Great, straightforward map! Thumbs up!

Sick map! Well done!

If only I could see this chamber before some test I couldn't figure out...

i gave up, sorry.

There's, what, 4 elements, and you still stumped me. I gave it a thumbs-up even before solving it. This must be really clever :)

Yeah, I know. A very simple puzzle is cool when it's a novelty, it can't be exciting the second time. To my defense I did not copy from another map when I made this one.

Saw that idea before and at the first time it was pretty cool for me. Another time and feelings are different. Still an ok map

Really nice, especially because I figured it out.

Very nice. These tricks are hard for me but at least now I know to look for them. Took a little time. After I finished, I watched mood3rd's walkthrough and I did it a little different. I did a simple bounce between portals on the floor and shot one at the lightbridge as I passed through. Immediately caught myself with a portal on the other side. Probably not intended but as they say, any port in a storm. Thanks. How about trying my Childish Things .

I've seen this idea before in someone elses map so I found the solution quite quick, still a good simple puzzle.

Finally understand this one after playing some other tests, nice.

Genius. Thanks.

Nicely done. Difficulty 4/10 Design 10/10

Dissonance indeed. Even after solving it (and I couldn't do that without help) I'm still not sure what happened. O.o

I strongly recommend playing non-spoiler videos 1st.

good map / puzzle.
I could not do it a while ago.
but today, a couple of mins & it just clicked.
even the execution, which is tricky.

but it is hard
Juggler Jan 4, 2013 @ 10:21pm 
Wow, I really enjoyed this one. :)

Flying up through the ceiling is a mechanic I almost never see, and it's really well used here in combination with the fall-out-of-and-into-the-same-portal trick.
RAINGOD Dec 16, 2012 @ 10:12pm 
Requires a tricky move, but I got it after a few tries. Nice puzzle!
errolhenry10 Dec 13, 2012 @ 11:05am 
sorry:(
toncica  [author] Dec 13, 2012 @ 10:33am 
what?
errolhenry10 Dec 13, 2012 @ 10:30am 
to hard how do you get to exit and get 2 cubes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Andi Oct 25, 2012 @ 2:43pm 
Still, it's a very nice chamber. Thumbs up.
toncica  [author] Oct 25, 2012 @ 2:41pm 
@Mr Vapour Waterhandle, played it now and it is indeed very similar. What a bummer. Apparently the idea was used even before that by someone else as I read on the TWP forum.
Andi Oct 25, 2012 @ 2:40pm 
I like it. I knew what I had to do almost from the start but it took about 15 minutes to figure out how to execute it correctly. I knew I had to fling onto the light bridge but how to get it out there. I kept thinking "I need two cubes" but alas, it can be done with one.
toncica  [author] Oct 25, 2012 @ 2:19pm 
I have not played the map you refer to yet. Will do that immediately. And there I thought I could do something original for once. Well...
Mr Vapour Waterhandle Oct 25, 2012 @ 2:18pm 
I retried it and I'm pretty sure I did now what's intended. same as before, only go through the ceiling wall so you have a portal on the ceiling and are on the light bridge side, then get the light bride and jump down while quickly portalling the grated wall to have your bridge. In retrospect, I had thought of that solution after I finished the map, I thought it might take a lot of reflexes, but it isn't all that hard to do, so that's nice. I kind of liked the other solution to though, it's not something I have done before in a portal map. The solution as it is now is similiar to Pearly by El Farmerino. But in any case a nice puzzle, I love minimalism like this.
toncica  [author] Oct 25, 2012 @ 1:25pm 
It is not exactly the way I wanted it to be. Before I shrunk the chamber it wasn't possible to see the large portal surface on the wall opposite the exit when standing on the button on the light bridge side, and there still was portal surface on the ground too (compare to complex version). So the grating there was added in the first place to prevent your solution, which I think is less elegant. I now have also added grating to the surface you used but I think you will immediately find the other option as it is pretty close.
Mr Vapour Waterhandle Oct 25, 2012 @ 11:43am 
Here's how I solved it: use portals to get the cube past the fizzler on the button of the light bridge side. Then, place a portal high up on the wall there, and the other on the floor on the far end, where the portable strip is on the wall and the portable wall on the ceiling. Then I went in and replaced the portal I came out of to have two portals on the floor, with momentum. Then, in that position, when coming out of the non light bridge side portal, place it on the wall there and quickly get through it before falling down. Then portal the light bridge and the rest is cake. Is that the intended way? Then the portable wall on the ceiling isn't required..

Standard fling is good. Now make it a little non-standard and you got it. :)
Donderbus Oct 24, 2012 @ 3:52pm 
We made a nice little loop :p
Can't figure this out though, but then again my only skills are some standard fling so...
toncica  [author] Oct 24, 2012 @ 3:38pm 
That screams for some good old Romb treatment.
Donderbus Oct 24, 2012 @ 3:25pm 
well, then I don't have any skills :)

Good map. Interesting idea. I have not seen/used momentum like that before.
Leo Oct 23, 2012 @ 2:19pm 
YEAH! Finally solved without hints. :]
Tricky one, great Idea.
