Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you are in a small central room with a connector and a red emitter on the back wall.

On the right is the first room, where a teleporter is visible through a window, and a red receiver on the inside of the room controls a blue door leading back out. There is also a ladder in case one gets stuck inside.

Further in, on the left side is a small room whose access is controlled by a red receiver outside. Inside the room is a hexahedron.

Closer to the entrance, on the left side, are a series of rooms, each blocked off by blue doors. Access to the first one, which we are calling "Room 3", is controlled by a red receiver outside. A pressure plate controls access to the next room, Room 4. Another pressure plate inside controls access to Room 5 to the right, and then a final pressure plate gives access to the progress wheel.

If you're running out of items to place on the final pressure plate:

[ hint ]
Remember again that you can teleport while holding items. Don't be afraid to allow some doors to close behind you if you don't need it anymore
