Portal 2 Looks Fun Even Without Portals

Portal 2 Looks Fun Even Without Portals

A few months ago, we took a look at Aperture Tag, a Portal 2 mod that replaces the portal gun with a gun that can shoot the blue and orange gels to craft the levels into a bouncy, speedy wonderland. It’s finally out and it’s looking even better than before.

The mod adds a whole new storyline with 27 levels, and even has its own level editor. Check out the latest trailer here:

I haven’t gotten to play the release version of the game yet, but you can see the video I did with an early version below. Have you tried it? Let us know what you think in the comments!

The game is out now on Steam for $US6.99, but you can get it for 30 per cent off until July 22, right here.


  • Not having played it yet, the steam reviews look pretty bad… Maybe I should just watch a let’s play or something instead.

    • I was thinking the same thing. After reading reviews this morning I gathered that the free mods are just as good.

  • Wait.. How are they legally allowed to charge money for a Portal 2 mod? I’m confused, aren’t mods only legal (they ignore copyright laws) because they’re free?

    • They would have negotiated with Steam, with them taking a cut of sales. There has been a few mods released like this – garrys mod comes to mind.

  • Bear in mind that the developers of the original “Tag” were recruited by Valve prior to Portal 2’s development. The core paint mechanic from “Tag” was incorporated into the game.

  • A name like this really belongs to a vs game. But that’s just me. I read that title and I think to myself aperture vs with paint
