From the Diary of Edgar Allan Poe - April 15th, 1829

Although it is a bit tedious at times, I have developed a knack for designing these test chambers. In fact the president of the company, Cave Johnson, happened by while I was designing my latest chamber and was quite impressed.

It was a small map with several faith plates and a timing mechanic that ended in a devious momentum jump. Master Johnson was so taken aback by it he decided I should be the lead designer of all Section #88312 Sub-part A Division 12 ½.

Perfect timing skillz puzzle. Didn't even try to finish, just not my kind of puzzle. Nice design though.

Hi there. Me again.

I felt a bit like 8-Bit64, about the timing and execution of the puzzle.
I also think that the most glaring misconception here is that it is very hard (if not impossible) to leave the orange funnels without dying, especially if you are near the top. I died 3 times due to this. First while exploring the map, second, to be sure I could rant about it (xD) and third, accidentally, when I stepped on the cube's faith plate unintentionally.

Besides that, I have nothing else to point my finger at. I did manage to avoid part of the timing by pressing the button multiple times and waiting for the cubes to position themselves , only then I would use my own faith plate to fly to the target.

This is a fairly simple map, but I did enjoy myself (if you cut out the half a dozen times I died xD). The criss-cross of the cubes' path is unexpected and fun.

But the cleaning robots will come and take my remains out from under the acid and eat it.

Wait a minute, there arn't any robots on this level.

That was honestly really good, being dumped and turning into robot food. What's funny though is that I saw, the cubes the second time that I dawned. Meaning I died twice before, I understood how to get to the door.

8-bit64, thanks for the honest feedback and suggestions. I will revise to make it easier to get back from other faith plates. That was definitely an over-site on my part. I have added you Dichotomy map to my queue and will post feedback as soon as I get a chance to play it. Thanks again.

Abstract, thanks for the comment. Glad you liked it. I left feedback on your map, Serendipity.

On one hand, it's fun to fly through. That's for sure. On the other hand, the timing was a little bit annoying for me. I knew what I had to do around my 3rd or 4th trip on the faith plates, and it took me around another 6 attempts to get all the timing right. I'm not a big fan of tweaking my timing to perfect. I don't like those kinds of puzzles, and that's what the entire chamber involved. I didn't rate it, because my dislike for timing puzzles would have been a biased vote.

Oh, and I would make it easier to get back if you accidentally take a cube's faith plate. I did that, and it was tough to get back.
