Welcome to the Trap complex. Here, you will be subjected to numerous tests for dexterity and ingenuity. Please do not try to leave the elevator before it stops… The goal of your mission is to leave the trap and receive an award. Each section will consist of several chambers, in each chamber you will find the portal capable to transfer you into the next chamber. At the end of each section you will receive a subject, without which it is impossible to continue the test. Attention! Your safety is not guaranteed. No one will find you if you are injured or dying, except other testers. Good luck!

The Trap is:
1. The atmosphere of Valve's Portal game.
2. Many incredible puzzles.
3. The achievement system.
4. A long time to the end.
5. The Trap for your brain.

10 reasons why you should play The Trap v1.5:

1. Captivating gameplay.
The Trap was developed mod in the spirit of the game“Portal” in 2007-2008, and was completely redesigned in 2011. Theplayer enters the test facility, "The Trap," in which he is forced topass tricky obstacles and kill monsters. The main goalof the game is get out of the complex and stay alive. In thecourse of moving the player will meet with other subjects and will solve someof the secrets of this mysterious complex (who built it, where it is, and whatit really needed).

2. Intuitive interface.

Thanks to the redesign of the main elements of thegame and adjustments to the gameplay in The Trap, it is now fair to play, even for those whohave never played the first Half-Life. A flexible system of prompting and intuitive userinterface key elements of the game will help newcomers to easily navigate thegame space, and successfully pass all the test chambers of the big complex.

3. Hardcore mode.

Hardcore audience will be left holding the bag. For bigfans of Half-Life an innovative feature called: Hardcore mode! Which retains the originalatmosphere of The Trap, and more. This is not just an increase in the strength and healthof the monsters. The game has more obstacles, removed tips, and someof the features vanish, into thin air.

4. Achievements and alternate ending.

In The Trap v1.5 an achievement system is introduced. Which helps to keep the excitement passing the test chambers. Most ofthem are fairly original, and not too complicated. In addition, the systemadvances incorporated into the plot. The results can be found right in the game in the roommarked "Hall of Fame." Collect all of the major and valuable achievements - and thiswill open an alternative ending, which adds another 20 minutes of unusual gameplay!

5. Continuous gameplay.

Last beta-testing showed that novices (On average!)will pass with in the course of seven hours!! This is several times larger than the standardlength of most of the mods and the game is not to fixate on the same obstacles,but always presents something new.

6. Quality.

I was trying to fix the bugs with in the mod that can becorrected. So, for example, the cheat protection system was removed,which in most cases would simply interfere with honest players. Instead,I adopted a new concept: play as you want, look for alternative solutions,share them on YouTube!

7. A flexible system of autosave.

Thanks to an improved system of autosavecheckpoints you'll never lose your progress! Now thegame is saved after every significant action of the player.

8. Secret Zone.

Another factor causing the return to the game, itis the existence of secret rooms and easter eggs, which in the first versiondid not exist. Each section has at least one secret.

9. Soundtrack.

I wrote all of the soundtracks for the mod, andthe quality is even higher than the original version of the soundtrack of The Trap! It isalso suitable for normal listening, and you can download the files in flac, and mp3. Some fansof electronic music will appreciate the new soundtrack!

10. Stunning readme-file.

You will find complete information for The Trapmod describing all the elements of the game, possible technical problems, etc.Before opening, be sure that you have installed Microsoft Word.

Dear Reaktor;
That's what I call a MODIFICATION. The second best HL mod ever created. (The first is Paranoia. I'm very very sorry.) But still, it's a FANTASTIC JOB MAN!
Now, I'm asking this: Will you make the second one? Because I think this was not enough for me, now I still want to play the trap but it's too boring to pass all those levels again and again.
Thank you for this realm...

This really is a fantastic mod. Simple yet challenging, with a good mix of puzzles.

My only gripe is that it frequently calls me a cheater. Actually, it says "DIE CHITER" and kills me when I reach the end. I realize this is supposed to protect against people using noclip to skip puzzles, but unfortunately it also kills those of us who solve puzzles in our own, different ways.

A few examples: (spoiler alert)

1) The puzzle where there are three smashers going up and down together, and you're supposed to block them off with boxes, run across and retrieve the crowbar. My solution was to turn the fan on and time my jump so that I launched across the platform on its way up and slid to the crowbar. Had to redo the whole level after figuring out the moving platforms made the game think I'd cheated.

2) The puzzle with the plank that breaks when walking to the big power button (I think it's 4a) features a giant box with buttons to move it in different directions. I was able to hit the button and run around the fence fast enough to get to the far side before it did, then used the button to position it for the jump to the power button on the wall. Apparently this lets you skip a section of the puzzle, because I still had an extra green wire with me when I approached the exit and the game murdered me.

AFAIK noclip is already a non-functioning command in this game, so is there any way a patch could be released that would fix this aggravating behavior?

Anyway, aside from the notable frustration of reaching the end only to find out that I haven't solved it in the way the author thought I should, this really is an enjoyable mod despite running on the older Goldsrc engine, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes some mental stimulation.
