Is it a 2D version of portal?
Because if it is, then I need this.

It is.
Even the story seems to have a similar goal - escape.

Haven't played it but I've kept an eye on it since I first heard about it. Downloading the demo now to see if it's going to get my £££££££££££££££££££££££

It's that and more. I've only played a little bit, but so far it's great. I can't comment on the length, but it should be well worth it for the price.

just finished playing a bit of the demo. stopped shortly after getting the gun. I'm sold. yeah, it's definitely a 2d Portal. Plays nice so far.

Hope it's at least a few hours long. Gonna' get it.

The Portal gun is only the first thing you get. Getting much more complicated then. But good fun so far!

It's prety much a metroidvania game with some portal mechanics. There are even kinds of portal mechanics that are not of the original portal game, which makes it even better.

yea this is a 2d portals game, but once u get the other 3 portals guns the game gets mindboggling hard

After short play I can recomend that game as some creative portal evolution in 2D environment. Sometimes it is really mindbending, because it's only 2D, and need sometimes really open-mind to get the point of puzzle, but it is definitelly worth playing and support for the authors. Price is not so high, so you won't be disapointed by that.

I'm loving this game. I love that when you're confronted with a puzzle there's a simple mechanic to tell you if you currently have the tools necessary to complete it. So no wasting time. Brilliant. It's also cool that after you beat the puzzle you have the option of having the game show you the solution.

The only thing I don't like is the annoying noise your avatar makes when jumping. It gets old fast.

I like the puzzles in the game... but the time machine gun is just annoying.

I wonder how this ever made it past Steam approval... I'd expect they'd go "Portal clone? REJECT!" Though the time machine and size changing mechanics look pretty interesting!

You play with portals in a puzzly game, that is really where the similarities end. It's a castlevania/metroidy platformer that has lots of really quite tricky and satisfying puzzles. I like it quite a bit. While it shares the concept of using portals to solve environmental puzzles calling it a portal clone is really just preposterous, they are totally different.

"I'd expect they'd go 'Portal clone? REJECT!'"
- Well fortunately Valve is not so petty. There is nothing illegal (or even immoral) about borrowing some ideas from another game. Thank goodness for that, too, or else there'd only be about 10 games in existence.

Calling it just a Portal clone would be doing Gateways a disservice. This game does take ideas from Portal, but then it runs with them in a completely different direction. I bought it and I'm enjoying it a lot so far (in a completely different way that I enjoyed the Portals).

This game look very interesting for me i love 8 bit games, but this portal travelling looks really confusing.... do you guys think it's easy to navigate in this game? Because vids looks really confusing.

Why not let it past??? Should they reject any other shooters similar to Valve games, just cause they are competitive products???
