Description:
ASCIIpOrtal

Grab your hand-held portal device and enter the test chambers for a
non-euclidean good time.

ASCIIpOrtal is a text based puzzle game inspired by the popular video game.
In ASCIIpOrtal you overcome challenges by placing portal way-points, joining
two points in the map. If they player or any object passes through one portal
way-point it will seamlessly exit the other. Since both way-points are the
same point on the map the player's view through the portal reflects this and
space warps around you as you pass through the portal.

From the main menu you can choose to 'Begin' from the first map, 'Select
Level' to visit any level you've already beaten, 'Change Map Set' to load a
new set of levels from any map set subdirectory in your ASCIIpOrtal
directory, Read the 'Instructions', view the map set's 'Credits', or 'Quit'
the game.

Within the game you can use the following keys to play:
Left/Right ........ Move Left/Right
Up/Down ........... Move Up/Down Ladders
or adjust aim.
(R) / (A) ......... Fire Blue Portal
(L) / (B) ......... Fire Yellow Portal
(X) ............... Fire 'Next' Portal
(Y) ............... Cancel Portals
9 ................. Game Speed Up
0 ................. Game Speed Down
Start ............. Menu
Select ............ Portal View Options
h ................. Help screen

The goal of each level is to make it to one of exits on the level. Exits
appear as an E on a green field.

@Silent-Hunter, for those kind of level, you can slowdown the game (with 0), it's easier to aim, than put the speed back to normal (with 9).

I love this game, but it gets too hard for me too fast. I can't get past the level pictured in the last screenshot.

This is so much fun! Plays like it was made for the Pandora, and really feels like Portal. Some levels are a bit hard, I hope I'll manage to play it through.
