* 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.



this game is proably one of the best games on newgrounds. it does have several glitches but it is so well done that i dont care

Smart, Addictive, Fun

This is a great game. Perfect? Perhaps not. The final level is a bit too easy, and there are a few glitches here and there. But this comes close. The gameplay is addictive, the puzzles--and in the end, this IS a mind game--are incredibly smart, and the experience was fun enough to keep me playing through failure after failure.

However, don't play this unless you have a LOT of free time, because you'll never put it down.

Love this game!

Great game, nice scripting.

I keep on getting stuck at lvl 28, it is pretty hard :P

I think this game was almost as good as the real game actually, you should be hired for them :D


I got a laptop and I didn't want to take up disc space intalling the origional Portal on it. Not I got it where ever I go, thanks!!!!!!!! Oh also if you like this game Shift and Shift 2 are other great alternatives, check 'em out.

Simple and addictive

I've just finished this brilliant game. It was just difficult enough to be interesting, but not frustratingly so. That you managed to capture my attention for two hours is a testament to its quality.

That said, I was a little disappointed by the ending. Nice reference, but I'd have liked something a little more gratifying. Like, say, some speculation as to the identity or history of the test subject? Or maybe an unlockable bonus? Perhaps even just some eye candy! If you added that it would be perfect.

Overall, I'd describe this as a high-calibre game with few disappointments.
