It was a good test, but i thought i had trapped myself for a minute just before the final faith plate, but luckily thanks to some thinking (and quick portaling) i managed to get back up to that ledge where i had left both cubes (since I missed the portal falling down cause i hesitated). I had a little trouble in the room with the cube, grates and the emansapation grills (if that makes any sence) I died several times trying to jump back to solid ground, it was kind of annoying that i couldn't move the light bridge over so i could get closer to the area (I don't think a placement helper is necessary right there). Other than that it was good, i died a few times and was worried quite a bit, but it was all doable, and had nice "ah-ha" moments. 8.5/10

Haha wow, this level was a tricky one. At first I didn't know I was doing the right thing when activating the first light bridge, but it was fun when I figured out what to do with it.

This one I had not played before and quite enjoyed it. Well done!

less hard than the previous dilapidation, but a map for ninjas :). skill and timming. i like it.

Dear author! Plaese, do not make any more maps for Portal 2. Please, make maps for Quake III or similar games. Portal 2 is the puzzle game, it means you need to think and to find solution. But here after I found solution I spent more than hour to bring it into life! This is not puzzle - this is bloody shooter!

I cannot complete this with the super precise timing required and lack of knowlege on if I am progessing or not. I mostly got through this test with glitchy maneuvers only to get complely screwed at the end and have to restart everything. A walkthrough would be extremely helpful for this because then even I still could not pull off finishing it I would at least know how it transitioned to the next map.
I really liked the previous maps but this one I have spent the most time on (about an hour) and just cannot find a way to complete it. I had to stop because I gave myself a headache.

Great puzzle, but the demands of the portal moves are tedious. Really took the fun right out of it. Love your other tests.

I somehow cliped the first cube through the grating, then used cube throw to get it from lightbridge over the gap, then another cube throw to get it into last room, then a bunny hop to jump from fizzled bridge to last platform. I found this level really hard. (and the part 4 imposibly hard.)

The ending required quite a bit of skill. Good map.
bibliophile13 Nov 10, 2013 @ 10:29pm 
This was my personal least favorite, because of the skills needed (timing, jumping ,etc.). However it is still definately above the average quality test chamber.

not sure if o got the last part the way it was intended but I got out of the room so guess it was right
mechtakendall Nov 4, 2013 @ 7:25pm 
Not my kind of map unfortunately. I spent more time dying then solving the puzzle. Design 6/10 Difficulty 6/10

Lovely ending.

@p0rtalmaster
Using the companion cube wouldn't be a good idea, since the whole map series is based on the companion cube which never gets to you before the final map. (Doors closing right in front of the cube, cube is stuck in tubes, but you can't grab him etc...)
pa1ntmaster Sep 5, 2013 @ 10:48pm 
Probably a tad easier if you use a companion cube insted of a regular cube, so that we know to carry it across the fizzler. Other than that, the test is practically perfect.

Thumbs up ..... the ass , for the pain in the ass this was .
Scryms Aug 18, 2013 @ 9:08am 
I comment because I REALLY liked the maps so far. I felt like I was cheating on this map (well, more than on the others), doing things like tossing the first cube from the cube room to the "main room" while staying on the button (I still don't know if there is another way, I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out, but found nothing but frustration haha). I did also jump on the 2 cubes to get on the light bridge... Well, I did like the map anyway, just felt like I was cheesing the mechanics ! Thumbs up ofc, just like your other maps.

Its a toss up between this map and the one before, which one is my fav so far. Loved the look of the room where the first lightbridge was. Another great set of puzzles.
Bayram Jun 4, 2013 @ 6:23am 
I found this one to be above medium difficulty; maybe I didn't do it right. It was very rewarding though, definitely thumbs up!

My escape-themed chamber, "The Oubliette", is fairly large, with deadly traps, and should be a quick bit of fun for players of the Dilapidation series:

That was fun! Good map!
wildgoosespeeder May 7, 2013 @ 5:54pm 
This one was awesome!
piotr_mil Apr 21, 2013 @ 5:00pm 
As I previously said, the maps, though looking great starts to feel the same. I was nice to get a smart light bridge puzzle, but that's it.
szymekx666 Apr 17, 2013 @ 9:28am 
Finish was totally great!!
presto668 Apr 8, 2013 @ 7:53pm 
I had the same problem as MetalLobster from February... the first cube would sometimes take its sweet time getting out of the dropper to the point that the fizzler would reset. I eventually got it though.

Only part I didn't like was the leap of faith to the other side of the pillar at the beginning.
kimist108 Apr 4, 2013 @ 1:31pm 
Liked this one better than 3 or 4. No flupey ending and no superfluous stuff that you can't figure out why it's there and try using it anyway.

