Hi everyone!

Here's the puzzle I've been using as an example for the past few Eets Weeklies. I've managed to correct some of the problems that I pointed out in the Puzzle Maker Guide, Part I.

It's a nice little puzzle, still incomplete, but it needs your help! Scared Marsh Bud

I can think of at least two problems with it, but is there anything else you can suggest to make it better? Is it too short, too easy, or...?

Well, I found three alternates. One's ridiculously obvious and you definitely know about it, but I'll post it anyway along with my other two.

Second one. Still pretty obvious.

The third, a little more obvious than the second.

Anyway, I know quite a few ways to fix these problems that wouldn't make the puzzle any easier. I would recommend locking the Choco Cannon and adding a few pieces of decor that restrict the placement of the exploding marshmallow so that it has to be triggered by a chocolate chip and not just by dropping it.

While I'm at it, I think this puzzle has some really awesome concepts.

I too have some solutions. They are quite similar to minmays, but not totally. Here's a PC.

Thanks for the feedback!

I've made a few tweaks to the puzzle (well, mainly adding decor and locking the Choco Pump)

Tell me what you think!

Thanks again for the feedback!

I basically added a bush and turned eets around, just to make the star more useful this time. Wink

I'm thinking it's almost ready to be published, unless anyone has any objections.
