Not only does this mod have puzzles in the style of Portal 2's campaing and co-op mode, no, it also introduces us to completely new gameplay mechanics (changing gravity, a maze, etc), and all that in only 6 maps, 5 of which were excellent (I was feeling a bit "left behind" in the 6th one, it doesn't explain as much as it should do). The only thing that could be improved is that the maps' look should help the player find out the solution a bit easier/earlier (yes, you can build maps where the looks only lead to the solution). 9/10 points for a mod that really enhances portal 2's gameplay mechanics.

Nice mod, with minor bugs!

Got about 1-2 hours of gameplay!, very nice!

I enjoyed the gameplay. The first chamber was really tricky to figure out and that level of difficulty didn't drop. The mod adds another layer of confusion atop of what was already there with portal. I would've liked to see more gravity-defying rooms like in the floor of the first chamber - they are mind bending.

Overall: 8/10. It's pretty well polished and is a good challenge to those who think with portals.

Some fresh concepts, but some new puzzle elements were awkwardly presented and I was unaware of how they were to be used. Voice acting was a bit cheesy. Some lines felt out of place, and I wasn't sure why certain things were being said. Level design was good for the most part, but some chambers felt lacking in detail, awkwardly built, and there were lots of mis-aligned textures. Overall, 6/10 for effort and new ideas, but quality is a bit lower than expected.

Plenty of misaligned textures, boring visual designing, gameplay was playable though.

Great use of custom assets in this one. Really gets the ball rolling on Portal 2 custom content and shows what can be done if you have the skill. Great job!
