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.

Man, this mod is great, BUT : on some maps it keeps killing me with "DIE CHITER" message, although I don't cheat. On the map, where you have to find that machinegun barrel, I wasn't able to jump for that "shootable button" on a green box in a corner (I didn't even know I had to get it). And the door where one have to put that button is little bit buggy - I shot that green wire thru them (in a corner near the door), that stopped that "smashing/killing piece of wall next-door" and I then got the barrel. Then the teleport killed me for cheating :(

yuppp...as the author said: a trap for my brain. it has not too much of the portal atmosphere, it's rather a comic hl world. and the noclip protection was a good idea too, portal has it too at the special challanges.

Jesus christ that's a nice Mod. I'm glad to see the half-life modding community is not dead, far from it, even though half-life 2 is out! I was highly impressed by the genius mapping ideas and the witty use of the Spirit Of Half-life in this Mod, it makes me want to start mapping again! Also, good job on the music choice and editing, it fits perfectly and adds to the atmosphere highly. I didn't feel like i was playing the real half-life at all! (well maybe a little... :D) good job!
