This is a relatively difficult linear puzzle map featuring different puzzles and 2 boss fights. After completing each section a new portal will spawn and will bring you to the next area. Can be played with any gametype that has unlimited time and has Machinima mode ON. There is a movement bug in the 6th portal that can fix itself but ends up bugging out again, then fixing itself and so on. If you do plan on playing it, expect 1-2 hours with a recommended 1-4 players.
Special thanks to the map testers and of course, A Squid Loaf for helping with scripting bugs.
Hints are actually hints and solutions.
If you look at the walls you'll se black bars, and if you walk parallel with the black bars they will kill you. So just jump and crouch your way through the room. However the two walls may look symmetrical but they may not be throughout...
The N on the wooden block represents a compass, and the 1 with a bar under it is a unit of measurement.On the shore by the slanted palm tree, there are crates and one of them is on normal physics, push it out of the way and it points to the tree, follow it up the tree and there is another arrow pointing off around the corner of the rocks.
Up above is a chess board looking structure, as well as below. Up above though there are piano keys that play when you step on it, one sounds different. When you stand on it a nav marker appears and you can do what it says on the chess board below.
On the side of the big, middle rock, there are arrows pointing towards a center point.Around the area there are hazard suits, and big, opened flowers with a hazard suit face inside them that play piano notes, one sounds different.
Part 2:You are caged in, and one of the bars are different from the others.
This boss uses lightning on you, and the goal is to survive for 30 seconds on the stone platform. Each time you step on the platform it resets. The lightning does have a pattern to it, however it doesn't despawn if you die to the first or second wave of it. HIGHLY recommended to start at the center of it, after the lightning strikes there.
Use the mirror to find out which vial is different from the others, then find something of the color that is different. Some of the vials may have a movement bug and keep going, ignore those and focus on the mirror, they might end up fixing themselves as well.
Use the vines to line up to where 8 of the letters on the wall are not covered by vines.With the rock with a vine on it, there is 4 boulders in the ground, stand between them to find the solution.
Follow the arrows to the arrow that points up, use that as a source to read what's on the wall in front of it (Machinima mode hint) and look up, then go up to the red light and look at the clues there. I am aware that some controller layouts have machinima mode using different buttons.After understanding the clue, there is a fire by the entrance to the area where you can die to respawn in portal 5 area, to look at the radar by the fire which reads, "Big Rock" go over to the big rock in the rock arrangement behind the caged area and find the hidden button there.
Part 2:The big rock in the middle kills you when it smashes the lava, and will kill you for about .5 seconds after hitting it, so don't be in a rush.
Part 3:The colored squares on the path are needed to destroy the MAGICAL fusion coil, stand on the matching color to be able to shoot it. This opens the door at the end.
Part 4:The platforms go down into the lava after being stepped on, time it right so the big rock doesn't kill you between jumps.
Part 5:Two of the 3 squares kill you, even or odd.
In the room, there are 6 numbers on the wall, hit the 6 numbers that you were able to walk on safely to get to that room.
It's a boss, get to the top, find the button and win. There is a chance you may get kicked out of Halo after hitting it, but it says "Game Over" so if this happens, know there is no greater way to end a puzzle map. If it doesn't, there is a W and a banshee behind the portal.
Hopefully you don't need to use the hints/solutions too much throughout. Also hope you enjoy playing it!
