Upside down!

I’ve been thinking in portals the last few weeks, so I made a puzzle platformer with portals.
The portals are like tunnels: you shoot one end, and another appears at the other side.

Once again, my project grew as I worked on it. I told myself I’d make a very short demo of the portal mechanic, since I graduate in a week and have final projects to attend to. But I was having too much fun with it, and I had to implement all of my ideas!

I decided to up the resolution from my usual 320×240 (and then zoomed x2) to 640×480. I adjusted my art style to something a bit cleaner, and I’m happy with the result.

I’ve always struggled with level design, particularly puzzle design, so I took this as a challenge to improve my skills. Hopefully the results are enjoyable!
