Heaven’s wraith may have not been completely subdued. Bonus Hint: Not knowing where to start a quest can sometimes be quite dull, So I’ll tell you that the hunt for the flare begins with the other skull. Note: Many of the hints cover multiple challenges so If it seems like you should be on the next challenge, but according to the hints you're not, don't sweat it.
