Tangled up in Blue

In 1 collection by elfarmerino

Minimalism is a collection of very small, contained, simply-designed yet challenging maps.

The 5th and (for a while, at least) final map in the series sees test subjects with a little more weaponry in their arsenal, given the cobalt trio of a lightbridge, blue gel pipe and a funnel. Could well be the easiest map in the series, but there's extra fun to be had for advanced players in trying to get at Ratman's Companion Cube...

Good map, thumbs up. I solved the puzzle OK and got to Ratman's area, but would never have thought of the method you used to get up to his companion cube, without looking at the video - that's a new one on me :)

Not sure what to say, as I never had any trouble pulling this one off. I've added a solution vid from greykarel which also shows how to get to the companion cube.

As mentioned by others, there's some finnickyness involved that makes this too hit and miss. A helper portalable surface for a straight vertical lightbridge to allow the bounce-climb might be in order - also gives enough of a hint. It took me about 10 separate attempts to get enough gel on the wall and the lightbridge that was actually straight enough to pull this off... I ended up painting the whole floor to make sure I didn't lose the current attained height after being thrown out of the bounce-climb. Once you're up at the exit, it's easy enough to get to the den entrance, but seems impossble to get up there via conventional means...

This little level encapsulates everything I hate about bouncy gel. Nothing wrong with the level, I just hate maps that take two minutes to figure out and ten to execute.

Hem sadly the imitation is not perfect... My unique solution don't works in your version X)

Ha, well, they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery....

Hem this one remind me something... Oh, I get it, Liliana did almost the same X)
Well I will record a demo this time because I have a really cool solution that use only light bridge and blue gel ^^

Ha, yeah, that's actually my favourite song of all time...
