Oh I thought when I looked it was 3/5... although it still needs 5 (;

So low? Well 4/5 stars is not so bad XD Maybe people that didn't understand how to use the diversity vent correctly gave up and rated down ^^"

Lots of fun, very original. Took me a while to figure out the last room. Not sure why the ratings are so low on this one.

Well if you missed the expected idea you should une the diversity vent under the fel flow to speed up the gel, then if you place one of the portal at the top of the wall, the gel will reach the angled panel ;)

Of cause I thought of that in the first place, but the gel was not able to catch the angled panel. So I thought of a more skillful test and tried a few times if it would work. After success I accepted that test.

That's a really cool blind run you did there ^^ Sadly you were able to pass room 3 with an unexpected solution... But the idea here was really hard to get if you never played with diversity vents before... To solve it correctly you have to paint the angled panel with speed gel too ;) Will you record another video and try this solution or should I keep this one?
