This Cake is Not a Lie: Portal on iPhone is Real
Last week a mysterious video surfaced of what appeared to be Portal, Valve’s popular puzzle game, running on the iPhone. Many commenters on YouTube, Reddit and other social sites called it a fake. And who could really blame them. The game shown in the video looked nearly identical to the PC version, how could a mobile device run a desktop class game? True, Portal is by no means a power hog like Crysis, but it’s not exactly mobile friendly either.
After reading through various comment threads I started to seriously doubt the validity of the video myself. So I contacted the creator of video to gather more information. He was kind enough to send me a copy of the game. I loaded it up on my iPhone 3GS and off I went. Even after launching the game and getting some hands on time with it apart of me still had trouble believing. I was simply amazed that Portal could actually run on the iPhone.
