Really solid metroidvania with portalesque mechanics... might seem like a rip-off but its really done so well and transfered so naturally to 2D that its a game that deserves to be played by any platformer enthusiast that likes their action mixed in with a heavy dose of puzzle solving.

Gateways is a puzzle-plattformer in which you control scientist Ed, who is try to get out of his own laboratory. The game starts with simple jump-and-run and “gateway-puzzles”, somewhat similar to Valve’s Portal, but quickly becomes more challenging as you find more powerful Items (powerups and modifications to your “gateway gun”) which let you explore new areas of the lab.

Sadly, I found the introduction into the game (and it’s items) unnecessarily hard. For me it was basically learning by doing. New items are introduced via popup-text (which is gone for good if you run away too quickly) and a simple puzzle, in which you have to use your newly found item.

But for me that was just not sufficient. It was until 90% into the game, that I (by accident) found out there is actually a map of the lab, guiding you to important spots, and a key to cancel active portals. Yes, I could have clicked on “CONTROLS” earlier. But why? I assumed, the game would tell me, like any other game would.

This is especially odd, as the ingame-help-system is really awesome. In the lab you can find 500 “power orbs”, which can help you with tough puzzles: Every puzzle in the game (apart from the final one) has a “HELP”-spot, in which you can spend a small amount of your “power orbs” to see, whether you can actually solve this puzzle with your current items and a BIG amount of your orbs to actually get it solved.

This is a brilliant way to prevent frustration (as long as you save your orbs for those REALLY tough puzzles) and keep the game going. The map, which not only tells you, where you should go next, but also shows every unsolved puzzle you have walked by so far, is also really helpful. I’d go so far to say: without this ingame-help, I would probably not have recommended this game.

Overall Gateways is a decent game with a VERY steep learning curve. The gameplay is entertaining but can become frustrating, especially if you used your power orbs too early. If you like challengig puzzles and don’t mind being thrown into ice cold water, you should have a look at this game!

Gateways has a decent concept, sort of in the vein of those Portalesque games that followed in it's wake, but a reasonably decent game.

Although, unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish the game. The puzzle design has some of the most difficult puzzles in the game being mandatory to complete, which wouldn't be a problem normally. But, the mechanic you unlock near the end of the game that enables these puzzles involves a lot of key timing and platforming that ended up being far too twitchy for me to finish.

Ultimately, because I have no 'maybe' option, I have to vote No on Gateways because of this. Perhaps if they had structured the game a little differently I could recommend it. But sadly, if any of what I mentioned seems like a red flag for you, I'd look elsewhere.

This game was a dud. Instead of being fun and untuitive, it went the way of crapy logi-gun and make everything unnecessarily convoluted. It is basically portal but some of the portals do more things. It starts out fine enough but then the time gun makes no sense and is overly convoluted. You then need to make 4 copies of yourself sometime and then do a specific thing with each one without touching the others, as that resets everything. There is so much repetition and trial and error to figure out puzzles. Walkthroughs barely help because everything is so complicated and requires so many steps and needs to be perfectly placed that words don't help, only videos. Unfortunately since like nobody plays this turd anyways there are like no video walkthroughs on youtube, nor is their anything in the community page, and the only written walkthrough online jumps around randomly/doesn't make sense and isn't well done. The conrols suck on pc and are even worse on controller. Everything is finicky and too touchy, especially when you need to be precise. Saving should be done before each puzzle so you don't have to go through others to get back to one. The inclusion "of metroidvana" is just annoying and unnecessary. So much annoying backtracking and having to do mechanics again just to traverse the level. There is random boosts like jumping that you actually need to finish puzzles but they can be hard to find and in this giant randomly made map with no specific direction or flow its a lot of running around looking for it. Apparently it gets even more convoluted and confusing at the end of the game, growing so annyoingly complicated the makers released a video of how to beat the final puzzle, which took 4 minutes of them doing straight through. No thanks, I decided to get out 3/4 through the game when thinks already sucked enough. No story at all. Terrible graphics. Music was ok. 4.5/10.
