Mevious, recently I've tried to play all your maps but it seems like this map and also Push and Tracer can't be played anymore becaus download error occurs. Could you please reupload them or do something to make them playable? You are one of the best Portal mappers imho and I really want to finish all of your maps.

Great puzzle, very tasty. I like puzzles where you have to think like that.

Yes, defintely on the easier side, but still very satisfying, cheers

I was confounded until I remembered the name. After looking around I realized there was a piston in the map. Great fun. Thanks. Care to try one of mine.

This chamber was not that hard,but I had fun playing it.Thanks.

This was a good puzzle, I was frustrated at first so I took a small break and came back and realized that I was attempting the wrong thing over and over again until I tried something new and it worked. Thanks for your work.

This is one of your easier Test Chambers, but felt glad to only have to sacrifice one cube in error. A lot of fun!

Please try my Test Chambers as well:

one of your easier ones, but definitely way fun.

I recognize a recurring element in every Mevious map. He puts a solution that looks like the right one, then makes it impossible and you spend hours trying to get it to work while you get distracted from the real solution.

Great design. Took a while to solve, actually had to look at a hint, but once I got that, I was able to finish, but still took some time. Here's a map that I made similar to this:

I solved this one by accident while I was derping around trying to do something else that didn't work. I sat there scratching my head for an hour before I thought of something else that might work. Then when I realized that that was the solution, I was like, "Oh. DUH!"

Really made me think! Good job!

Great map! Was a real brain teaser for me. Thank you!
Webg33k May 27, 2013 @ 5:18pm 
I found this pretty challenging. Nice one!

Pfffff... when i see the solution i shout at myself, thinking about you: WTF is wrong with you???!!!! XD Pretty map

dude stop torturing me with these puzzles

I am just in awe of this chamber. I've just solved it after four attempts over a period of months and, like all your chambers, the solution is so simple and elegant but hard to find. This one is especially great because of its very simple architecture.

This was the 1st map of yours that I could solve on my own in under 5 mins. Your other maps on the other hand either stump me 50% of the time or it takes me 10 ins +. Whenever I need to youtube for solution and the video is 1:30 I say to myself.. "prepare to feel like a moron in 1:30" Thanks for the great maps.

Excellent work man. I`ve played like 15 of your maps and none took me more then 10 min. You got me however on that one :) Light brigde distraction was a nice trick :) Thanks for clean quality maps !

Loved it. Thanks!

that was soooo hard
dvanroijen Jan 24, 2013 @ 7:35am 
When I play a Mevious puzzle, first I think 'that's easy', then I think 'it can't be done, it's impossible' and then, after a lot of thinking and trying, I (usually) solve it. The beauty is in the fact that it doesn't look hard at all...
Reiman Jan 13, 2013 @ 12:10pm 
OMG, that took me a while! It was challenging and the 'click' in the brain, when I came to the solution ... just hilarious! ^_^ Faved!!!
HP2ViD Dec 24, 2012 @ 12:38pm 
Not too hard, just perfect!
Dr. Mike Dec 8, 2012 @ 11:37am 
Excellent puzzle as always, and true to your form. Took me quite a while before the "a-ha moment" kicked in.
herbusmc Dec 6, 2012 @ 11:53pm 
This one stumped me, as usual for a Mevious map. My brain just doesn't work like that, but that's why I keep playing. Keep them coming Mr Mevious.
NinjaMagnum Nov 29, 2012 @ 9:26am 
I also only have been solving it with reportaling :D
AgentFire Nov 29, 2012 @ 8:31am 
My godness. I am such a failure. (Looked the solutions).
AgentFire Nov 29, 2012 @ 8:27am 
Couldn't solve it. Only with reportalling.
ken.roberts Nov 28, 2012 @ 5:51pm 
I have raved about almost al of your maps in my comments - but this was a thumbs down. Just too easy. Oh well, one bad one after 20 great ones ain't bad.

Without portal pro juggle - solution:

Use the faith plate to get up to where the cube would be dispenced. portal on the floor here. second portal on the floor or the main test chaimber, so you can fall into this portal.

Now, with the cube, jump down and into the portal that you placed on the lower part of the m
ap, you will need to gain speed to then be flung virtaically up in the air where the cube despencer area is. place a portal on the slanted surface so that you will make the fling to the box button position, take the cube.

pop the cube on and portal bac
k up to the top again where the dispencer area is.

a portal on the fling surface that will take you back to the enterance way and another on the floor to get accro
ss. You dont have to use the faithplate now (and you cant).

you can see the lightbridge and get out

Metzgeren Ben | GER has a vid showing a small 'cheat' (the Portal Prelude Ninja Move). I suggest you make the three squares on the platform near the pit black.

Really enjoyed this - thanks

Finally a chamber I could solve in a short time. Thanks, My solution: http://youtu.be/5mYb6GfYHgg

Thanks, In its simplicity again gave some hard time to solve.
Voldepreuss Sep 19, 2012 @ 1:56pm 
really nice idea. As always excellently executed, too! I found it fairly easy though. I love your maps but sometimes they seem a little too easy once you grasped the typical pattern of your designs. Maybe if made some puzzles longer they could be more challenging?
The Other Guy Sep 14, 2012 @ 5:21am 
yet another brilliant test chamber toke me,...16 minutes.
Joshua Raposa Sep 6, 2012 @ 11:07am 
Very nice design. I like it.
grossedout5 Aug 30, 2012 @ 10:56am 
Nice! I have played portal pro and rexaura after I got stumped by most of your maps. But after I came back I caught on to your thinking. Are you going to make another mod for portal? If not why not make one for portal 2!
Mathey2009 Aug 28, 2012 @ 4:46pm 
Awesome map here, keep it up!
Thanks for this map, I enjoyed it very much!
Want to try out the hardest map in the worshop?
For all of those who were waiting for my newest map (and for all of those who are new to my maps),here's a link to my newest map called "Cubelessness 2":
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=89526264
- Testing: Fizzlers/Cubes/Buttons/Funnels and their applications in the field of science.
- Difficulty: Hard-Very Hard
- Estimated time to complete: between 5 minutes and 1 hour.
If you know the first part of this map ("Cubelessness": http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=78146075) then you will find this second part even better, it is harder and more elegant, with no fancy tricks or unconventional methods here.
Thanks again

Awesomeness =)
BossSmiley Aug 25, 2012 @ 7:26pm 
Great map! Just completed it today. Obviously it helps if you know the 'perpetual juggle between two portals' trick.
.sheridan .vespo Aug 25, 2012 @ 9:58am 
Great puzzle. Lots of flings. Like in this map: Just A Fling
e. Aug 24, 2012 @ 7:08pm 
As per usual with your levels, this map design is very simple, but the puzzle is very challenging. You are by far my favorite portal 2 community map maker. Keep up the great work!
Thorn Aug 23, 2012 @ 4:52am 
For some reason, I found this to be the hardest of all your maps. Most of your others I can solve within about an hour... This one just stumped me. Think my brain has an easier time with logic puzzles than physics puzzles.
