Needlessly Complex

It all sounds so simple: solve the puzzle and move on to the exit. Until this happens. Now it isn't a hard test, but it sure is Needlessly Complex.

Revision 1: Fixed the early-escape part where you could escape within 30 seconds, also removed a part that could trap you like a rat in a cage, and added some additional useful stuff.

Revision 2: Fixed the portal-bumping exploit that allowed you to skip the complex part of the room, thanks to Justinian for pointing that out.

I wouldn't have said it was overly complex, if anything it's one of the simpler puzzles i have played and thats not a bad thing at all. It was fun to play and I thought it was a well thought out test.

Hey there Zulway, first of all: thanks for playing and leaving a comment. Second: Complex is not necessarily difficult ;-)

I had the same problem that some other people had where the ball would be dropped and I'd have to go and find it again....as far as the "Needlessly complex" part, I don't think that it was too difficult at all.

no thinking required. Why do people upvote this crap?

Could be a bit harder.

Not too complex. It's a pretty linear puzzle. Doesn't require too much sideways thinking.

Ball can be left behind accidentally, just before the jump back to the upper hall. Then there is no way to get it back, or drop a new ball. Got stuck without a way to fix my dilemma.

Nice room. I used portals to get back to the main room too. I like it when there are multiple ways (whether intentional or not) to solve a puzzle.

used portals instead of faith plate to get back into big room, but was fun

Nice re-use of objects. Entertaining but not too difficult. Well done!
