4 items
Description
X-RIVER is a very fun little map that must be solved eight times, just cross the river, but the Difficulty increases slowly ! How far will you arrive ?

Difficulty :

(PART 1/2)
# X-River 1 = 1/10 (Easy)
# X-River 2 = 4/10 (Medium)
# X-River 3 = 5/10 (Medium)
# X-River 4 = 6/10 (Medium)

(PART 2/2)
# X-River 5 = 7/10 (Hard)
# X-River 6 = 8/10 (Very Hard)
# X-River 7 = 9/10 (Expert)
# X-River 8 = 10/10 (Master !)

Good luck !

I wonder if I wouldn't like X-River more as a 8-chamber series (or at least 5 chamber series, 1-4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 - or any other combination with 6,7,8 as standalones - to let the harder parts be on their own). It takes long enough to solve them (well, at least part 6 for me) and the player can get bored solving it as so long at once. Which makes them never get to the final puzzle.

I managed to get killed once by a laser :) I forgot it is even possible...

Very smart, geommetrical puzzles.

7 was the moment I decided to give up (or rather I was too lazy to make 6 again after my computer resterted suddenly while I found the basic idea for solving 7). It's cleverly designed but I wish there was more than one autosave possible... Too much geommetry for me. Once I figured how to do part 6, it took me long time to adjust the cubes, especially as due to laser beam it was better to adjust it without final portal to not get dumped by laser.
Watched the solution, 8 is indeed tricky. It would take a bit to figure it.

excellent puzzle!

Puzzles are very good. I hated the claustrophobic laser rooms. Nearly impossible not to get touched by a laser. Saveing progress in this puzzle is needed unless you want to start all over. There appears to be a player trap on the last puzzle. No way to get out from the tractor button area if players visit there...

Good work again, I had to see nr7 (taking to long); in the last (not the most difficult) I forgot some moves of the initial rooms; there is a couple of ways to solve the same room as long as we have the right white surfaces available. nice set of puzzles.

DISCLAIMER:

They are challenging, but this is why I don't like and prefer other puzzles, like the one that I said was my favorite of yours.

@ DeathWish808. I saw your video. This is the first time I see someone solve my map in blind Run, if you liked to play, well I loved watching you, and makes me really happy. You very well understand how X-River works, resolve in just 18 minutes is very impressive ! Well done ! Thank you very much for your video :-)

OK, finished this one and am sad to say that... YOU HAVEN'T MADE A PART 3! LOL.

Wow! I really wasn't sure how you were going to elevate the difficulty without major changes, but you did a fantastic job. Another big thumbs up from me!

Super clever on all of them especially the last one. Definitely had me thinking the whole map through. I have a headache now thanks to you. haha.

@p0rtalmaster - I did see a way or 2 where you could "trap" yourself with the only way out is killing yourself. That said, it's a non-issue for me because you'd have to thoughtlessly put both portals on the exit side (#8) and to fix it would mess things up. (If in doubt, F6)

Well done!

...and possibly part 8 as well. Are any slick tricks needed for parts 6-8 (I'm not talking about speedrunning here)?

I managed to get trapped at part 6....
