Give the gift of portals to your closest friend this Christmas with these custom co-op maps. Enjoy various lethal activities with your friends such as constructing strategic tower defenses, racing through areas with dangerous amounts of apologetically-aggressive turrets or grab the companion cube for some threesome puzzle solving.
Tower Defense (by PortalCombat): The companion cubes are coming and this time are threatening to stab you and your robot family.This mini-game has no true objective besides making sure the companion cubes never see the exit. You might ask how do the companion cubes move if they have no feet? By floating platforms with companion cubes smuggled ontop of them. A terrific change of pace from your typical ‘I’m so stupid’ puzzle solving adventures.
The Amazing Race (by baca25): Find out who is the better portal-thinker with this competitive race map. Consisting of four chambers for you and your friend, you’ll be tested with quick reaction-based puzzles, long thought-inducing ones and new ideas you’ve never seen before. I recommend using the “+remote_view” from the console commands so you can always have an eye on your competition’s progress without having to press tab (also great for cheating, but you didn’t hear that from me).
Three Companions (by doubledispatch): In this map, the companion cube does not want to stab you and your family, in fact it wants to take you out for a candlelit dinner of cake fun. Featuring all the different puzzle elements that Portal 2 has to offer, this map is a fantastic example of utilizing them all elegantly. Paint with every kind of gel, walk on hard-light bridges and cuddle with your favorite companion cube between your co-op partner to succeed heartily.
Complexo (by jonatan): With a title like Complexo, you know right away that this map will test you and your friends’ mettle, which makes it a must if you love a true Portal 2 challenge. Be prepared to have your mind blown as you work with aerial faith plates, lasers and more to advance through this dastardly clever map. This one even challenged us so post any tips you have in the comments!
Discovery (by MrLate): Another challenge map but with an interesting twist. This campaign has three progressively harder maps with each containing two chambers. Once you finish one map, you will return to the lobby and the map will automatically change, spiffy! The difficulty curve is well-paced and the puzzles are almost Valve-like in terms of accessibility. This is another winner for those who love the typical cooperative puzzle action.
