Hated the Ninja part to get the cube over the liquid acid stff (took me probably 30 tries - I'm horrible at it). Loved the puzzle after that. Great job!

Thanks! Glad to see people enjoying my chambers ^.^

So cool - a ninja move that required precise timing, spinning, shooting . . . all in one quick sequence. That by itself was incredible. But THEN. THEN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A full week of brain-smashing attempt after attempt . . . pencils and paper to draw it out . . . long bouts of thinking while sitting out on the porch . . . all this before I finally solved it. The solution is so damn tricky ! !

This was great. I solved the first part pretty quickly but then it took me ages to figure out how to get both cubes and the laser into the entrance room. Pretty clever. Another perfect chamber from you. Thank you :)

A little ninja skill and enough momentum to get second cube without winding up in the goo. Also, thinking is required.
Bensenhaver Jun 25, 2013 @ 11:37am 
And I thought that the test chamber would be solved once I had the cube... Got the cube like five months ago then for months had the sensation that I was one cube short! Took me ages! Finally! Great challenge!

"a bit frustrated by the agility this chamber requires to proceed" "extremely difficult map"
Where is the required agility??? Instead i think it's a very well designed map, not difficult but smart, with many moments of good thinking. Thanks

Solved it, though was a bit frustrated by the agility this chamber requires to proceed. I can provide that agility, but that was suprisingly high. Not that high though like in my last three sweet chambers which you yet not solved.

I saved myself some time and frustration by leaving one cube in "limbo", moving to the platform and then sending said cube on a collision course with the other.

Not the intended solution, but I give myself brownie points for execution. :-)


Nice map, Gig.

Brilliant map. Thanks for it!

It's an old puzzle, so it wasn't my best :)

My favourite map, thanks for making it

I did the last part like jyjey because I cannot understand how to mantain the tunnel and both the cubes in the exit room... any tips?

Great map. Definitly a frustrating *sigh/growl* map. More frustration = more satisfaction. Great mind tease. Thank you!

Acquiring the weighted cube is a bit headache inducing. After 2 tries, I grabbed a cold beer and came back for a third... nailed it. Overall excellent map.
jyjeyz Jun 28, 2012 @ 3:10am 
also found few ways to get companion cube, with and without using reportal. great map!
jyjeyz Jun 28, 2012 @ 2:57am 
that's my way to solve this test without funnel.. http://youtu.be/B5YbjDxqLd4
astonostosson Jun 18, 2012 @ 3:26pm 
Man, this is hard. I managed to get the second cube and all, but I just can't figure out the last part. Oh well, i'll sleep on it and see if that helps.
Yuria Jun 2, 2012 @ 11:33pm 
I solved it. But I coulnd't figure out how to get both the funnel and the cube in the first room, so I used the redirection cube to knock out the cube off the button :P
Ha3 May 25, 2012 @ 4:04pm 
One of the most elegant puzzles out there, however if I solved it the right way, one of the parts may be very hard for a causal player, I've had to buttonmash that part several times to get it right.

Also your puzzle is the first one to tempt me into trying that: There is a secondary way to "pass" the puzzle, because of the Havok multiverse (and you cannot possibly fix that) http://youtu.be/dUSjvaJ9qNA

I can see what has to be done but I can't turn around quick enough (xbox controller) for the portal/self flinging required to obtain the weighted cube. perhaps locate the pedestal button to line up with the angled panel so more players can be challenged by the rest of the puzzle. cheers

Hands down my favorite puzzle yet from the PTI. This had me stumped for about an hour and a half. I had my roommate look at it and watching him play helped me see the solution. Bravo dude, there are at least three concepts I learned from the puzzle that I will never forget. It also inspired my second puzzle called Twins!

I love this puzzle so much I made a video of my play through, WARNING SOLUTION WITHIN: {LINK REMOVED - Please don't spam, and be wary of scams.}http://goo.gl/gQqVC

I'd love to know what you think of my puzzles as well, especially Twins: {LINK REMOVED - Please don't spam, and be wary of scams.}http://goo.gl/Uovul

You are awesome !!! You got me!!!!
took me about 2h to solve it !!! with one break!
then when i stand there with two cubes to solve it i nearly was thinking to give up.
i knew how the end should be, but how to get the most important two portals at the end, that was bonebreaking work :D
also thought, no you can´t shut down the game here! if you once shut down you have to get back these damn fucking cube -.-
So Awesome, youre great. But i cant play your maps in a queue they are so exhausting.
Looking forward for new stuff!!! :D
Sincerely strider :)
Vintage May 16, 2012 @ 5:03pm 
well ive solved it in my head (then checked here to see that I got it right). but i lack the timing / skill / patience to pull it off. while a nice puzzle, i'm not a fan of the effort needed to pull it off
Voldepreuss May 16, 2012 @ 9:39am 
Yes I was jumping, too. From the wall in the second room through the floor and then I catapulted up to the button, from there I quickly turned (in the air) and portaled to the angular portal surface and flew over the water, catching the falling cube.
big_n00b May 16, 2012 @ 9:28am 
@Voldepreuss
How did you get the second cube? I'm jumping.
If you're on another video recording for me.
big_n00b May 16, 2012 @ 9:23am 
The most difficult thing in this chamber to take a second cube, everything else is simple logic.
Passed. Yeah!
Voldepreuss May 16, 2012 @ 9:00am 
OMFG I did it... I didn't know Stephen Hawking was designing Portal puzzles. Congratulations on such an extraordinarily clever map. More people need to see this. But I fear that will drag down the score because the majority will simply (like me) assume it's unsolveable.
Voldepreuss May 16, 2012 @ 8:20am 
ok. So be it. I shall succeed.
That Greek Guy May 16, 2012 @ 8:16am 
there is a solution people. with out any glitches or exploits. I solved it using my logical brain powr and so can you.
Voldepreuss May 16, 2012 @ 8:04am 
Yeah I spent 30 minutes in this level and I can't find a solution. I would like a confirmation that it is legitimately solveable without bugs before I continue to sink my teeth into it.
big_n00b May 15, 2012 @ 4:19am 
I do not know how to get the second cube. :\
Hope that's not necessary to use bugs, just think.
adzicents May 10, 2012 @ 5:02am 
Confusing enough that I had to use reportalling to complete it. Hit me up with the intended solution so I can see why I'm an idiot :)
That Greek Guy May 9, 2012 @ 4:44pm 
This map is BRILLIANT and everyone should attempt to play it.
