v1.0
-Converted map to Left 4 Dead 2
-Added new weapons
-Added uncommon infected
-Added wandering witches
-Added Scavenge mode

Note: This campaign is an homage to Portal and more intended to be a lark than a serious endeavor. Enjoy!

This is a much different campaign that my last submission. I created this homage as a way of testing cooperative puzzles.

I built it with the idea that at least 2 humans would play it together on the survivor team. Several puzzles require 2 players to solve them. In each case I have an alternate (single player) solution that will cause a panic event as a penalty for not using teamwork.

It features random spawning puzzle objects for replayablity.

Pros:

• Portal Themed
• Mazes and Puzzles
• Working Portal Mechanic

Cons:

• Weird Bot Navs [Randomly teleports or is just bad]
• Boring and Dull
• Floating Weapons in Map 2 [Wasn't sure if intentional]
• Very Frustrating Repetitive Layout
• Disinteresting Finale

Conclusion:

Pretty interesting but just overly boring and very repetitive and I recommend getting a friend for this as some puzzles really need to 2 or more people.

I like the idea behind the campaign, but that's about it. This campaign is boring both mechanically and visually.

Pros:

Cool portal theme

Interesting puzzles

Creative

Cons:

Pretty boring visuals, even if Portal-esque features were pretty cool for any Portal fans.

Repetitive puzzles

No voice acting/story

The gas cans you need to weigh down the button can roll off easily. See below problem...

I ended up dying in single player mode because my AI wouldn't get inside the doorway.The infected made the gas can roll off and I had to step on the button on the other side of the door in order to keep the door open so that they'd follow me, but an armored infected kept them there for ages. I decided to climb the ladder to help kill the armored infected while staying behind the door so I could open it in case they accidentally ignited the can, but a jockey grabbed me and incapacitated me. Despite Ellis being on the same side of the door I was, none of them came to my aid, even after the armored infected died. I inevitably died. That's partly my fault, but it would've helped if the AI was smart enough to figure out that they can unlock the door once I've already reached the other side so that they could help you if you're downed and they're trapped.

After I restarted and completed that section, I got to the bigger puzzle. Where I died again. I couldn't find the route to the safe room even though I could see the glow of the door. I assumed you entered the twin doors and go through that way, but the doors wouldn't open for me. Ellis and Coach, somehow, melded through the wall and entered the safe room, leaving Rochelle and I to die since I accidentally startled the witch and she had a jockey on her. Since Ellis and Coach were already in the safe room, I guess their AI wouldn't let them leave to help.

Conclusion:

If you're a Portal fan, or even if you like puzzles, this is a pretty decent campaign. It's creative and a fun little puzzle campaign. It won't keep you entertained for too long, however, and the AI have pretty bad issues that could leave you dead numerous times.

It would've been really cool to have some sort of story and voice acting attached to this. You could probably make all sorts of in-jokes and references. Heck, maybe even try to emulate GLaDOS's voice.
