Thanks! I have a few others cooking ... :)

I love this one, can we have a part 2?!

TY! :)

Great fun!

The level is designed to have many different approaches (pure think, pure reflex, lots of hybrids and variants of each), so there's no wrong way or right way as long as you find your way through :)

I really enjoyed this one although I used cubes to deflect the bullets at times - I don't know if this was the intended method!

Amazing run, Velexia :)

My preferred method of navigating the turret spa is to peacefully place every turret in such a manner as to be non-threatening, without killing a single one (not always easy).

Wonderful! I think this should have been the introduction turret chamber!

Brilliant use of the tunnels. Loved it.

I enjoyed squashing lots of turrets - fun. I think you could have made it a bit harder after the turrets are dead though - seemed like there was some redundancy that could have been gotten rid of.

Feel free to try one of my easier chambers:

Great level, i had lots of fun KILLING all that turrets (muahaha). Also, the design is very good.
By the way, those people asking for checkpoints, you should know that you can quicksave by pressing F6... but i don't recommend it, because it losses the emotion.

great level ! keep up the good work :)

austinzolo, thanks for your comment! Never fear, it's impossible to lock yourself out of solving the test by losing cubes. The test subject always has access to at least two of the chamber's three respawning cube generators (the hidden third generator isn't always accessible, but it's an Easter-egg and not necessary to any of the chamber's possible solutions).

The test seems a little more about fast reflexes and timing, rather than finding a new way to use the aperture stuff. Also, a test subject could skrew up the test at the second half by loosing the cube. Its challenging nonetheless.

Need checkpoints

Hi, seem to have had a video fail and don't appear to have any footage from last night, I will replay and record this, but obviously won't be a blind playthrough. Also reading the discription and having played it again, i think what i said about advanced tricks may have been overstated, guess i was tired last night.

The only problem was the length and no save function, so each misstep was going through the route process of the parts you had already solved before. But I don't know if there is a resolution of that problem...I'm new to these test chambers.
sjohn  [author] May 8, 2013 @ 5:11pm 
Tank, I look forward to seeing your video! No advanced tricks at all; just a bit of tractor-beam and portal-play of the old-fashioned sort, really. Drop me a message if you need de-stucked!
Tank May 8, 2013 @ 4:57pm 
got a blind run videoed will upload in a day or so, but either there's some 'advanced'ish tricks in here or i broke the map and can't figure out how to solve it.

Cool - I like it.

The idea of navigating around the turrets is fun, but there are so many ways to die and SO many turrets to disable that it gets boring pretty quick. This would be a lot more fun if it were about 1/3rd as long.

I've also got a turret map for you if you like: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=94896335
sjohn  [author] May 8, 2013 @ 12:44am 
Thanks for the comments, folks! Both negative and positive feedback are super-appreciated. toncica, that was an awesome run-through; thanks for sharing that, and those who've asked me to try out your maps in return: I will indeed!

A lot of things in this map don't make sense, such as the test chamber observatory high up where "nothing can be really seen" (other than a turret), cheating the barriers by trickjumping and much more. Didn't like.

I've recorded a session of playing through some of the maps from the workshop front page. Yours was among them (skip to 31:35): http://youtu.be/UxHlXm6ZnOc

Excellent, long, clever chamber.
Andi May 7, 2013 @ 11:46am 
This chamber took some time to complete. Those turrets were a pain but all in all, nice chamber, thumbs up.

Would you mind trying one of mine?

A mixture of a little clever thinking and portaling, implementing a 'holding pattern' for the 2nd cube and some basic circumvention for me. Not all features used or needed. All turrets nicely bathed. I think they're all sleeping their spa day off as we speak. Umm... Not sure of the problems that wgs commented he had. Maybe he felt he needed to bunnyhop or cubehop or something, but that is certainly not the case.

good map, had fun! i rated up for ya! u should try out my map series i think you will like :D

This map is horrendous! There are so many faults with it I would go on and on and on. This map shouldn't exist! I had to rely on taking advantage of the game engine to finish this test. Most turret maps by other members are annoying, and this is one of them.

that was a great little map
