Lumiappdates: Portals 2D with new levels to download + level editor

| May 10, 2012 | Reply

I don’t normally write posts about WP app updates (there’d be too many) but this is one I wanted to share because it makes the game more usable (again).

Actually I missed the 1.3 update (I may have blindly clicked update as it’s too easy to update stuff).

I loved the game ‘Portals 2D’ but the game ended a little too quickly for me. Fortunately from 1.3 onwards, you can create your own levels and download some more online from other users. What’s cool is that even on the online levels, you can still see a mini animated demo of the level, which wil start instantly when you tap it (no downloading? :S).

Ah, pretty much endless supply of levels means I can always use this as an occasional time waster. (So many times portals 2D has helped me kill time waiting for things, appointments, delayed trains etc :p)

Update 1.4: Minor fixes; screen should not go black after restarting some levels, playing your own levels does not count toward its popularity, author name shown above level name. Also a server-side fix stopping levels from appearing multiple times.

Update 1.3: Sorry for the slow update, I’ve been busy with University. This release has a Level Editor and online directory of levels, fixed portal bug, a few animation / sound fixes, small performance optimisations. Hopefully coming soon: Resizable custom levels, ability to pre-place portals in levels, more details about plays/completes/dificulty of custom levels, ability to search custom levels by ID, save custom levels locally and share level files with friends.

To update, just go to marketplace (Live Tile tells you how many updates you have available) Scroll to Portals 2D or update all of them.
