Have you ever played Portal? Did you like it? And have you ever wondered how would it look in 2D, with pixelarty cartoony graphics and with other portals like resizing ones? Wonder no more and try this logical platformer game. The puzzles aren't totally easy and will make you scratch your head from time to time. The rooms are vast and there's a lot to discover. I really like this game's take on Portal ideas and mechanics and I recommend it.

2D pixel platformer using portals. There isn't really much of anything interesting in this game, even with the portal mechanics. For the price, it's OK, but it gets kind of boring and tedious.

This game is unplayable (in term of gameplay). Not worth any money.

aww yes, this game is fun. It took me a long time to solve the last puzzle, but I finally figured it out. Onto the workshop levels!

This game really does surprise you. It comes off as "portal, but in 2D, and minus the sense of humor." And well, it kind of is, but it does so much more. The puzzles get progressively harder and more complex as you get different guns, and the last sequence of puzzles before the end is kind of just completely brain-melting. There's a surprisingly high execution factor in some cases, as well. And this is only the normal difficulty. I've not played the game's "hard" mode but I doubt I'd be able to complete it if I did. The graphics are kind of ugly though, all things considered, but that's a minor knock against it.
