Quite easy but good design. Thanks for this.

The blue gel tube is transparent from the inside but opaque from the outside. Just cosmetic though, if anything should get fixed it's the drying up gel as others mentioned.

I know what Petulski was talking about in his or her spoiler, and I used that move too, but it didn't diminish the mental part of solving the puzzle. As for Jailbreaker's issues, I didn't encounter them so we must have approached the puzzle in different ways. At any rate, it challenged me and was fun to solve, so thumbs up.

Great chamber! The solution, though, relied on tricky jump and portal from the light bridge rather than on figuring out the logic. Great fun, however!

That "Fiddlesticks" line isn't funny. Just stupid.

Two other problems: First, like HMW said, any gel that gets caught in the reversed funnel just stays there, forcing you to respawn the cube and start all over again. Second... The last portal you have to place, to switch from the funnel to the bridge, is crazy difficult. I haven't been able to do it yet, and when I miss, I end up having to do some portion of the puzzle all over again - not fun when I've already figured out *how* to do it.

It's a shame, because puzzles 1-3 were legitimately awesome (sans the fiddlesticks line.) And this one could be, too, if you made a few tweaks.

Nice test. Well done.

Try my SP map?
Try my COOP map?

Seems like a crossover between Mevious' Piston and Azorae's Sea Spray. Nice Wheatley-themed test.

Clever little puzzle. Thumbs up.

This one was really easy, and I didn't even have to come up with something ridiculous!

I forgot to mention how to use the gel-ed franken cube. Once you get the cube-- bring it to the other side and put gel on it. Then bring it up to the faith plate with you and step on faith plate. Place cube where you landed and go back to faith plate and out you go. This bypasses the light bridge, and the reversed tractor beam. You might want to place a pit on the floor where you land from the faith plate and place a fizzler on top of it and one in front of the tunnel for the way out. That way the franken cube cannot be used in this way. (Just a suggestion)

Nice puzzle :) It took me a while to figure out the intended solution. However, I did discover a shortcut that involves a special property of the franken cube. If you put bounce gel on a franken cube, the cube does not bounce, but you can bounce off it. So I was able to bypass much of the puzzle using this technique. I learned about this from Mr. Gruntie. You can see this demonstrated in Frankenbounce Possible Spoiler Puzzle . Hope this helps.

I too had the gel problem, luckily I had quick saved. Good puzzle once more, all of these are so far. Though 'fiddlesticks' got old the second time it was used, really.

Great Chamber!
However, I was able to solve this without ever using the three angled flatforms in the far right side of the chamber. Also, it is possible to get up to the faith plate area without using the tractor beam. I don't think either of these methods were "intended".
HMW Jun 28, 2013 @ 12:17pm 
This one had me thinking for quite a while. Also required some quick portal placement at the end , but it's not too 'ninja' IMO.

I also had the gel dropper drying up towards the end. When the funnel is orange, any gel that makes it to the funnel emitter will stay floating around there in a big blob, which prevents new gel blobs from spawning. (There's a maximum to the total amount of gel that can be in a map at any time.) This can probably be fixed by making the hole for the funnel emitter less deep, or by placing a gel cleaning trigger there.
Syy Jun 27, 2013 @ 11:12am 
Yep, same problem as Wafflinator. Dropper stopped giving gel, which is a shame becuase I'm certain I almost had it.
ZneX Jun 25, 2013 @ 6:37pm 
Thumbs Up - I've been following your series and this one seemed to be just as challanging as your other.... good puzzles! I have built a couple of chambers that I think are probably a medium challenge compared to yours- still learning though.
Dafflewoctor Jun 24, 2013 @ 4:32am 
I was just about to solve the puzzle when the gel dropper suddenly stopped giving out gel. Is this on purpose? If not please fix it, lol.
This puzzle reminds me a lot of "Piston", a map by Mevious. You should play it and you might see the similarities. Nice job anyways. :) I don't know why everyone says it requires reflexes.

The solution is amazing! Your test room are really very clever, it's really impressive! ^ _ ^ I added to my favorites!
Please, I know you must have a lot of people who like your test room, but please try my rooms, I also do quality test (although I are not much knowledge computer! ^ _ ^)

Your maps are quite nice and you deserve to be ranked among other famous mappers.

"Solution was very clear"

No, it isn't.
tuyuqas Jun 22, 2013 @ 12:00pm 
As the previous three ones, this one was also tremendous and quite enjoyable to solve. And yet I doubt that I solved it the intended way (although it didn't require pixel-perfect accuracy from me as @I before A except after K said).

Anyways, magnificent job. :)
I before A except after K Jun 22, 2013 @ 5:07am 
If the intended method doesn't require pixel-perfect accuracy, I'd like to see what it is. Until then, I'm calling bull on your statement.
Donyel  [author] Jun 22, 2013 @ 4:24am 
well luckily this puzzles doesnt require either if you solve the intended method
I before A except after K Jun 22, 2013 @ 3:34am 
Puzzles that require pixel-perfect accuracy and reflexes aren't good puzzles.
DrFauli Jun 22, 2013 @ 3:20am 
wow, I loved this one. Solution was very clear, but still good thinking required to get there.
Good job, this map is awesome!
ghulwull Jun 20, 2013 @ 12:53pm 
Very good one ! Never thought one could jump this far . I did foresee the solution but did struggle quite a bit to get it.
raycelbelmond Jun 20, 2013 @ 3:44am 
Very good map. I like your style.
DeathWish808 Jun 19, 2013 @ 11:59am 
This one was quite easy for me in comparison to the other ones, but was a lot of fun and still thought provoking. Nice.
Requiemsoul Jun 18, 2013 @ 6:37am 
WOW! Superb Puzzle!. Very clever!
