I liked it! But there are multiple solutions and redundant design elements.

Good job. I enjoyed this map.

@rabejar:
Yes it is simple actually, lol.
Glad u liked it.

Great strategy map! I love that the most obvious solution to each step makes another step impossible. I ended up way overcomplicating things to try and compensate. But, if you think it through, you see that the actual solution is actually pretty simple.

A good map. Had to go away, think about the process,come back and solve. That's always a good sign. Thanks for creating it. Look forward to more. Cheers.

@SKIR! | JESUS:
At the moment I am making 2 collections, one with normal to hard difficulty maps, and the other one is a hard difficulty collection.
Thanks for playing.
SKIR! | JESUS Nov 19, 2012 @ 12:31am 
easier than last one, but still pretty decent. keep it up / make harder maps

No real puzzle here, (there's the exit, there's the button) just figure out the steps. A good map, enjoyable.

Very nice! :) I'm just too stupid to be able to solve it. And no, the door doesn't confuse me. It's the lack of imagination. Voted up!

PS: check out please my newest chamber:

@Calmly Frenetic:
That's because the door is opened when u enter the map. Check it out for yourself, enter the map an watch the exit door; it will be opened. Therefore, when u press the red button on the floor, the door closes and the check mark is displayed stating that the red button is closed by the red button.
The confusion u have is that u think that becuase an exit door has a check mark on it, it means it should have opened, but if it was closed before, it will have closed with the red button pressing.
Hope I was clear on the explanation.
Calmly Frenetic Oct 27, 2012 @ 10:20pm 
The only part that confused me was the exit door indicator - the door was closed when the "tick" was displayed.

@GeoJJx:
Thanks man!

Definitely the best out of the 4, smart trick with the laser! I think this one went quite smoothly for me!
daloboy Oct 23, 2012 @ 8:22pm 
A really good and clever puzzle! Took me a while...!
Please try mine and comment! Thanks.

Very elegant!

@Dreamer ( Portal 2Maping):
Saw the video and it was all intended except the way u got the cube to the funnel....u seem to like throwing the cube, when everyone knows throwing a cube is NEVER an intended solution....nevertheless it's the least important aspect of the map and its puzzles, u did the resto completely correct.
toncica Oct 17, 2012 @ 1:15pm 
Ok, that's fair, should have used spoiler tags. Btw, do you play maps and leave specific feedback other than the copy/paste advertising? If yes, I'd like to hear from you.

sorry removed for spoiler content
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 17, 2012 @ 9:42am 
OK, map updated...now try it out.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 17, 2012 @ 9:18am 
shouldnt be so easy if u tried the intended way...
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 17, 2012 @ 9:17am 
@toncica:
Sorry to seem to be rude....but do u think that tresspasing a cube through a grid is an intended solution? I mean, even every step u made on the solution is like exploiting the map in every way posible....do u do maps without exploits at all?
The exploit helps a lot nevertheless so i can fix it, thanks.
toncica Oct 17, 2012 @ 4:22am 
Nice and easy. Don't need the laser though. Here is my solution: http://youtu.be/-XEYGYg-IwQ

Try this one and tell me if you find it equally easy.

This had me stumped for a while. I could feel the solution squirreling around in the recesses of my head but nothing surfaced. I lost track of how many times I went to the island and back. I took the cube out there. Whew. W hen I saw it, what a relief. Great puzzle.
Jotta Oct 16, 2012 @ 7:31am 
Awesome chamber!
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 16, 2012 @ 12:07am 
@Metzger Ben | GER:
Exactly the intended solution.
BTW, I have seen all your solution videos on my strategy maps on youtube and they are very good solutions, all intended....many maps have changed a bit since u made the videos.
On Strategy 1 u dont need to put the cube on the edge of the red button, the trick works even if the cube is on top of the fred button normally put.
Anyways thanks for all of those videos.

Nice map, original puzzle - it was fun.
Thanks for making

apparently im not that smart cause my wife pretty much walked me thru it. check out my single player ooo faCed. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=101924396

Good Luck!

thanks to all!!!

Cool concept and symphatic design! The only tricky point was the white wall with the lamps: There you have to estimate the exact position....Thumbs up!

Nice map. It was really well designed and the 'aha' moment was very rewarding (like Sleter, I lost my train of thought and had to do a few things twice, but that's just me being forgetful). The map looked really nice too - it was well laid out and gave a few hints as to what the player had to do.

All in all, a really great map. I'm gonna go play some of your other ones :)
Abraxas Oct 15, 2012 @ 1:15am 
Well designed.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 14, 2012 @ 8:04pm 
thanx a lor sleter
Sleter Oct 14, 2012 @ 2:51pm 
Ingenious and well developed !
It was not easy to keep your train of thought and I had to repeat some steps several times but in the end it was very rewarding.
Thanks for mapping !

@Bober RS:
Cool, I will keep doing maps for this collection as far as people play them....and damn do this kind of support help....thanks for all, I do think too that they differ from my other maps like Logic and Cubelessness 2, they are bigger and a lot harder....but this ones are more simple integrated in one piece and elegant.
Thanks for the design comments, I spend a lot of time doing the design stuff so they look good.
Bober RS Oct 13, 2012 @ 2:14am 
I'm really impressed. The series is great! These maps differs from Your previous chambers - they are noticeable simpler, but it's not wrong - they are vastly enjoyable and nice because of their design (yeah, once again I mention this) and structure. For comparsion I'm still trying to solve Cubelessness 2 but I think I'll need a bit more time - it's really a brain teaser!
Continue the collection - it's perfect.

By the way - did You try some of my chambers? Greatly appreciated some opinion.

Don't worry, u were gonna understand sooner or later by pure self-experience.

Sorry, natural you are right :)
And I`m always the first one who is nagging about traps....

Why should I? If I can get out then I go out :)

They are to get back.

Very nice one but I didn't see any sense in the faith plates.

Although hopefully my good friend Mathey here won't mind if I return the favor of "Play my maps people >:)" http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=101674139 Leave a comment or two, feedback is appreciated.

...just kidding dude. Nicely done :) One of your best for sure. Thumbs'd up!

Thanks a lot man, I apreciate the support!

Ok, took a while to complete, some thought, and a few mistakes, but I finally got through. I expect people to like the difficulty level of this map. It's right in that sweet spot of fun and difficult. Keep them coming!
