like 2D Portal but not like Portal

Posted on 2013-09-24 10:16:25 byiondrive's avatariondrive:

You could give this game 5 stars for creativity but I took off a star because it seemed like something was missing. You'll be tempted to call this a 2D version of Portal but it's better in some ways (more kinds of guns/portals) and not in others. What's missing is more of that Portal-like puzzle/level design that was so much fun in that game. Another thing I think this game needsread more is better enemies and a little more combat but that's just a personal preference.
Regarding gateway gun usage, you'll really have to put an effort into wrapping your brain around what the other guns can do and how they can be used together especially the time-travel gun and the gravity gun. There are definitely some brilliant ideas in this game like the way you can see through the gateways and how you can buy puzzle solutions when you get stuck. So, who's this game for? It's for people who want to casually figure out platforming puzzles using portals in a 2d world while their brain melts from the strain of understanding time-travel.
One final note. There should be a level editor with this game but I don't currently see any mention of it so I don't really know if it's available yet.

Only the person writing the game needs XNA.

I haven't played this, so I can't actually comment on the game. However, I wanted to counteract the misinformation posted by ghostbuster95.
XNA is a toolkit used to write games. You do not, under any circumstance, need XNA to run a released game.

Portal Meets Super Metroid

Posted on 2014-05-15 23:27:28 byAspieGamer's avatarAspieGamer:

This is one of the finest puzzle games ever made. If you're craving for the mind-bending puzzles of Portal get this game immediately. There isn't much of a story and the ending's a bit predictable. Also the final puzzle is WAY too hard. Also the soundtrack is stellar. Overall, a good game, worth playing for sure.
