See high res text graphics. Master physics bending puzzles. Escape the test chambers. Play ASCIIpOrtal!

ASCIIpOrtal is a unique puzzle game. You can create custom maps so even when the game is over the fun doesn’t need to end. Use a text editor or the ASCIIpOrtal Maps Editor by Mads Lund and share the maps you create on the ASCIIpOrtal forum.

ASCIIpOrtal is by Joe Larson with sounds designed by Steve Fenton. Original concept inspired by Increpare’s Portile game, Super Serif Bros, and Valve’s Portal. Source code is included in the zip. Simply unzip and play.

Original Videos/History

When ASCIIpOrtal began I determined to document the development process and publish interim builds on the ASCIIpOrtal development thread. When it got to the point that I didn’t want folks playing it out and getting bored with it (about the time I added the actual portal mechanic) I stopped publishing interim builds and made a video showing it off. That video went crazy popular and can be found here:

Bytejacker.fliggo.com

I followed it up with another video :

Youtube.com

Which brings us up to present day.

Brilliant game :-) I broke a few of the levels, but then that just made me feel really awesome and clever.

I got the secret ending too - nothing happened though: I was expecting cake :-S
