Round and Round
As an accomplished Portal and Portal 2 player, I felt confident in my ability to get through this game without needing to buy all the solutions to the puzzles. For what appears to be the majority of the game, I had succeeded. Until I finally reached the puzzle just before getting the Multi-Gun called Round and Round. I tried and tried and could not wrap my head around this puzzle because every which way I looked at it it did not work. So, with no other option available to me, I yeilded and bought the solution...

And then it kicked me in the teeth by doing exactly what I had attempted and established was impossible, jumping over the broken glass bottles. WTF?! Even after seeing the puzzle solved, I attempted to duplicate the process myself and failed, repeatedly. How in the name of F did the computer clear the glass bottles when every attempt I make lands me squrely in the middle of them?

Yeah, I had some trouble with that myself, considering the solution is pretty much given - you need to use the rotation gateway gun on the TWO places where you can actually put them down. It takes a few tries, and it's tedious that you have to climb up there each time you die completely - but I'm quite certain you can jump across

when it's something like this, except you need to be a bit cautious that you'll fall directly into the spikes. If I recall, if you're pressing the left key continuously while you're falling through, you fall where you have to - but I don't remember this perfectly, and I'm already past it, and I did not record it.

If you hesitate going into the rotation portal the second time, you'll either die to the glass or fall through the gateway barrier. But if you just hold down left and make a break for it, you build enough momentum to clear the two gaps easily.
