@Polux @Spaceminnow Thanks for playing the map! Unfortunately I don't have a video walkthrough but josepezdj recorded his playthrough a while ago, I'd call his solution intended. You can watch the video here: https://youtu.be/pfNPHuTm1Yo?t=16m29s

Polux recently added this to his favorites. I decided to play it. The first puzzle and design is good :) The second puzzle I solved it what may be viewed as a map break...

Is this the solution?

Ok I went back and solved it the way it was meant to be solved. Brilliant! The UN-intended solution I mentionned in my previous post (sorry about the typo) can be easily fixed by making the left half of the back wall next to the lens dispenser non-portalable. Cheers!

I solved the 2nd chamber but I was able to exit without having to lower the blocking panels and without disabling the fizzler. Probably an intended solution. I placed the light bridge next to the raised platform behind the panels and used the lens to jump onto and then jump onto the platform. Very nice map BTW Fluppy!!

Excellent level, but the music in the second chamber is loud and very annoying

here's the video proof of what i've done and noone noticed my solution, i'm gonna make a speedrun too and post on youtube before you edit this map to prevent my way, this is a .dem file for those who can't handle it, put it under /porta2/portal2 folder and in console command type playdemo gig

SECOND PART WITH ANNOYING INFINITE LOOP MUSIC!!!!! I passed the first part in an unintended way, didn't use the button or the light bridge that it enables.
christian_saw Dec 4, 2015 @ 10:28am 
Ok, it deserved a thumbs up even not knowing the solution, solved the second part with disabling the panels blocking the way for the light bridge, i can say i didn't use the light bridge any close to the way it was meant to. I'm willing to record a demonstration, if you're interested.

Great logic puzzles. Nice design.

Very good puzzle and the work on the design was great. Worked on the second chamber for a long time. When I saw it I was so pleased with myself and impressed with the solution. Favorite and many thanks.

Neat and destroyed, well done !
Nobody No-One Feb 23, 2015 @ 6:16pm 
Ok, the first one was easy. I solved it quickly. But the second one, that was the best AHA! moment I have ever had. Beautiful design of puzzle Gig and Fluppy, liked and favorited.

Nice hammer version of those two GIG maps.
wildgoosespeeder Jan 21, 2015 @ 6:04pm 
Nice Hammer treatment of both Gig's original maps and doing each puzzle a little differently than his originals Fluppy but still keeping the core ideas intact. Can't really say that with Archipelago because when I attempted to play it, it gets a download error. I guess I'll favorite this one.

Now we have two Hammer-fied Gig chambers, the other one being Permabulation:

wow ! :O
Extraordinary puzzle Portal 2
very gratifying find the solution.
Thanks for the creation !

Really enjoyed this one - head-scratching indeed! Second chamber was a real puzzler with a little lateral thought required.
Blazier May 13, 2014 @ 9:25pm 
The second test was really neat. I enjoyed it a lot other than the precision cube placement required (pointing redirect cubes at receivers without a laser) .

I added your map to my new Anthology of community-made gems (an ongoing WIP). You can see it here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=192138122. Thank you for making this map!

Thank you guys, great job!!!
p0rtalmaster Sep 6, 2013 @ 11:14am 
Nice combo...IMO nearly all of Gig's stuff is good and mind-bending.
Fluppy  [author] Aug 30, 2013 @ 3:20pm 
@Malfaction I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed the map!
Malfaction Aug 30, 2013 @ 2:58pm 
Almost gave up on the second part! Glad I didn't! Thumbs up!
Big Jasper Jul 25, 2013 @ 4:39pm 
Pretty Hard -.-
Big Jasper Jul 25, 2013 @ 4:39pm 
Cool

Great map, espeicially the second room, which is like an old fashioned Chinese puzzle box. Move this here, then there otherwise get stuck. Very well done!
MingGyeong<3 Jun 15, 2013 @ 1:05am 
looks difficulty :O but awsome!
kimist108 May 20, 2013 @ 2:04pm 
Yea me!

Top quality map! I enjoyed it a lot, had to come back again to solve the second part. Finding the solution was very entertaining. Congrats, great puzzle and pretty design! (Only thing I didn't like was the music in the second part, got on my nerves after a while..)
KennKong Feb 8, 2013 @ 7:35pm 
I've added this to my collection of Prettiest Maps . The puzzles were easy for me, but I've almost certainly played a prior version. I wasn't bored, that's for sure!
Ale Jan 26, 2013 @ 3:01pm 
Congratulations to both authors, great maps and great mashup!

Oh my god!, I've finally solved it! Sorry that I didn't even read your just below comments, Mr. Fluppy. I almost ignored them actually lol. I challenged the test again today in a pc cafe, while my new computer system is prepared. I nearly cried "Aha(this would have surprised people around me then!) when there something came up to my head that ran down to my spine. I sincrely show my full honor to both of you Fluppy and Gig for making this best puzzle ever designed.

Awesome puzzle, I love puzzles where you have to leave a portal in one place and carefully pick which portals to use. Excellent
Fluppy  [author] Jan 13, 2013 @ 3:37am 
@Bbeoggjay2 I admit that 2nd test is a little bit harder. But I don't want to ruin "aha" moment for you, so firstly I am going to give you a few hints. The first thing you should to is to think about getting to the exit. You can see that you will need to end up with both portals behind fizzler and platforms closed. Now you can start to think about the way how to achieve that. The most important concept for this map is to look from where you can redirect laser to catcher. You should find 3 spots. . I think these hints should help you. If you still don't know how to solve it, I recommend you to watch josepezdj's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfNPHuTm1Yo I am going to make official walkthrough soon.
1980 Jan 12, 2013 @ 4:08pm 
I finally gave up solving the 2nd test. It was like hell. I tried everything that came up to my mind. But nothing useless. Could somebody upload a video that solved it right way?
Fluppy  [author] Jan 11, 2013 @ 6:13am 
Thank you for all your feedback!
AD_79 Jan 10, 2013 @ 3:56pm 
I solved the first chamber, however the second one is giving me a hard time. Excellent puzzle design here.
PR1NC355 Jan 8, 2013 @ 7:17am 
What I liked is the escape is not always the obvious path. It pays to carefully observe the surrounding area for clues. Nice job. I enjoyed it.
Matt Damon's Space Sex Geckos Jan 3, 2013 @ 5:00pm 
I feel like this could've been designed to be a bit more friendly in terms of blind laser shots in the second part. other than that, well done.
Big Jasper Jan 3, 2013 @ 3:07pm 
LOOks hard mabye make hardER

I like mashups. For my taste not enough of the creative brains are working together. The halloween story was a great one. I hope to see more. Mashing ideas, chambers into new stories or twists.

Awesomesause map, looks great.
Requiemsoul Jan 1, 2013 @ 11:22am 
Awesome! Gracias!

Great map, nice details, second puzzle was a little bit harder, but it wasn't extreme ;D, thanks for creating, video coming soon (hopefully :D).
