Apple Games Features Portal
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Apple Games has posted a new feature article focusing on Portal, Valve Software's first person puzzler recently released for Macs. In the game "players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals, maneuvering objects, and moving themselves through space in ways that used to be impossible." Apple's article includes an in-character overview of the game as well as some helpful tips and a list of cheat codes.

GLaDOS wanted me to take some tests: a portal would open in one wall, and I would step through it and come out a portal in another wall. Pick up a box, put it on a switch, and open the door. Simple enough, right? Then I entered a room where I was given my own Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (ASHPD) — a handheld gun that could shoot a portal anywhere I wanted. Well, almost anywhere; I soon discovered that some surfaces wouldn’t accept portals. And I had no control over where the exit portal was placed, although it was usually in a spot that worked to my advantage.

With no way to turn back, I made my way through 19 tests, each one featuring a series of puzzles more fiendishly difficult than the last. GLaDOS promised me cake when I was done, but she also said grief counseling would be available. Yes, the second part put me on edge, but what could I do?