Great map! Cheers!
Lylline Mar 11, 2013 @ 2:53pm 
vraiment tordu, mais au moins on ne fini pas à salle en une ou deux minutes
macko68 Mar 2, 2013 @ 7:16am 
Puzzle wise solid but still nr 4 remains the best of the series (an in top 10 of my personal rating). Many thanks for your work !
GWD9000 Feb 27, 2013 @ 1:01am 
Good, tricky map. TUF'd. I thought this was slightly more technically difficult than 4, as well as having more potential ways of completing things. The leaps of faith/beginna-ninja lightbridge jumps are a little disconcerting due to finnickyness of portalable surfaces. That's my only real crit on this one - maybe make some of those surfaces that have more fatal miss consequences a little larger for more margin of error. You could slim them down to this map as an 'advanced' version for those with better target hitting and timing. Thanks for making it, the series, and the ones you're still making to complete the series. Cheers.
LPChip Feb 21, 2013 @ 12:06pm 
Awesome map. I barely finished it. This is hard medium-hard difficulty though, maybe even hard difficulty, because of the jumps etc required.
Le Petit Mort Feb 20, 2013 @ 4:48pm 
Pros:
• Great sound design;
• Great level design;
• Narrative;
• Perplexing puzzles;
• Jumping puzzles;

Cons:
• Jumping puzzles;
• Onscreen text! Urgh! There must be a better way!

Thoughts:
Would've thrown me for more of a loop if it weren't for your last puzzle. ; )

@MetalLobster I will add a trigger push but if that doesnt work I dont know whats wrong, it works fine for me and everyone else ive seen play, its just a standard cube dropper instance. reuploading.
MetalLobster # Feb 15, 2013 @ 7:35pm 
Hey, I had a problem in the room where you get your first cube. Whenever I press the button for the cube to drop, it would drop so slowly that the barrier would reset before the cube drops. I have the demo file if you would like to see it.

Take a loot at the portalable surface just in front of the button connected to the great fizzler!! The solution is not as difficult as one might think. Putting a cube on a button at its very centre is not always a right thing![/spolier]

I never thought I would say this about the Dilipidation series (Been following it for awhile) but while the map in this part was excellently crafted, puzzles genuinely brilliant and sneaky, I did not enjoy some aspects, like the ninja skills required to make a couple of jumps, especially getting that first light bridge over. The puzzles around the central faith plate was a good idea, but it felt very unnatural (Maybe is the head slamming on the ceiling and me falling in toxic goo.) Some of the ways I solved the puzzles felt like exploits (eg getting the second cube?) But this is alright, I am just unsure if it is a valid solution. Ultimately, the map as a whole was outstanding, I can't do any better so I will just leave it at that. So far I like part 4 the most, but hopefully 6 or 7 could become awesome without it feeling unfair. I look forward to them, and if you managed to read all this, congratulations. :)
GeoJJx Feb 13, 2013 @ 8:38am 
Nvm about that, I just solved it, feel like an idiot now. Ok, um... Yes, aesthetics; Gorgeous as always! Things are looking very interesting and I look forward to the next part. I cannot emphasize how well done I felt that the maps were designed. Its phenomenal and is on par, maybe more than the single player map appearances. And now to the not so good part..
GeoJJx Feb 13, 2013 @ 8:13am 
Still having trouble getting second cube... -_-
Piranha.A Feb 12, 2013 @ 2:51am 
Best ending yet!!! :D Superb puzzles, superb style! Can't wait to play the rest...
(ƦAWƦaRFS) Catches07 Feb 11, 2013 @ 5:09pm 
Ok
LoneWolf2056  [author] Feb 11, 2013 @ 7:24am 
@Catches07 Yes already added part 0 but part 6 and 7 to go, hoping to have them done by 1st March to finish the series, I have had computer problems which have delayed me, glad you enjoyed.
(ƦAWƦaRFS) Catches07 Feb 10, 2013 @ 7:34pm 
And are you going to make more?

@Rackam You just subscribe it up here------------------------------------------------------------'
Father Jack Feb 9, 2013 @ 8:53pm 
First 5 maps great, this one too difficult, lost interest in it. Probably needs some form of hinting where to go next. e.g. couldn't figure out how to get in upper room with button that activates flip panel in large room. Great work otherwise.
LoneWolf2056  [author] Feb 6, 2013 @ 12:55pm 
Thanks @KennKong the reason the hoppy-skippy stuff isnt too difficult is cause im not very good at it either and I do have to be able to beat my own maps xD
Rackam Feb 6, 2013 @ 12:49pm 
how can i donwload it?
KennKong Feb 6, 2013 @ 11:51am 
This one had more of the feel of working your way around a broken test chamber, which I like to see in a destroyed style. It was a little bit hoppy-skippy for a klutz like me, but I was able to get all the maneuvers in just a few tries at most. Another excellent job!
Ace Ryder Feb 5, 2013 @ 10:46pm 
Wow that was tough. took me 30 minutes.
LoneWolf2056  [author] Feb 4, 2013 @ 7:52pm 
@GIANTBLUE Thanks for all the feedback, glad you have enjoyed it ^_^
GIANTBLUE Feb 4, 2013 @ 7:49pm 
As with the rest of the series so far, this map was fantastic! Though this map still required me to think in unusual ways (as with the previous four), I found the previous entry to be slightly more difficult. Nevertheless, this still proved quite a challenge. I look forward to your continuation of the series!

wow not so easy as it looks ,nice
