The Red Herring is a puzzle type that disguises the real solution through deceptive room design and misdirection. This forces the player to try numerous solutions until the true one is discovered, although this can be hard to do especially if the real solution is difficult and is accidentally seen as impossible. This puzzle type was popularized and extensively used for the first time in the map Illusion, although it has been only sparingly utilized in other later maps.
