* 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 own the real Portal and this in comparison, is cool. A free version of portal? awesome. the down-scores are that moving is way too responsive. try making a sequel. it attracts more attention. btw, turrets are way too strong compared to real one. only added 9 for the cake! it's not a lie! on the electric fryer trap.

Good game but..

This is a really good game but I have two very large complaints:

A) The jumping can be really nonresponsive sometimes. I find myself getting nervous making small jumps over gaps because I'm afraid of just running down the hole. And secondly..

B) The running is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaay too responsive. Like jesus christ, I can get so far, then I'll try to edge up to something and just start sprinting off in that direction with a slight tap of the key. It gets really really really ridiculous. I can't count how many times I've had to redo levels, for this one and only reason. It makes some levels unplayable.

The portal!

When I first saw the name of this game, I thought it was going to be a simulation of the flash portal! This is in fact probably better than that anyway. It's funny to play a game that appeared in both the Action and Puzzles Games section. I can see why this is so popular, because it is extremely authentic. I have just seen this being demonstrated in popular culture so many times I know all about how to use it. It's great how you can truly create your own world with this game.

While not that detailed, it makes up for in terms of gameplay. It is a great way to express your creativity and it's fun just to see new elements show up on every level. It also helps that this is really easy for me as the instructions are basic. It's so fun and detailed it would make it on any gaming system. Thank you for making so many levels to show off your talent at flash games.
