Testing focus: Surface Division Fields
Difficulty: Easy-medium
Expected play time: Not that long
Version: 1.0

To amplify your testing experience, do not start playing here, play Penrose 01 and 02 first for a better understanding of the concept.

This third map makes a little more use of logic regarding the two-way Surface Division Field, and shows how this testing element can produce gravitational faultlines and provide one-way corridors. It also allows for the use of flinging in puzzles, and I hope to maximize this potential in future test chambers. Maps will procedurally get harder as we progress through the test course.

Also, can you find and complete the easter egg? This one is one of my most thorough yet, and took me quite a while to finish. For loyal fans of Hoopy, I put him in there somewhere for you to find!

It took me a while to find time to work on this one, but here it is, Penrose 03. I hope you all won't be disapointed, and I thank you for you patience. ;)

Compared to #2 that was incredibly confusing. I never would have found the second cube without comments.

I accidentally pressed the turret release button. Q_Q

One of the most difficult played until this moment hahah. But I solved it, thinking hardly :d

I swear I solved this before but now I can't... the funnel goes to a non-portalable surface, so there's nothing you can do with it. The room where the sphere drops into the acid has no portalable surfaces so there is no way into it when the cube is not sitting on the button... if I cheat and get the sphere (by jumping and grabbing it as it falls) then I can place the ball on the button, then fizzle it to gain access to a second room with a second cube, but then I'm trapped in a pair of rooms with two buttons and a ball, with no way out because there are no portalable surfaces anywhere.

What am I missing? Enter chamber, ride excursion funnel into next room, place a portal on its wall, go through SDF to the next room, find cube there, bring it back. I can't get a second cube to take into the SDF and get the sphere. I've found the turret easter egg but that's it. I'm really feeling angry and dumb because of this.

i stuck: if u drop the ball on button and fizzle it with the switch u stuck

That was terrific. Much more challenging than Penrose 2. If you feel you are at a dead end: use the roof of the cube generating chamber to re-enter it. If you get to a button you can only click once: jump.

I found an easter egg, a shortcut, and a way ouside of the easteregg area.

Wow, my mind has be bent again! Wild curious physics. Loved it!

the part where where you place a cube on a button with portals is to hard and down to luck :S please fix apart of that the world portals are a bit buggy, but thats not your fault and i dont know if its fixable.
