Dr. Doak's Dilemma

In this puzzle you play Dr. Doak, on his way to rendezvous with 007 and hand him that door decoder thingy. Anyway, Doak takes a wrong turning in the facility and ends up in one of General Ourumov's sick puzzles. Hurry up and make that rendezvous!

Thanks for your comment. I'm glad you took the time to solve and more importantly, enjoy, my puzzle.

I spent approximately 3-4 hours solving this test... But in the end, it was worth it. For me it was difficult to figure out which switch or button activates which apparatus, because the "route dots" were a little bit confusing.

Thanks for your comment Ape! I agree I went overboard with the buttons and switches in this map xD Logically though you can't do one thing before doing another in this puzzle so its one to just stop a second and think about :)

Now this is a puzzle, especially in the beginning! So confusing where to start and what to do, but the more you explore the more you understand, with some trial and error of course ;) Once you get into the motion of things the rest becomes easy. I could've said that the ending could've been harder, but with all the frustration most users will have in the beginning, the "easier-it-gets" progression is actually nice. Outstanding job, mate! Ate! Ape!? xD

Thanks for your comment! Is antlines the proper name for them? Cool.

I've found a few other exploits myself but unfortunately I can't edit my map anymore after reinstalling Windows a few months ago. Oh well, I'll chalk this one to experience and carry the knowledge onto future maps.

I'll check out your map thanks :)

That's one huge, beautifull test chamber. Obscure and confusing sometimes (so many antlines!), but in the end, everything made sense. Took me quite a while, difficult but really enjoyable. Good work sir !

Exploits I've found :
There is a way to get the mirror cube earlier, by using portal tunneling, making it possible to skip half the test. There is also a way to slide a portal between the wall and the glass pannel near the exit door, making it possible to send the ball on the exit button as soon as you collect it.

Thanks for such a kind comment! I wanted to get that balance just right :)

I'm not going to lie to you - this puzzle is one of the best I've played. A perfect balance between enjoyable yet also difficult. Keep up the good work!
