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.

I've played through the Trap and it's very good. You had made a good puzzle system and means of solving the puzzles in the Trap Complex. I kept getting frustrated whenever I couldn't figure out the answer to a chamber and felt stupid when I finally found it. XD

I was a bit sad when I found out I needed to collect (Was it all of the achievements or just the Major and Valuable ones?) to unlock the alternate ending. I haven't played the alternate ending yet since I can't get all of the achievements. Still, it's a great mod. 9/10

There is a "legal" cheat to unlock the alternate ending. ;)

In the last level (8A), BEFORE going down the ladder leading to the room with the achievements boards, jump over the protrusion behind you.
Next, facing the wall, standing on the right, jump while watching the ceiling and keep on clicking the E button. There is an INVISIBLE button on the ceiling! If you hear a "click" sound... that's done! You've unlocked 'legally' the alternate ending.
Now you are free to go down the ladder and following the usual path (the difference is: you keep the crowbar, so you don't have to kill the marine guy and are able to break the window).

The mod runs rather choppy for me, the fps randomly goes down every few seconds, and the screen tearing is very high. This isn't happening with regular half life or my other mods. Is this an issue or is it on my end? Thank you. Using 1.51
