You may want to give the entrances to different rooms their own feel. Now most of the time I tried to remember what room contained what.

Most of the time test chambers/maps don't really feel like puzzles, they are more like labour you need to do before getting to the exit, and you can just autopilot through everything. The Shaft wasn't a particularly difficult as a puzzle, but for the first time in quite a while(outside Mevious maps, of course), I felt like I was solving a puzzle. Good job on that. It would be nice to have more puzzles among portal maps.

The last time I wrote a comment on a map was probably for mevious, first map I really enjoyed in quite a while, home run.

I was stumped for a while there until I realized that I hadn't explored all of the rooms. Once I got that out of the way, the test was simple, but not too easy. Nicely done.

Navigation is really off puting. The puzzles are well crafted, but the navigation really set this one back for me.

I liked how the test intertwined with itself especially with the top laser that was interesting. Not too easy, not too hard, and most importantly, very fun. Nice job!

Took me a while to figure the order, nice job.

Excellent job. First easy puzzle to beat my ass so I guess that means it's pretty balanced xD

A great portal map. The first question: What is the puzzle?

Very nice! It was a little easier than it initially looked. Really liked the technique for retreiving the first cube.

I voted up, but I didn't actually like the feeling it gave me of being lost. However, this seemed to be why you made it this way. That's why I voted up.

Good Job.
I liked it.

Nice one. Easy to understand, little harder to do.
hunniekiller Jan 3, 2013 @ 2:37am 
it was not hard but not easy this is a great puzzle this could fit in a portal game except hte shape.

fun map. you get a little turned around going up and down the shaft.
bernardnoir Jan 2, 2013 @ 1:33pm 
Best part about this was that I got twisted around. Really fun and frustrating to go back and forth.

Very Fun! having to go back for the lasers was a good puzzle Good Job!
Nice puzzle, I realy liked the part with the lasers, it really had me thinking for a while :)

Probably not your intended solution!
Please try one of mine and comment!

I felt so stupid when I put the cube on that button to put out that angled surface to make catching the sphere easier. I had already grabbed the sphere by quickly replacing portals and grabbing at it, which took me forever. Really challenging puzzle, good job.

I did this with using the laser cube without lowering all the panels, just fyi.
StandAlone Jan 1, 2013 @ 8:36pm

Muito Bom mesmo, engenhoso e com bom raciocínio
Call Me Scoots Jan 1, 2013 @ 12:43pm 
how do i get custom maps?
Outlaw87 Jan 1, 2013 @ 9:01am 
Hello. You can do it without lowering all the panels in the ground floor. Try to delete the portal faces in this area !
Nevertheless good design.
Deltacrim Jan 1, 2013 @ 8:08am 
Nice!
Black_Adder Dec 31, 2012 @ 7:19pm 
You didn,t need the lifts on the dround floor. It can be done without them.
However it was a cool puzzle.

Nice, a bit confusing, but that's what makes it fun!

This was fun! Very well done.

Got there eventually even if I did it the difficult way by getting the ball first by catching it. Good map though.I should have read your description before doing this map.
