You don’t know where you are, or what’s happened. What you do know is that you’re now a test drone in a mysterious laboratory with an unknown voice guiding you through the laboratory, while insulting you in very conspicuous ways. You are not alone either in this testing category, it seems you have a buddy to help you through this “test”. You’ve come to realize that you’re going to have to get to know him really well, whether you want to or not, because you can’t get through this lab alone. Become friends, because each other is the only way out.
Block Science Laboratories is a co-op puzzle map that’s based on the famous Valve game, Portal. Like the game, you and a friend will have to go through many chambers that have different puzzles with the one thing we all love, the Companion Cube. Every chamber will require you and your friend to complete certain tasks on their side, usually bordered off by glass. Completing one side will help either you or your friend, which in return will help you get to the end of the chamber and proceed onto the next.
The package includes a texture pack that’s very nicely designed to look exactly like the Portal test chambers. This map also uses bukkit features and plugins to create something a little more than just vanilla puzzles, but nothing very fancy that would make it more complicated to install than to actually figure out the in-game puzzles. There is a package that includes everything already pre-made and installed to make things easier, thanks to the creator.
