This was an enjoyable level. Not too obscure not too obvious. Fun.

I really liked it, even if you can "cheat" it, I played through the "hard" way and really enjoyed it.

One more comment then I'm done for now: if you *do* think that it's too easy to discover the alternative solution now and want to change the level to accomodate, then completely closing it off isn't the only option: you could also just make it harder to find. (For example, replace the light bridge with a different way up: perhaps a pulling funnel.) Walking on the laser grid emitters and the light bridge aren't the only ways to get atop the cube. :-)

Keep in mind the sub-10-second solution to Portal 1's chamber 14 (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wMaurcXM6w), which Valve deliberately left in. That sort of thing *enhances* the game, not detracts from it. I played this level way more than I would have if there wasn't a cheeky solution through it. :-)

Actually you don't even need to use the light bridge to complete the puzzle... you don't even have to enter the cube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TypIyr4LYBw

However, I'm not sure how important it is to "fix" it. I'm a big fan of alternate solutions even if they're shortcutty. The question you should ask is how easy is it to discover that solution, not whether it's possible in the first place. If it's something people besides Mevious will get on their first playthrough, then it's worth patching. If it's something that basically no one will discover until a second playthrough, then I think it's usually worth keeping.

Easy but very fun.

You really should fix it so whatever the last step is supposed to be = triggers the exit door to open. Leaving the exit door open permits bypassing the whole puzzle via the light bridge.

I'm reminded of a similar chamber involving a gigantic companion cube. This one, however, successfully adds a level of suspense to the concept by forcing you to literally watch your step. All I've got for my latest one is a hallway and many small floating "cubes"; not the ones your thinking of though. I prefer to call them blocks in this case.

Yeah, nice work for a short time of fun in a cube! :)
If someone wants to feel more special and being more challanged, like in the movie, I would recommend my PortCube.
You are also invited for all of my other challenging testrooms.

Good - but a few places where you can actually get stuck... for instance if you accidentally lose a laser-redirection cube (in my case because the previous portal was still kicking about and I accidentally dropped it through it thanks to a mis-click) - a few emancipation grids will sort that out though by removing the previous portals :) xD

You can cheat the puzzle by just using the hardlight bridge to get to the end quicker. Other than that interesting idea for a puzzle.

Not sure I solved it as intended. Took about 2 minutes. Check out my floating "Cube" puzzle:

Great puzzle! I enjoyed this one very much. I thought it was going to be ultrafrustrating but it just went in a different direction than I thought it would. Great work!
