comments: This levelset contains a few 'regular' tricks (not bugs). Only six levels are modified. They are quite short but still enjoyable.

Level 1: There are two swords in this level. The 'easy' one can be picked after running through a guard. The hard one is among spikes where you have to land thanks to a green potion (fun part). The boring part is when you have to drag two guards and kill them on precise tiles. You must master trick 60 (jumping to a lower ledge with an obstructing wall in front of you).
Level 2 : More straightforward. You have to kill a many-hit-points guard without pushing him off the ledge.
Level 3 : Good timing is required after a falling tile falls for more than 10 seconds...
Level 4: Some small tricks and a jump within three chompers quite difficult
Level 5 : Falling tile trick while crouching, straightforward.
Level 6 is more difficult. You need at least 4 HP to complete it (there's a LP if you didn't pick any).
The others levels are unchanged.

Only now found out about this site or that my levels are on it. Good to know. I have actually finished the full 13 level set back in 2016 some 8 years after the original 1-6 levels were released with some changes as well. I have mailed the site admin and anticipate this to be updated.

Also thank you nuzbunt for the analysis and feedback! Would love to hear comments for the full version as well :)

Hi Istaria, I've updated the ZIP package.
(The custom levels number says "12" on this page because 12a and 12b are counted as one on this website.)
Thanks for sending me the updated package.

I appreciate that @dev44. Also, I'd like to point out (in case it wasn't obvious) it didn't actually take me 8 years of work to finish this pack :D More like a few days, I just never got around to it until so much later :)

Thank you to VelCheran/Sheon for updating to v1.4 compatible. Zip should now reflect it and be up to date. Version with fixes from 2020 December.
