Description
Aren't you tired of those boring days in the Aperture observation rooms when there's just not enough test subjects?
Don't you want to become part of the action?

Especially now that there's this new prototype of the portalgun? The file says that portals shot with that gun emit force ... how cool does that sound?

Anyhow, your job is behind the desk! So don't try anything stupid!!!

PS: Video walkthrough available.

Wow, it's nice to see that this map is still played every now and then :)

It was my first real Hammer project and, true, it does require agility. I wouldn't call it Ninja but that's obvously a matter of opinion. Anyhow, as nice as the Portal Force Gun may be, it is difficult to come up with puzzles that don't require fast reflexes beause it introduces a lot of momentum to the chambers.

Thanks for playing and commenting!

Nice concept, a bit too "ninja" for me, but that's solid.

I've never reached the top button in the big room, part 1. Used orange portal on top laser-field surface to get some height, blue portal on grate-surface behind button, and threw the cube throught the grate from floor.

Sorry to hear that, temporarymanwastaken. Thanks for the comment though.

Too much agility required. Neat idea, but you should be testing that players aren't too frustrated. I screamed and swore at my computer too many times playing this to give it a thumbs up. Not satisfying, just a pain.

I would love to use this for mapping! Obviously would credit you for it. I tried the 2nd map out, I admit I cheated a lot. Just couldn't find how to get those cubes out no matter what I did.

But yeah, if you don't mind, I would love to use this in some maps. I have been completely editing PeTI's instances as well as trying to make a whole map in Hammer.

Thanks LPChip!
I admit: the pressure to build another map is increasing ;)

PS: You are aware that there is a sequel called PFG 2 - Learning Curves, right?

Nice map! took me quite a bit to get used to the mechanics and get past the puzzles, but it works reall. I agree with hellraiser, would be awesome to see more tests

Thanks a lot, Hellraiser! But I'm not sure if I'll ever get to making another chamber with the Portal Force Gun. It's rather difficult to come up with good puzzles for it. However, if you're ever making puzzles in Hammer I'll gladly provide you with the instance for the gun ;)
