An exchange of redirection cubes and lasers.

It's been a while since I've published a new chamber (not for lack of trying -- I've made at least a dozen attempts at chambers over the past few months that have all ended in messes of unfeasible and/or impossible puzzles or have downright not worked at all) and I'm happy to finally bring a new puzzle to the table. This one's a bit easier than some of my other stuff, but overall I'm satisfied with it. If you like this chamber, feel free to leave a comment and subscribe to a collection that includes all of my chambers, Azorae's Grand Designs. Thanks!

Pretty easy but fun. Nice to see a lack of connections, while still knowing what activates what.

I solved it slightly differently than others. I activated the bridge normally using a blue portal at the laser. Then on the far side of the river I placed a blue portal on the wall so I could quick go in and out to grab the cube to bring it to the far side. I then shot an orange portal over the river to the laser and brought the cube to the laser platform. From there it was a simple matter of lighting up the exit catcher, and going through the portal to the exit.

Great short map. I first found a bizarre glitchy solution based on putting the cube 1/2 way through the portal in the front of the laser. This created some weird effects (e.g. the laser would go through solid walls), but allowed me keep the cube on the same ledge as the laser, cross the bridge and return to the ledge to finish. But there is also a natural `proper' solution, with the cube on a different ledge from the laser.

When I finally got it, I felt dumber than the people who were trying to escape through the air ducts.

Nice map! Neat map to take a "break" so to speak from the more challenging ones. Solution's quite clever as well, I thought somehow you have to portal the laser to the catcher but then I noticed there was no portalable wall, so I assumed you had to make the cube float in midair somehow maybe via a light bridge (lol) which didn't end up happening. That led me to go into the laser room and use the cube to redirect the laser into its catcher, opening the exit. Neat little clever map. Thanks :)

I can't believe nobody has rated this since last December. Easier than most in the Azorae / Mevious pantheon of maps, but better than 90% of the maps out there.

Read my profile before reading the rest of my comment!

I found it kind of easy to do. It works. No problems.

A pet peeve of mine is symboled/hidden links instead of antlines. I guess it doesn't affect the ability to solve. I've seen way worse where it becomes a tedious guessing game. Hidden links work in two cases involving a lot of antlines: If the activated object and activator are right in front of you and activating a "mechinism" (meaning multiple things activated that are in the same spot like several angled panels in a row).

Try my SP map?
Try my COOP map?

Quite easy, not much of a trick to it. Nicely executed though.
