The Cage

This started out being much more complicated, but I found a shortcut I liked so much that I took everyting else out. If you want to get across the gap then you're going to have to use a few unusual angles.

Update 2013/2/18: Made it more clear which surfaces are necessary.

Update 2013/2/25: Bigger is better.

Update 2013/3/1: Missed a shortcut, renamed because it now looks like something they would use to hold Magneto.

Update 2013/6/07: Relentlessly broken over and over again by Prototype

You're really tempting me to just take the coward's way out and make the walls smooth.

Luckily I haven't hit the maximum amount of glass yet.

Not yet you won't :P here is my 9th alternate solution: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vkiwe4fqhd7j9th/thecage9.dem (more good tricks inside)

Dang, I thought I finally had you. Those were pretty good tricks.

Got another update. I will make you use that stupid speed gel!

Well...you had me defeated for quite a while, but eventually I've managed to come up with yet another solution that doesn't use the speed gel. :P

This one really required some thinking outside the box (quite funny since I'm in a glass "box"), hope you like it, here is my demo https://www.dropbox.com/s/827c6n2a6bbnsf0/thecage8.dem

Curses! I thought I had that blocked but you threaded the needle. The very clever second half of your solution makes it moot anyway.

Okay, I think I've seen the light now. Try this one.

Glad you like my little angle trick :) because it features in this even easier solution (the solution takes less than half the time the last solution took to execute). https://www.dropbox.com/s/tm41vopyvlfa6cu/thecage7.dem

Also note that I make use of a portal location that could be called a glitch, this is to show it to you, the same solution still works using the normal portal surface next to that. (this will make sense after you watch the demo)

Well, it's not exactly aligned, or there wouldn't be a hole.

I spent some extra time banging around, and also trying to figure out exactly how you got gel on the floor next to the exit. That's a pretty good trick. Now I need sleep.

Have you fixed it? It's because of the way the puzzlemaker inserts glass, aligned with the edge of the square you put it on.

Aw, what the hell? Expletives deleted.

I believe your glass has holes in it :P https://www.dropbox.com/s/vnye32kfou19knn/thecage6.dem (you've prevented most of the simple solutions...so now it's on to the tricky ones :)
