Gel technique.

I really playtested this test chamber thoroughly and think I found most of the possible exploits. Please let me know if there are any missed exploits in this map! Akso please let me know if there are any problem areas!

Medium difficulty.

My first four chambers were not nearly as good as what I try to come up with today.

Potential problems:
> If a cube gets lost late in the play, it's kinda punishing to the player.
> The fling path got to be a bit irritating (probably requires Hammer to fix though).

Hit the grating near the exit close to 95% of the times, found this getting really annoying. Tried several different portal placements, got myself up there just once, which happened to be my first try. Only way I got it done the 2nd time was by adding a jump on top of the angled panel. Even then I needed like 4 tries. I did close to always hit the faith plate though, no probs with that. All the symbols give it a messy 1st impression, but after you take a minute or 2 to observe the chamber, it doesn't seem to be that messy after all. Certainly not a bad chamber :)

One of my favorites. Great puzzles. I liked having to traverse several chambers before I saw a cube. Ingenius delivery system for the cubes. Trial and error getting them to the first chamber. I managed. Great ending. All the chambers looked good. Hope you'll find time for another of mine.

Yeah, I found that to be a problem too when testing it. In its current spot gives the best results, believe it or not. The puzzle editor doesn't give me much control of that, unfortunately. That is why I give test subjects a little extra room on that wall with the target to reposition the portal. It works when positioned right.

Very nice test chamber, after ages of trying I finally got through it... the faith plate could be one or two blocks closer, I missed it about 90% of the time. When I finally hit it correctly most of the time I just smashed against the wall or the edge of the grating -> quite annoying >.<
