If I invented a fantastic new type of gadget, I'd sit in my room and play with it all day. But that's not science, and in Yury Grigoryev's new puzzle platform game Portal Quest a minimum wage lab worker—that's you—has ended up in a deadly testing lab with today's new toy, a portal gun. Your goal is to escape the lab, moving with [WASD] and firing your portal gun by clicking the mouse. The portals are linked, so walking into one sees you emerge from the other, allowing unusual ways around a room.
Portal Quest takes obvious cues from both Valve's Portal and Portal: The Flash Version, but distinguishes itself with short, snappy puzzles and a clean pixel-art style of its own. Portal veterans will appreciate the way complex rooms end up with simple solutions and players new to the concept will also find a solid puzzle game in front of them. It's missing GlaDos, and cake, but makes up for it with 30 levels of perfectly pitched brainteasers. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.
