Interception is a single-player map featuring a fairly challenging puzzle involving two clean-style chambers, funnel, laser, and light bridge. The puzzle is somewhat more difficult than the official Portal 2 puzzles.

There should be 2-3 "AHA!" moments in the puzzle. The solution is not technically difficult to execute. If you find yourself frustrated or performing some stunt repeatedly, you should find an easier way.

Major Updates:
Version 1.2 fixed a potential scenario where the player can become trapped in a chamber.
Version 1.5 added one more "AHA!" moment.
Version 1.52 compiled with high dynamic range rendering effects.
Version 1.56 added elevator videos and GLaDOS speech.
Version 1.58 added a Rattman den.

I accidentally deleted this map from the Vault, but here it is again.

I wish I still had Portal 2 installed.

Are you that tight on disk space?

Even though most maps can only be played once, there are countless number of custom maps being made for it. Some of them are perhaps even better than the official maps made by Valve.

It seems the download is broken. :(

I broke the link when I upgraded my SSD last week. It should work now.

Thanks for letting me know.

This is one of the most difficult puzzles I played in a while. Frankly, the solution wasn't clear from the start, and I think I spent about 30 minutes trying to solve this map!

It took me a while to figure out the tricks necessary to pass the test chamber. It was almost frustrating :D.

About the mapping- I can't complain. Portal 2 style quality.

5 stars for an excellent brain teaser!
