I liked this map a lot, very well done. I was stumped for a little while but I got there in the end.
Remembering the title was Sacrifice helped a lot.

Yeah, I also brought the cube to me near the cube dropper, then grabbed the cube and just walk through the portal to the exit.

Thanks kexx! I can never visualise the solutions put into words, but I would guess that you did it as intended, with maybe a small variation - I handled the cube to the exit rather than time release through the funnel.

This one's great. I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to do this one. Don't know if I solved it the way you intended, but I basically funneled the cube towards the actual funnel machine, and timed when the cube would be over to step down from the button, so it would fall near the exit. Then just portaled there, but man. That was hard. I really liked this one. Great job!

Very good map indeed. I'm fairly sure I played your intended solution. I'm someone who often breaks a map if I can, and this one is solid. I even tried to get the cube to the first button you'll use, but was unable.

I know that I could've beaten the level if I'd cubethrow (you can only throw this far with enough practice, so don't worry fixing that. But I was able to resist that urge and beaten the map the right way. This only happened after I started to reason, not just try out what things do and go from there. So this is great. :)

I really liked this map - it's nice and small and poses a good challenge (I was caught scratching my head several times). I was able to use the light bridge to end up on the wrong side of the deadly goo without the cube, and if you lose the bridge back, the only solution is suicide, so some way of getting back to the start (without ruining the puzzle) would be good. Very good first map.

Righto, took the easy route and just made the chamber a bit larger. 3rd time lucky?

Lol not quite! Actually, the cube is slightly easier to catch in this version. Simply create a portal underneath the mouth of the cube dispenser, and another on the 2 button platform. Push the button and catch the cube through the portal. Then stand on the cube, jump, and portal to the exit same way as before.

I think a good way to fix this would be to place a metal grating over the portable tiles near the exit. This way, you can still portal the light bridge or tractor beam through, but the player can't go past the grating. You could then place a portable wall on another plane that's not visible to the player when standing on the 2 button platform so that they can enter/exit using that if they need to. I haven't actually solved the puzzle the intended way yet, so hopefully making those changes wouldn't totally ruin the solution.

Ah thanks jomo! Didn't know you could do that! Anyway I've fixed it now, I hope..

I'm not sure if I found the intended solution to this puzzle, but if I did, I didn't need either the light bridge nor the tractor beam.

Once you get up to the platform with the button that releases the cube, one can simply catch the cube and lift it over the fizzler. Then, using the cube as a step, you can stand on the cube spawning button and shoot a portal over to the exit. Then simply portal through the wall behind you towards the exit.

I see where you were going with this, and it's good for a first map, but there are a few loose ends to clean up!
