Description
Play with the funnel's polarity-swapping ability to navigate this short but sweet chamber.

Not even close to my first-ever map, but my first completed one in the new editor. Based on a design I made a very long time ago in Hammer, but never did finish due to technical dificulties.

Update 1.1:
-Added grates to some of the portal surfaces (makes it harder to get sent back to the start accidentally during the second segment)
-Moved the cube button to be more obvious/require the funnel for use
-Added a way back to the start if you get to the end without the cube

Not bad, but really too easy! ;)
If you want to try an hard map, get a look to the mine! ;) :)

Maybe a bit too easy? But still fun. Would benefit from being a bit longer with some more polarity switching.

not hard at all but a bit of fun

I liked this map. I was stumped for a few minutes (because I stupidely tried to go in the excursion funnel and grab the cube while it was bouncing on the faith plates) but once I figured it out, it was pretty easy.

Fun, but not all that difficult. 4/5

Finally updated. It's now possible to get back to the start from the end of the puzzle. The cube button at the end is also obvious before you get to it now, rather than when you round the final corner (i.e. it's too late to do anything about it).

I did like the others, forgetting the cube near the end, however I didn't have to suicide, I just redirected the portal and did some source parkour. Was able to return without dying, but there should be a button or something that sends you back to the start of the puzzle in case you forgot the cube. Good map, however not challenging.
