Simple, Cerebral Test Chambers
Is anyone else a fan of test chambers that are simple and relatively small, but require brain power / critical thinking? Anyone can make a level hard by making it huge and complex, but unfortunately, hard, simple levels seem pretty scarce in the Portal 2 workshop.

If you too are interested in making, or playing, or brainstorming about this type of level, post your thoughts and links here!

Here are two to get you started. :)

Just to be clear: please only post test chambers here if

A) They fit the description in the post, and
B) You're interested in also playing other people's tests and providing feedback.

Thanks!

Hi Berni,

Just go to your map, right click on the page, and click "copy page url." Then Ctrl V back here. :)

Oh... I thought that's something harder :P

So, there it is... the test chamber, which isn't huge... Hard? I don't know... but I'm sure that's a GOOD test...

I liked it! That said, I didn't use the upper level (with the turret) at all. Was I supposed to?

Here's my playthrough: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMRd5bTGEVk

Really nice maps, still couldn't find a solution for the 1st one, I'll try again when I wake up

Here's my map,not as hard as yours but I guess is ok to check it out

Will try it out! Don't worry about Adjacancy 5, that one's bloody difficult. If you want, try the earlier Adjacency levels first--2 is probably the easiest.

The best kind of maps are simple but difficult.

Check out these maps by Elfarmerino:
- Imp
- Tangled Up In Blue
- Boost
- Almost
- Pearly

Elfarmerino... I know this guy from somewhere...
@Juggler you can search him in "community"

EDIT:
oh I know him from my test chamber Lovely Lasers #5 :D

"Very nice. I just loaded up a bunch of random chambers from the 'Recent' tab and naturally most were terrible, so congratulations on actually making a thoughtful and enjoyable puzzle!"
