Description
The puzzle is 100 % by Dreamer. Difficulty is somewhere between challenging and tough. Some dexterity is required but mainly just brains.

Dreamer released the test a short while ago and I loved the puzzle and the way it is executed. We then had a coordinated effort to streamline the map and to update the visuals. That's why the version here exists. We agreed on the main issues, so the maps look now almost identical and the solutions play 100 % the same on both. Some minor differences come down to personal taste.

If you like the puzzle then head over to Dreamer and let him know:

You're very considerate, thank you. :)
Yes, it's never nice to add more elements just to prevent unintended solutions. In this case it might not be so terrible. As an emergency fix it's fine.

Awesome to hear that you finished intense cake. I hope it was the intended way. Everybody who goes the full way is my hero. :D
I consider that map to be my personal favorite, intense but hopefully it doesn't go too far. It's definitely not getting crazier than that. ;)

np, I just finished your intense version of piece of cake and wasn't able to leave you a "polite" comment before. ;-) Anyway: You are pretty crazy, aren't you?

I saw you changed the map. Sorry that you had to install another fizzler. I could imagine you are not happy with that. Perhaps you could prevent the workaround, if you would make the single portal plate on the left (standing in front of the new fizzler) magnetic. With that it wouldn't be possible to place the portal high enough to bring back the franken cube. But I'm just guessing as I am not designing maps.

Thanks for the screenshot, that cleared up some confusion. I thought I had moved the target of the faith plate away from the portal surface. In fact when I opened the editor file it was as I remembered but for some reason the published map had the faith plate still targeting the portal surface. As for the other trick with the light bridge, I'm not really fond of it because it's not exactly a clean solution in my opinion. I'll think about resolving that issue or maybe I'll wait for Dreamer to return from his vacation to further discuss it.
Thanks for your keen eye. :)

OK, screenshot is in my profile

Just place the portals and walk on the faith plate behind. You will hit the corner of the plateau, but pressing forward will lift you on it.

If you dont manage to push the franken cube out of the funnel with the light bridge, I will make a demo and try to upload it somewhere.

Hm, maybe I was too clumsy while testing. I tried that method and didn't succeed, so I dismissed it as a viable option.
I'd like to see the faith plate screenshot.

Sure I can make a video, but there is nothing I can upload it. :-(
But I dont think it was that tricky, so an explanation should be enough:
I use the light bridge to push the franken cube out of the funnel. The first time I tried it, it worked immediatly, but I now see it's a little bit tricky. After reversing the funnel with the "light bridge jump" you can walk over to the plattform below franken cube, reverse funnel again to bring back the franken cube for a meter or two, then you can push franken cube out of the funnel with the light bridge (second portal on the ceiling). You have to try a bit with the correct angle, but in fact it's quite easy.
PS: The faith plate trick is absolutely easy, I can make screenshot if you want. Dont know if I expressed myself in the commen before well enough as english is not my mother tongue.

Interesting. If your solutions differ on both maps then you must have found an unintended way. Any chance of you recording a demo? Yes, to get the franken cube you are supposed to push/pull the cube out of the funnel using the other funnel. Looks like both Dreamer and I have overlooked something there.
Thanks for playing. :)

Brilliant map, I played dreamers version afterwards, and I like your redesign. I like the light-bridge you took as a barrier instead of the lasers and that you didn't placed portal areas inside the last "room".

My solution for your map was not completely possible in dreamers map. To get the second cube I used the faith plate to jump into a portal and landed on the area with the cube. Don't know if that was intended. But I quite quickly found another solution for dreamers map. But my first way was more funny.

Apart from that I'm a little bit confused of "old Git's" comment as I didnt used a funnel to get the franken cube out of the other funnel. Was that intended?

Updated to final version.

Good to hear, that means the other version should be solid.
