Killer Valve offering Portal is currently Free on Steam! Here grab it and install it on your netbook! You have heard of Portal yeah? Its a strange mix of FPS, Platform and Puzzle. Kind of. Its quite compelling, you play from a FPS perspective, trapped in a small roomed puzzle defying gravity, and seemingly logic, to escape and move onto the next bizzare room. You do have a toy, a rather smart Portal Gun capable of creating, yeah you guessed, a portal (or hole!) which enables you to teleport around your space in an effort to move onto the next trap. Physics plays its part, seeing objects that go thru a portal come steaming out of, er.. well the portal exit! Sounds odd? Its is, buts its strangely addictive and includes some top class production values, courtesy of Valve.
Its a pretty good game regardless of the fact its currently free, we urge you to put Portal on your Netbook and see for yourself!
