Got the cube up to the exit room fairly quickly and I thought, huh, this isn't too hard. Then the real puzzle began... how to get ME up there without a cube to shut off the fizzler. Had to employ a trick required only in community puzzles (not the original Portal games), but did it.

DISCLAIMER:
Read my profile before reading the rest of my comment!

This one was good but I really suck at advanced/expert Portal-1-esque logic, especially where the majority of solving the test requires it. I had to look at a solution video. It just reminds me of the days before Portal 2 was released when all we had was Portal 1 maps created by the community. I end up frustrated and looked for someone else's playthrough.

This kind of chamber is of a different style of solving. I guess you could say I prefer maps with interesting concepts and short maps with not many steps that have up-ed difficulty rather than long maps with many steps that have up-ed difficulty. I say this test is for experts only.

Try my SP map?

Finally thought of the solution after spending a week at home sick. Wasn't quite KennKong's solution, but close enough.

Maybe I was lucky, but I found the solution not too hardly ^^ Pretty clever and precise chain of actions anyway ;)

This is the second chamber i have played of yours, another triumph. Keep the maps coming, im loving the challenge.

Another test chamber solved in my sleep.
baphomet Apr 17, 2013 @ 1:38am 
It is the same as what KennKong did.
Azorae  [author] Apr 16, 2013 @ 11:28am 
Could you upload a demo of your solution please?
baphomet Apr 16, 2013 @ 8:29am 
I am not sure I feel "funnel walking" is a legitimate technique.
baphomet Apr 16, 2013 @ 4:12am 
Nice, but I am not sure I solved this the intended way.
Nalkahn Jan 22, 2013 @ 12:50pm 
Whoa, awesome test chamber !
kavalarika Jan 13, 2013 @ 3:44am 
very challenging, thank you :)
dneufeldt Jan 12, 2013 @ 1:01pm 
Okay, I think this one takes the cake (the one promised by glados)... that was really tough

My solution wasn't the real one that I checked on youtube, but it was close... good map

Nice chamber. It murdered me, so that's always a good sign for chambers. I spent like an hour on it and then quit. The solution came to me later while showering.

I guess I was a bit tricky here... But I liked what I did :)

Thanks to Azorae for another great puzzle and thanks to KennKong for posting a solution!

I gave up this first time after spending a lot of time, but I could escape this test in second time. The entire process of the solution is the most enjoyble and funny among all your tests while it is quite difficult, i think.
George67 Dec 6, 2012 @ 5:50am 
Amazing!!Thank you very much for this brain-cruncher :-D
KennKong Dec 5, 2012 @ 5:37pm 
You hurt my brain! Here's my solution video:

I already asked, but... again: could you post a video of it, or otherwise tell the solution? I have spent more time on it than I was willing to.
elfarmerino Nov 21, 2012 @ 6:59pm 
This is surely one of the best maps I've ever played. Every time you think you've got it, it springs a new surprise on you, while still remaining fairly simple in design. Awesome stuff.
schwartzeroni Nov 21, 2012 @ 2:35pm 
This map is amazing. I can't believe I finally got it, good work!
Stalker Nov 18, 2012 @ 11:37am 
I rather didn't count, how much time I spent on this, but I finally solved it. Amazing puzzle. This map really deserves more votes.
WhereIsBaoDur Nov 16, 2012 @ 11:03am 
Could anyone post a video of it?
johndaggett Nov 13, 2012 @ 12:54pm 
i was stuck for 3 days. there are no hints in these comments. i looked for a youtube walkthrough - nope. so i was forced to keep coming back to it to try again and again. eventually i learned each of the moves needed for success. azorae, your maps are awesome.
esmo Nov 11, 2012 @ 7:51am 
nicely done. cheers
nepumax Nov 10, 2012 @ 5:13am 
Any tipps for me, madvtdm? Have the same problem like you yesterday: My box is there but I can't follow it... :/
madvtdm Nov 9, 2012 @ 11:05am 
Finally got the last part of the puzzle... your puzzles are so well thought, you are incredible. And the satisfaction that comes from solving them without help is amazing. Thanks.
madvtdm Nov 9, 2012 @ 4:25am 
Was able to put the cube in the final chamber but can't get there myself... You really take this game to a whole different level. I still need to figure out how to get there...
sembiox Nov 8, 2012 @ 4:45pm 
Fantasic..had me puzzled right up to the end but as usual everything had a purpose.
Piranha.A Nov 8, 2012 @ 3:07am 
Another beautiful map by you! If I was able to come up with a puzzle like this I'd call it Convoluted for the path to take is like a big clew of thread. Anyhow, it's amazing how many uses you find for one single portal!!! Big thumbs up from me.
NiclO (- - ) Nov 7, 2012 @ 12:18am 
B-E-A-utiful and brrrilliant!
Great map! Thank you! I finally solved it! (4+ hours spread over a week).
You wrinkled my brain!
You are the 3rd person to put me in that much agony. Others are ofc Mevious and Gig!
p0rtalmaster Nov 6, 2012 @ 12:05am 
Yeah. Too bad you don't have as much popularity as him :(
Azorae  [author] Nov 5, 2012 @ 4:11pm 
While we do playtest for each other occasionally, Mevious and I do most puzzlemaking independently. :) Although, it's nice to be compared to someone of his high caliber. Thanks!
p0rtalmaster Nov 5, 2012 @ 2:53pm 
I swear you are the source of Mevious' genius. This one took me some time to solve. It's a balance between thinking with portals, and thinking with funnels :P
CoachHines Nov 3, 2012 @ 12:08pm 
Brilliant....again.
tuyuqas Nov 3, 2012 @ 4:38am 
I... I... I have no words to say. GEEEEEEEEENIIIIIIIIUUUUUUSSSSSS!!!! And i solved it ALL BY MYSELF!!! I'M SO PROUD OF ME!!! :D (after several days of thinking, of course). As always, absolutely brilliant, Azorae! Magnificent! Thank you soo much!
kx Nov 2, 2012 @ 8:22pm 
Quality! Maps are parallel only to Mevious. Keep it up!
Azorae  [author] Nov 1, 2012 @ 3:31pm 
Thanks a lot! I have a lot more puzzles in my collection if you'd like to try them.
Djahn Arnie Nov 1, 2012 @ 12:14pm 
Jesus! I got it!!! Woohhoooo, damn this is the most challanging map I've ever played! Oh, I cursed the cube for not falling into the f**king hole :D
Really, you are insane for figuring this one out! Best wishes.
Djahn
Gig  [author] Nov 1, 2012 @ 10:43am 
Damn, this one was hard to fix :D
Djahn Arnie Nov 1, 2012 @ 7:38am 
sorry, I tried it for hours. Is this really playable? I have no idea, how to solve it.
RadolovGrabadjetski Oct 31, 2012 @ 6:44am 
When you finally figure this one out.....great map
