@ASTERION:
Thanks, glad you liked it.
Regarding the simplicity of the map, that is why this is Strategy 1, and not 4. This is the tutorial chamber for Strategy 4. It is meant to be obvious and easy.

Nice map, but in my opinion the starting tutorial makes the map too obvious. Anyway, I liked it :)

All was happy in the cube's life, but suddenly CATAPULT!!

I somehow got 8 of your maps in my queue from somewhere and they were all good. Will definitely check out some more as I get time. Well done!

I liked this one - not too tough, but something to think a little bit about the mechanix. Thanks!

@Spaceminnow:
It seems your going through all of my maps....and yeah, u started with the hard stuff so the rest should be all easy.
Spaceminnow Jul 23, 2015 @ 3:11pm 
After doing some of the more difficult ones so far... This one was much easier. Clever fun exit puzzle...

Nice tricky cube manipulation!

Very clever puzzle. Just learned a new trick. Incidentally, the intro chamber to the actual test area is an identical copy of the intro chamber of a puzzle by Mevious named Rendez-Vous.

Difficulty: 1/10 (VERY EASY)
Good map, solved it in a couple minutes.
Mathey2009  [author] Apr 15, 2013 @ 9:22pm 
This is an intro test....the whole and main point of ot is to be introductory and simple....play the rest of the collection if you want more challenge....or play Cubelessness 1 or 2 or Logic from my other maps.
Denominator Apr 13, 2013 @ 3:35pm 
A fun, short puzzle. These are decent puzzles, but it seems the main complaint is that they are too short. Perhaps try combining some of them in pairs?

well try playing my other maps then man....I dare you to finish eirther cubelessness 1, cublessness 2 or Logic....

sorry man but this was the MOST simple map i have ever played took me 3 minutes exactly to figure this out.... was way to simplistic no stragedy what so ever..... i think that in my opionon you should make people think instead of just have a poor map like this one if you put more time in your maps i think you would have it made other wise it was way too simple....

Nice Trick!

@Metzger Ben | GER:
Now that's the intended solution...kudos...

@Dreamer ( Portal 2Maping):
Thanks for the constructive feedback.
Dreamer Oct 20, 2012 @ 12:19pm 
simple. sry. there is no strategy behind. The name is just irritading, so this point makes me bored. Otherwise good chamber.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 13, 2012 @ 9:52am 
@Bober RS:
Nope....that is not the intended solution lol....
Bober RS Oct 13, 2012 @ 1:20am 
Excellent! this is exactly what I like: seemingly simple map with nice design and uncommonly invented solution. Well... I' not sure if my way was correct:
I dropped cube from height on faith-plate and quickly pushed button
cyc4015 Oct 11, 2012 @ 11:32pm 
Very clever, I spent a lot of time ttrying to figure out which buttons needed to be pressed and when. Lots of fun!

@machmanx:
Lol, thanks man....glad u liked it.
machmanx Oct 10, 2012 @ 4:50pm 
Took a little thinking, but pulled out my book of "Portal 2 Tricks" and figured out how this works. For making me pull out my book, good job :D
Yavie Oct 9, 2012 @ 2:42pm 
Hah! That was fun (:
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 9, 2012 @ 12:34pm 
Thank you all....I apreciate it.
daloboy Oct 9, 2012 @ 12:20pm 
Small and interesting!
Please try mine !
Aardvark00 Oct 9, 2012 @ 5:16am 
Something a bit smaller and easier from you here but still neatly constructed and requiring some thought. Very good. Finally finished my first chamber published Oct 3rd. I would particularly appreciate your comments on it if you have time. No need to be kind, I can take it :) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=100607039

Harder than it looks

Try out my tests if you can
Andi Oct 8, 2012 @ 4:18pm 
Small but effective. Kept me occupied for a few minutes before I figured it out. Very nice map, I liked it.

If you have a chance, check out one of my favorites.

@Jay:
Of course throwing a cube is never an intended solution.
Brad Oct 8, 2012 @ 7:16am 
Thanks for the puzzle man! even if the "cube bump" wasnt always sucessful. It'd be great if you had time to check out my map! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=95424799
Jay Oct 8, 2012 @ 5:26am 
I'm not sure if I solved this how you intended, as I simply threw the cube through a portal to land on the faith plate and went back and stood on the button that disables the emancipation grill. You have to be pretty quick to do this solution, but it works.

@Metzger Ben | GER If you're going to spam a ton of maps around, for gods sake learn how to format links.

Awesome map here, keep it up!
Thanks for this map, I enjoyed it very much!
Want to try out really hard chambers from the worshop?
For all of those who were waiting for more great chambers from cool mappers check out these workshops:

- Testing: Fizzlers/Cubes/Buttons/Funnels and their applications in the field of science.
- Difficulty: Medium - Very Hard
- Estimated time to complete: between 5 minutes and 1 hour.
The other chambers are even better, it is harder and more elegant, with no fancy tricks or unconventional methods here.
Thanks again, and here my solution to this chamber: http://youtu.be/n8IkirWTzzI

I hardly believe the way it worked. It was ingenious. Good job.
atommalac Oct 7, 2012 @ 6:00am 
Takes some trial and error, but I liked it.
Constantine Oct 7, 2012 @ 2:55am 
Nice and easy! Well done :)

SuperChaosKG Oct 6, 2012 @ 6:56pm 
Love it! Not "Easy" but not a mind melter, either.

Chaotically Completed!
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 6, 2012 @ 11:38am 
Thanks to all....apreciated...
StIg Oct 6, 2012 @ 3:41am 
Pretty easy, only took a couple of minutes, loved the mechanics with the cube and faith plate...
Donderbus Oct 6, 2012 @ 2:48am 
Nice and small, gj.
Butters Stotch Oct 5, 2012 @ 11:20pm 
Very clever, nice misdirection.

@GodzillaMonster:

GodzillaMonster Oct 5, 2012 @ 7:00am 
Thank you very much for the puzzle - nice idea. Appropriate name too.
