* For all of the frustrated ones: there's a video walkthrough thread at We Create Stuff > Portal: TFV's forum, and some community help. Good luck :)

We started working on this project a couple of months ago, and now, it is finally done. Lately we've been working on this project none stop, acknowledging if we release it after the real Portal - we fail, and our test will be terminated ( ;). So yes, the last piece of code of this game was programed just a couple of minutes ago. Don't worry - those minutes were on bugs!

Portal: The Flash Version includes over 40 challenging, portals thinking levels, which features almost every feature the real game does, in 2d - energy balls, cubes, turrets and even the famous crusher from the trailer. The game also includes a console to mess around with after finishing the game, or just being frustrated by thinking with portals (Commands are posted in our forums)

Left mouse button - launch a portal.
A W D - movement
Q - launch a blue portal.
E - launch a yellow portal.
R - Close both portals.
F - pick up an object.
~ - open up console (enable through the options)
O - quick quality adjust.
Esc/P - pause game.

Version history:

The game really is heavy on levels 30 and up. We did our best to optimize it, but if you still have a low frame rate simply change your quality and effect settings.

If you find any bugs, please report.

I never thought this would be any good, thought it was a bit of a lame idea myself. But it is actually really good. Well done!

Superb Adaptation; Level Editor Please :)

This was definitely a great adaptation of Portal into 2D. The guys who made portal said that they made a 2D model of it first - I wonder if it was like this? The only thing I wished you had was it's sense of humor. Of course not everyone is a comdian, but it would have been nice, as humor is one of the great things about Portal (only thing keeping you from a 10).

I was actually thinking about making a 2D version of the game back when I saw the commercials, and I would still love to make an isometric one. Platforming's never been my thing though :(.

I don't know if you could flesh this out a bit more, but I had an idea where you could get the whole "half in on one side, half out on the other" by duplicating the movie clip to the other side, while moving a transparent mask to cover parts, then repositioning the original movie clip and deleting the duplicated one when more than half of you passes through. This is only an idea though - I plan on testing it soon , but seeing as you already have a basic engine of sorts for it, maybe you could try it out and tell me if it works.

But the whole game is full of Glee!
