What could be more awesome than Portal you ask? Well, how about Portal on your DS?!?! That’s right homebrew devs Smealum and Lobo have created a version of Portal for the DS! It has 14 playable levels and even a snazy level editor!

The devs have managed to pack in most of the mechanics from the original Portal and the level editing from Portal 2; this is kind of like a Portal 1.5.

Keep in mind that this is the first public release, so as the devs note: “it’s buggy but mostly playable,” don’t expect a perfectly polished game. 

It’s an interesting idea and one that would likely not have ever come about without the homebrew community, Valve doesn’t exactly have much of a relationship with Nintendo and I’ve never heard of any plans to officially port it to the handheld.

Here’s a reminder that this is homebrew so if you don’t know what homebrew is, it’s probably not for you. 

I wonder how long it will be before Valve or Nintendo takes notice of this and either a) hire them right away or shut them down for breaking the rules….
