Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a large room with many nooks. All four corners of the room have some gravity surfaces on the top corners; some have them vertically, and some have both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

  • The front left nook has an area that is blocked off by a blue door, and has the progress wheel and a red receiver behind it.
  • The front right nook has a connector
  • The rear left nook has another connector
  • The rear right nook has a red emitter pointed backwards.
  • Near the rear right nook, in the middle of a giant plus-shaped concrete wall, is a gravshifter.


A basic hint:

There are two corners with horizontal gravity surfaces, use those. Then move the equipment further.
