Portal, for the C64

Portal (Wikipedia), the hot game of 2007, was a huge hit on Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation3.

Today, Jamie Fuller with Del Seymour on graphics have released Portal for Commodore 64 (yes, C64! which was discontinued in 1994).

Portal, for the C64, was designed to feel like a modern PC game, and so was designed with mouse and keyboard as the control method of choice. To play using a mouse you will need a 1351 Commodore Mouse (or compatible adapter etc) plugged into port 1. To play using a joystick, plug it into port 2. Either option you choose is purely to control the aiming,  keyboard is always used to control Chell.

With music by Roy Widding, this brings strong gameplay to the venerable C64 (and C64 emulators).

And the best part: You can download it now at https://www.jamiefuller.com/portal/ PAL & NTSC.

See the video below the graphic below for look and feel. And let us know in the comments about your favorite Commodore gaming experience.
