Solo Player Non-Commit House Designs (For Cullman's Game)

In this thread, post any house design's you can come up with that can be solved WITHOUT commit gates.  The idea is that they will be puzzle levels for the solo-player / introduction part of Cullmans reinvention of the game we love.

Here's a simple one to start with, the (modified) start of my current house, which could be a simple, single screen puzzle house:

Simple cat puzzle:

Didn't make this, but came across it on my travels. One of my favorite finds:
(Note: please replace pits with windows. Durrr)

Same with this one:
(Note: Wired walls on bottom are all decoys)

And this is my (rather inelegant) rehash of that trap:

People love magic dances, right?
(Note: for a slightly harder, but still deduce-able challenge, replace all but the first windows with walls)

…and combo locks?

Okay, now I'm getting a little carried away…

Unrelated: this one's surprisingly fun to solve w/o tools. Give it a try!

Re: Solo Player Non-Commit House Designs (For Cullman's Game)

Here's one that's a bit different - it teaches players to avoid stepping on possibly deadly tiles after seeing a dog. A more difficult variant on this same trap would feature a pit bull instead (so that you can't go and un-press that final button once you've reached the end hallway and seen the final trapdoor).

Re: Solo Player Non-Commit House Designs (For Cullman's Game)

Two more designs.  The first involves a bit of switch play.

This second one teaches the player about the danger of dogs that have seen you and the way they move.

Re: Solo Player Non-Commit House Designs (For Cullman's Game)

A tutorial for voltage triggered switches

And the same switches for a simple lock (fog of war should be on for this one).

Now, an example of an AND gate puzzle, using an inverted voltage trigger switch.  Some other switches and LEDs are included fr the user to play with.

cat pachinko.

green you win
red you're dead

lights are just at the end of your line of sight. the rest is open space so you can check how it works once you've finished it.

This one can be solved without the dog by just crossing the trapdoor in the second row from top.
