This is **NOT** a game. It is a difficult puzzle that will require
pencil, paper, and hard work.
It demonstrates the 'Encrypt' facility of CSBuild and provides an
example of a machine-generated puzzle. The 2-D maze was randomly
machine-generated. I chose one from among several dozen that the
computer produced; all difficult but this one more difficult than the
You will find (that is probably a bit optimistic) the ending
unique...whether to your liking or not.
I will be surprised if more than one person manages to finish it. But
it is logical. It is possible to figure it out without recourse to
'Luck'. For example, it took me about three hours to solve the 1-D
puzzle, assuming that I knew nothing to start with and did not
possess any of the items that would have been helpful. I finished with
a page of rather complex-looking (but really very simple) diagrams. I
probably could have finished more quickly by running around at random
but I wanted to be sure it was really 'solvable'. Good Luck.
The dungeon incorporates several features suggested by PitD. Thanks.

I think someosn did a review of the 2-D portion of this dungeon.
(Perhaps PitD?). But I cannot find it.
