This Week’s Flash Game: Portal

This is a side-scrolling platform/puzzle game based on the idea of a “portal gun” that can create portals on surfaces. Fire one onto one wall, the second onto another wall, step through the first, emerge through the second. It’s essentially an ad for the three-dimensional version from Valve, but it’s still fun.

I think I’ve only gotten as far as level 14 so far. The full version is itself based on a game with the amazing name of Narbacular Drop—apparently that name was chosen because it would be easy to search for online. Apparently the developers of this game now all work for Valve, which means it was fairly successful for them. I intend to try it out at some point, it’s available for free here.
