Yeah, very cool. The computer voice might be the best part though.

I'm stuck, plz help. On last level (19)

(mini spoilers)

in tall vertical room with Fan at very top, and a bunch of those big pipes moving back and forth around overhead. At the top area there is a grate surrounding 3 walls and a regular wall on the 4th side.

Can post a screenshot if no one can figure out where I'm talking about.

I'm stuck on 18 of 19 (can't find a way to get at the box at the other end of the room). Only took an hour to get there. Way too short.

I think the entire last half is the 19th level. If I'm thinking of the same spot you need to put a portal to get on the moving pipes which will give you an angle to stick a portal through the fence. If that's not the right spot post a screenie if you haven't figured it out.

The wall slants when you hit the button. Put a portal on that and one on the platform at the bottom and jump into it.

i have a feeling there will be many mod packs with new puzzles, or official releases, in the future.
That would be great. The game is as long as a tutorial, because that's really what it is. The ending makes the experience into a "game". But just when I learned all the skilled, like the "double fling", the game is over.

Need more levels. because I enjoyed the shit out of it.

First time played thought 2:40, the second time 1:38. Too short.

Ah yes, thank you. I had a epiphany and the "fling" solution came to me. I love it, when I have that, "but of course" moment. Sign of a great puzzle game.
Thanks.

And the pipe room problem:
The pipe room is basically portaling from pipe top to pipe top, then to not get crushed at the top, but angle a shot over the fence on to the ledge. One of the tougher spots in the game.

The ending song was fucking fantastic. I was also impressed with the AI's one-liners throughout the game.

i love the end fight, especially when it says "stop now and we can have a party, i'll even invite your best friend - the companion cube. But we can't, because you killed him!"

There will indeed be either DLC with new stages or they will port some of the PC usermade puzzles into the xbox 360 version

Bah, I've beaten the first 5 advanced levels but I'm stuck on what's probably a stupid part on the 6th. It's at the beginning, after you double fling across the water there's a hole in the wall to the left and a portal-able wall to the right, everything else is stone, how do you get up there?

I'm on level 18 which I'm saving for later.

Great game but I found it too easy to figure out. I thought it would be a little more mentally taxing. The biggest difficulty is trying to line up portals accurately when one is required on the ceiling. My depth perception sucks so it takes me several attempts to get it right.
