The Game!
Portal is a fun and witty, heavily engaging, first person, puzzle platform game, that only depends on the puzzle elements and rules that it sets, to make all your moves on, and escape the solitary confinements of an abandoned science centre.
If the thing above is giving you a scene of white halls and rooms, with smooth steel and psycho Artificial Intelligence enjoying the human silliness, then you guessed totally right.
But if you also thought it to be something old and boring then there you are wrong, the simple yet very effective physics based puzzles, the silent but heavily indicating to a horrific past story, the magnificent overall presentation brings this independent project from the mighty Valve Corporation into the realm of big time games.
The Gameplay!
You are Chell, a female, silent protagonist who wakes up from a deep slumber (stasis) and is instantly mocked and jeered by the surrounding and controlling artificial intelligence, GLaDOS, it urges Chell to try and escape the challenges ahead and earn a chance to win a cake as the big prize!
You know you are in ten different kinds of clown shit troubles when a super intelligent computers taunts you to try its challenges for a cake as reward, but Chell has no other options so she takes it on and what happens next is awesome man!
Presented in first person view, the only thing you get as a firearm is the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device or short for, a Portal Gun. It creates two interdimensional doors, first aim it on a flat plane that will act as the entrance then shoot second time on another flat plane to make that one act as the exit.
So if you shoot a portal, first on the floor, and then on the wall on the far left side, of some imaginary hall, and then jump into the first one, you will emerge out from the second one in the far left wall, of that imaginary hall!
Welcome to Portal, now escape it!

The weird fun of Portal is back in Portal 2 but with more, much more to give to its newly made fanbase.
Loads more gadgets and objects that are so curious and interesting to use and are very important to cross all the mind bending puzzles and arenas.
Chell returns, although unwillingly and gets trapped in the science chambers again, she gets help from another AI, Wheatley who suddenly turns on her and she gets help from an unusual source, GLaDOS.
And in this love hate tag team, Chell learns of the true past of the whole mess and we learn that this whole thing has something to do with Half-Life series!
Well played Valve, well played indeed.
The Gameplay!
If we leave out the madness and awesomeness of the Portal Gun alone, then there are Tractor Beams, bridges made from lights, laser directioning and redirectioning and paint gels that create another floors for the Portal Gun.
If you do not know your Sci-Fi lingo yet, the above line means even more steel cold madness with a threat of probing looming in the subconscious; we don’t know why we are even writing this thing here!
The mind boggling puzzles return, with great storytelling that gives a full on history and context of the series, performances by big names like J K Simmons (J Jonah Jameson in the Sam Raimi Spiderman series), Dee Bradley Baker and of course, Ellen McLain.
