Advertise your CHALLENGING TEST here
It shoul be interesting and challenge, but if not only you think so. At least a few people was to prove it and wrote a comment to your map. And make sure that you read this. If it is, i want to play at your test

I ask, please do not place advertisement on "my first level," especially if it has no comment and rating, at first let your friend to test and comment it. The level should be checked at least by someone other except you and represent a definite value in terms of interestingness and competitions, or have some unordinary solution. For example try this map:
by Catsy: http://steamcommunity.com/id/amezuki/myworkshopfiles/?appid=620 (especially "Escort Service")
by Sekti: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=71638064&tscn=1338498246

@ThatGuy007 sorry but this not that type of challenging what i'm talking about. Your maps have an obvious solution but you should be very skillful for its. I'm talking about the map in which you must thinking outside the box, but if u know right solution it be easy to solve
Timoteeei 15 May 22, 2012 @ 6:05am 
@Twice, i like map like your =)
Eterz 1 May 22, 2012 @ 6:37am

Timoteeei 15 May 22, 2012 @ 7:14am 
@Eternal your map only "guessing what this button should to do" game =_=
Eterz 1 May 22, 2012 @ 7:22am 
Nope mate, it's not just about that, there are different kinds of mini-puzzles in this one. Don't be fooled by the number of lasers, it's part of the puzzle too! =D
Timoteeei 15 May 22, 2012 @ 7:24am 
@top4er #Strafeace, Is no challenge at your map =__=
Timoteeei 15 May 22, 2012 @ 7:28am 
people, did you really read first topic with advices?! link: http://steamcommunity.com/workshop/discussion/882949475710689142/?appid=620
Konqi 9 May 22, 2012 @ 9:05am 
@Twice Your map is interesting, but it doesn't run without lags, because it's to big.
And there is really no sence in killing the player after having solved all the Problems, just because he jumps at the wrong time.

Alrighty, I'll bite here.

The Dirty Pair
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=71700598
"Phew, this chamber was a handful but I felt a tinge of pride upon completing it, which is the mark of a good map for me. At first I was a bit perplexed as more pieces of the map seemed to keep appearing out of nowhere when I thought I had a handle on how it all worked, but it definitely was well put together. Felt like a proper Valve chamber!" -Jake McAwful, Workshop comments

Button Waltz
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=72514457
"Although at first, it appears simple, this starts requiring some real thinking to it. I am sure after playing with it that I can do this one better and will revisit it in the future." -Saiyala, Steam forums
"Very old school feel to it and forced me to use the classic momentum jump (which has been rare to see in recent maps i have tried). It was quite challenging and did not overstay its welcome." -MagicCarpet, Steam forums
"Awesome fun! Perfect mix of classic and unconventional solutions like taking out turrets with *spoiler*!. Very nice difficulty level for the mid-advanced player. Very good button-fizzler puzzles combined with cube transportation problems to solve. Multiple nontrivial solutions for some problems." - floyd ryan, Steam forums

Finally, my newly-finished Escort Service
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=73099210
A classic Companion Cube puzzle the way it's meant to be: focused on using the cube in different ways to overcome the test chamber puzzles. This is brand new and thus doesn't have any comments yet. But it fits your criteria: easy to blaze through once you know the optimal way to solve the puzzles, but a real tough one until you figure them out. To quote the friend I had playtest it: "Let me just start by saying you sadistic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. ;) That was crazy sauce, dude. That is one hell of a companion cube puzzle."
Timoteeei 15 May 22, 2012 @ 9:50am 
@Catsy, Thanks, seems like it is what i'm looking for =)
I'll try its and leave a comment after completed, and i hope that you will do the same with my map ;3
Catsy 14 May 22, 2012 @ 9:55am 
Thanks, I'm at work now but I subscribed to yours and will test it out later tonight. :)

@Kloppstock this one still looks as if it had not tested yet
